Canada Geese

This is a project I finished about 1-1/2 years ago for my husband's 65th birthday. We both love Canada geese and often take a ride on one of his motorcycles up the Natchez Trace on what we call a goose hunt. Late afternoon, we often see them feeding and sometimes with babies. We love the fact that they mate for life and when we see two, we will say, "there's a married couple" or in the case of odd numbers, an old bachelor. We've enjoyed this hand hooked pillowed and it is currently residing on our bed. Hooked in a size 4 cut of mostly hand dyed (by me) wool. The back and cording were dyed at the same time as most of the blue in the water. Lenny Feenan, The Burning Artist drew the pattern for me. It was a pleasure to hook.
