Sea World and my Primitive Rug

Color inspiration
 How  crazy am I. I was eating Jacks birthday cake and noticed
that the cake was chocolate
 and the ice cream was a pretty purple
The dark of the cake contrasted
 with the ice cream great! 
I am going to try to put a dark brown
 in the lettering since the purple lettering does not pop!

Summer is flying by!
Last Sunday we went to Sea world again. It’s great having passes we don’t have to rush around and frantically go to one show after another.   After meeting up with my daughters family we walked around the park. Here are some pictures I took of the day and how I am progressing on my Egg and I Rug. Once again I started with a pattern and then changed it to make it more personal.

I am a color fanatic now because of rug hooking.I am even more so aware of colors in nature

That's how I felt after eating birthday cake all week!

I think I am like that flamingo with it's head in the water.
                                        I am in my own little world while
                                        everyone else is looking around.

                                 I wonder how the flamingo's like a roller coaster next to them

                                                                     Tide pools

                                                      Little Jack making friends at Sea World

This was the Sesame street area for little kids 

                                                             Little kids in motion

                                   These birds like to steal the fish when your feeding the seals 
                                       It was a fun day! This week flew by ...

                                                                A star fish Rug?

                                                               Have a nice weekend , Cheri

Oh those kids were definitely having a great time. Thanks for letting me visit Sea World with you and I didn't need to put up with the crowds and didn't even need a pass.

Love how your rug is coming along.

Great pics! LOVE the flamingos :)
Jack is just is as cute as can be and looks like he had a great time.
Yes, summer is flying by :( Even with our sweltering heat, I prefer summer over winter any day of the week.
Hugs :)

I giggled because it's so true - hookers see color matches and future rug designs everywhere. Love the pics in this post. Jack looks like he had a blast with all those kiddies. The starfish colors are fun. I've never seen any that color before.
