Wow! Where has the summer gone? When the summer comes to an end I am usually knee deep in fall projects. While I am working on new projects, there doesn’t seem to be as many things finished as I like for this time of year. Since I just finished cleaning out the barn and got my youngest moved to college, I’ve decided to be happy with the things I have accomplished.
Inspiration for my rats came from a little adventure in the garage. While cleaning the barn I didn’t see one actual rat. I became rather adjusted to that fact. Then one of my sons saw a rat in the garage. Hmm…well, I do live in the country…Regardless, it is no longer there. Whew!!!
The rat was still on my mind when I grabbed my design book and started doodling. I haven’t worked up a tutorial yet, but I couldn’t wait to show off these creepy little critters. The tutorial will be coming soon.
It came from this spool! I placed a ruler next to the spool so you could appreciate its size. I picked up this gargantuan spool of cording at a yard sale for less than a dollar. It looks like it will never run out!
