Rush Hour!!!!!

I have to say....I loved this one.    I had more fun with this than any of them, I think!!  Our Madame Samm and Carol picked a real winner. Big thank you going out to them for their hard work.  My first piece shows what I think of when hearing 'rush hour'.

Another view....

again...LOL

This can be used as a table topper, but is meant to be a wall hanging.  Five o'clock is heavy traffic time in the city....everyone is getting off work, and in a rush to get home after a long day.  

I appliquéd the clock face on the background, and did the same with the letters, clock hands and little mice. I couldn't resist the Hickory Dickory effect...LOL. The numbers are done with fabric pen.

I have a second piece to share with you too.  Now this one means a lot to me, but it is a different take on 'rush hour'. As some of you know, we had an episode in our city on June 4 th that shocked all of us. A young man went on a shooting spree and killed 3 young RCMP officers, and wounded 2 more.
There were a number of hours where police from here and other areas searched for this man. The community was a huge help by co operating with police unti he was brought in.

This was a serious number of 'rush hours'.  This piece is something I made and donated to our detachment of RCMP which was directly involved in this. I delivered it to the detachment and was met with such thankfulness...I was amazed.


I found it such a coincidence that this line came out just at that time.  I was going to write the names of the fallen officers in the center, but decided to leave that up to the detachment.

I wish I had thought to take more pics of this one before giving it to them, but I didn't.

well, I hope you enjoyed my projects for this blog hop. thank you for visiting.  Now take a look at the rest of the people on today's list. Now.....look below the list of blogs for your giveaway....lol

I told him that it must be 5:00 somewhere! hehe Thanks for sharing your creations with us today!
