My log cabin rug

The rush for patterns to be drawn and dolls to be made and shipped has eased up a little so can sit and relax and hook.  I should be cleaning but hey, that dust and dog hair will still be there tomorrow, right?

Decided to move my rug on the frame so decided to take a picture.  Actually took two pictures with two different settings. 

And, while it was off the frame thought I'd better find out if I have enough of the background wool and see if I needed to order more. Oh no, say it isn't so.  Since I'm hooking in #8.5 folded the wool over 5 layers and it doesn't look like I'll have enough to do the entire background. 

Okay, then I went back 3 years worth of Betsy wool samples and 3 years of Rebecca samples so that I could order more.  Oh no, say it isn't so...... I couldn't find that wool in their samples whatsoever.  Now I'm wondering if it was a yard I'd purchased on sale at Woolley Fox when I was there... and it could have been.  It's a dark dark navy texture with little lines of a grey and tan in places.So what I plan to do is keep hooking and if I do run out then I'll just have to pull out wool in various places and fill in with something close.

Dont'cha just hate it when that happens?

  2. Hi Saundra,I love log cabins. It's looking wondeful. I always run out of wool. I am almost done with my turkey. Yea!

  3. Loving the rug! Isn't running out of wool part of the whole rug hooking mystique? LOL
