Rosie Roo

As I continue my art quilt journey I am always in search of my next muse. Meet Rosie-Roo, the sweetest, shiniest Cane Corso you could ever hope to meet. This was my inspiration photo.

Just to challenge myself even more, I bought myself a Cricut and learned how to cut all the pieces electronically rather than by hand. Too many years of being an IT geek have left my hands and wrists in pretty bad shape.

I did a lot of thread painting to not only enhance the portrait but to also help blend all the different values of red together.

I surprised Rosie’s Mom this morning when I delivered the quilt. There were tears and hugs. A few weeks ago I had asked her what her favourite colours were but she had no idea why I asked or what I was doing.
