Okay, Here's it Is

Yeah, you've been wondering what progress has been made on Rainbow Cabin.  And sorry for the delay in showing you but must admit I didn't want to stop and take a picture even now.
My plans were and still are to use as many of my worms as possible. But we hookers know there has to be a flow and balance of texture, color and value.  

My first task was to hook the chimney which is to be stone and did use different colors from my worms.  

Since the background is dark that meant the chimney and roof needed to be lighter in value so did an outline around the chimney.  With the sides of my log cabin, as that would be next to dark background chose a great wool worm.  There were were 3 or 4 different wools used for the logs on the cabin.  But it required a special worm from my stash to put that light against the dark background on the sides.  

You will be very surprised what that wool is from Dorr .  It is #2011 Sage Green Gold.  There is a disclaimer there which says it cannot be ripped.  Well, yes it can if the cut is made in the right spot.  

As you can see the door and windows are not filled in yet.  I just wanted to keep on hooking.  And NO, the horse mats aren't fully bound yet either. BUT....did make a great pot of vegetable soup for tonight and a few days lunch and dinner. 

Enjoy your evening and please be kind to one another.



  1. Holy hell!!! You'll be done with that by the weekend.
    Hugs :)

  2. It's a great beginning and I love that Sage Green Gold wool. It looks like a very small rug or do I have the wrong perspective?

  3. You're cruising! This one is shaping up to be another winner

  4. Love how those shades look and always love mixing a few worms in to get some variation, yours work beautifully.
