Dang if I know! But I'd better make up my mind soon before the sheep is finished. Just hate not having something ready immediately to put on my frame. Soon will begin the binding process on A Day in the Country and will do that in stages since it isn't my favorite part of hooking.
Although I have 28..YES....28 patterns drawn on linen in my stash there's surely something there to interest me. Yet, I'm still thinking about this antique small since there is a spot on the wall just for a small size.
Tis true I have the small primitive cat mat I recently hooked which would fit perfectly in that spot. But for some reason a horse is calling me. I'd even thought about this antique horse below. But like the idea of a dark animal motif and the shape of the one above is more to my liking.
Woolley Fox's Olde Hearts pattern and with Valentines Day coming in February thought it might be fun to hook hearts. Plus, I've the master patterns for the hearts designs Polly Minick did in her last book so could hook those.
However, yesterday I went to my 'show container' where I store the rugs and mats which didn't sell when doing shows. A couple were listed on etsy and found one which needs a little tweaking before I list it. It is a small mat so won't take much work... that may be my next immediate project. You'll have to wait until later to see the before and after.
Meanwhile, this is my sheep and I'm in love with it. Of course it is always the one I'm working on that is my favorite. Okay, okay, thats a lie, lol. There have been hooking projects which were shear torture for me to work on. But most are heavenly.
