A Portrait Of The Artist

Just thought we'd show you this gem.  Polly received this from a hooking friend this week.  It's her portrait hooked in wool.  An incredible likeness, no?  Uh, people - this amazing portrait is a "pin" to wear and measures 2" x 3".

Tish Murphy is the talented artist who did this.  Brava, Tish!

Tish worked from a photo to create this.  Polly and I find this hard to believe since we are on record saying there are no decent photos of us in existence.  It kind of makes this all the more incredible.

We hope Spring is springing wherever you are (or falling - for those of you Down Under) - Later.....

That is amazing and to be able to hook that in such a small space. That is a cute idea for a pin, not sure if I could hook someone that small though, lol. I did do a few animal and one person in punch needle.

Wow! Polly, that's an incredible likeness. What talent!

Cool! The tiny portrait works surprisingly well due to the subtle color gradations of the wool.

That's pretty impressive!
We won't have Spring for quite a while--our lilac bushes are buried under huge piles of snow and our double wide driveway is only shoveled out wide enough for one vehicle since we've run out of places to put the snow. I'm soooo ready for Spring!
