I think the reason I have felt a little out of sorts lately is that I don't have a current project. I did finish the hooking part of the funky flower a few weeks ago but still haven't gotten around to finishing the edges. I hate that part. And I think it is safe to say that no hooker (rug hooker) has ever gotten their mojo back finishing old projects!
I asked you for some advice for the corner part a few weeks ago and I got many great options. So I took a bit of all of the suggestions and this is what I ended up with. This is a Deanne Fitzpatrick design "fresh daisy" which I tweeked a tiny bit.
Even though I have been busier than a one armed paper hanger, I need to have a project. Even if I only get to work on it for a few minutes a night, it relaxes me to feel the wool and pull a few loops. It was yesterday when I realized what was missing so shopping I went, with a tiny germ of an idea for a simple project.
This is my "treat bag" of goodies that will comprise the next hooking project.
And some of the yarns. I love working with the slub yarn on the right side and that ball in the middle has big hairy chunks all through it. FUN.....
Now its time to draw out this little idea on the burlap. I'll keep you posted.
And a special welcome to Annie, my newest follower. It has been awhile since I've had a new one - I was starting to think my follow button was broken. Lol
