Headway on Hannah

Well, make that a 'wee' bit of headway on Hannah.  I pulled  some loops in strategic places to see what it may look like and if I should proceed with my initial plan.  That plan was using the lighter wool.  Yup, I like the lighter.
For those of you liking the goldish wool, I really did pull some loops but it didn't really do it for me.  Plus the fact it was too close in value to the greens I'm using.  Look how close the light is.  Why the heck does the photo do that wiggly grainy look on the linen when I take a higher pixel picture????  Let's see if this photo is better using a different setting.
Ah, that's better.  My plan is to do a darker green ground (the darkest you see on the rug) but use the lighter green at the top.  Dang, it is a green that Betsy sells and I forget the name.  I'll check the names out and let you know in a future post.

And thank God in my area we are supposed to get only between 3-5" of snow.  Hey, wind and temperature changes could alter that too since the upper part of Delaware is getting much more.  At Least, thankfully, I've heat this week.  That is unless the unthinkable happens and we lose power due to snow situations.

Lauren, I feel for you since you need to not only drive to work but must deal with unhappy people who haven't gotten plowed out yet.

Hope everyone is safe and has as good an evening as possible.  Find your batteries and be sure to have them handy for flash lights.



  1. Betsy sells a pretty green plaid called Kermit, I cannot tell by the picture if that is it. I am glad you have a new furnace to stay warm.

  2. Aw, gee. Thanks for thinking of me. We probably only got 2"-3" of snow and the guys plowed all night so it was a very quiet day phone-wise. They have taken away my "call-outs" so this winter is nothing like last but it really hurts in the wallet. I am NOT a happy camper. I've been screwed and not even!
    Hannah is looking wonderful. I like the lighter wool.
    I hope the storm misses you, too.
    Hugs :)

  3. It does make more sense, I usually do the lighter shade for a background and darker shades for movement.


  4. See, I told you I knew nothing about primitive rug hooking. So it does look better with the lighter background. lauren was right on. No wonder she's a hooking wonder like you Saundra.

    We're waiting to get blasted by the big snow storm too so I'm hoping that i'll be able to see my way to the barn in the morning.

    Stay safe and warm.


  5. Hannah is lookin fine.. Hope you aren't getting. Uriel with snow. Stay warm and safe.
