My interests have an ebb and flow and have been known to take a hard right hand turn at times. So here are a few other rugs I've hooked which may also be out of my norm. One such is called "Flying Trio" by Red Salt Box but didn't find a link.
Brenda Gervais named Herb Angel. The reason there are two photos of it is because the top one with a flash is too bright and the one without a flash too dark. So the real colors are somewhere between the two.
After teaching myself to hook decided to take a camp ~ it was one hour away from my house and the same one I'm going to Sunday. Wanted to break bad habits and learn how to hook properly.
At that time it was strickly a McGowan camp and no ousider patterns could be used. So patterns had to be chosen either from McGowan patterns or from Charco designs.
Since I'd never dyed wool and no clue about color planning chose two Charco designs and had Mary Lou color plan them and I purchased the wool.
Plans were to take ONLY one rug camp so told her I WOULD hook in #8 cut and was hoping she could teach me about shading a leaf with wide strips. Bless her heart, Mary Lou Bleakley was my teacher and this was the design hooked with her. She did an awesome job preparing a novice hooker and teaching I think. When we meet we still banter back and forth about narrow cut vs. wide cut.
Okay kids, I've run out of steam and still much to do. Plus I'm exhausted from lack of sleep overnight, headache since last night and just not feeling right.
Stop back again. Hope everyone enjoyed that summer weather today as it was probably the last.... and in NOVEMBER yet!!!
