The OTHER side would be this Magdalena style piece being hooked now; the first side was a design by Betsy Reed (scroll down my blog to see that unfold). But the Magdalena Crow side isn't going fast enough for me. The unwanted snow is slowing me down since Ben can't handle a snow shovel and there's no one else here to do it but me and him.
Must admit that before posting this side was tempted to just keep on hooking until there was more accomplished on this side but thought better of that idea. And, was tempted to remove the penny circles then asked myself 'why'?
This it what it looked like last time I posted. If you look closely there were some sections pulled out and rehooked. Even now I'm not fond of the top left side. But hey, this is a primitive pillow for me and not a competition. Would Magdalena be so picky with her wool color choices or placement? I don't think so....she used what she had and that was it. For me, this was to be fun to use up nothing but woolie worms.
Hopefully after this side is hooked there will be a noticeable drop in the wool strip collection accumulated over the years. As much as I hate binding rugs and tend to let them mount up, I'm looking forward to showing you the Betsy Reed primitive cotton edge binding for this pillow. Actually there is a previous blog post about that so if you are in a hurry you can blog about the Betsy Reed Primitive binding technique and am sure it will take you to my blog or Betsy's.
Hope you all have heat, electric and water during this nasty winter. Although I hate the snow ~ having been without heat 6 days between the months of January and February figure that IF I have HEAT I can endure the damn snow.
A good way to keep warm, active and entertained is cover yourself with a hooking or quilting project. Be safe and have fun everyone. Oh..... and be kind to one another.
