This has been the longest I've been absent from posting unless I was at a rug camp and couldn't post from iPad. My usual excuse from lack of hooking is due to yard work. This time it is a combination part yard work, 3 different doctor appointments, a day caring for a neighbor's dog, laundry and misc. administrative crap.
I thought after retiring my administrative duties were over. Ha! After retirement it becomes administrative duties for accruing doctors, making appointments, visiting those appointments, scheduling misc. home-ownership work to be done and balancing my check book again. Anyway.....
Here is what Stars and Diamonds looks like now. I drew mine to 21 x 43. The yellow between the diamonds really isn't that orange. And that white 'blip' below the second diamond is a loose end which hasn't been clipped yet.
My hooker and blogger friend Pam Gunn has hooked this design too. Will eventually share her masterpiece with you. I sometimes view her rug and check to see how she hooked a certain area. Then remind myself I'm trying to replicate the antique using what I have.....not what she had.
That said..... that sweet woman shared a piece of wool with me she used in her rug. How very generous and unselflesh can a hooker be?
Here on the eastern shore "the heat is on". It is in the upper 90's with high humidity making the 'feels like' over 100.
Happy Monday, Saundra
