Okay, Okay, this is the antique beauty that I am hooking. While I am trying to stay true to the honesty of the original hooker I've taken a little creative license with the nest.
While I do understand that women used what they had at the time to create their wonderful works of what we now call folk art and wonderful part of history of making do, I'd like to add my creativity to make the nest look more like a nest. I believe the woman who hooked this before me would smile down and say, "good for you for having better resources than I had at the time". So this is what I have hooked thus far. Not much to show after so many days and I'll not get much hooking time in tomorrow either.
What I did learn about duck eggs is that they can be a combination of greenish, brownish, yellowish and whitish. The eggs were definitely fun to hook, BUT not nearly as much fun as I'll have hooking those ducky ducks and other leaves. Oh my but mama is having fun on the hooking frame!
Thanks for stopping by.
