A few things are getting close...... although I've not been hooking as much as I'd like (life sometimes gets in the way), it is getting close to sorta, kinda, almost done. Must say this Ducks and Egg Nest has been fun to hook and a different color palate than I normally hook. Mostly I prefer the more drab old looking vintage used rug, so this soft look with heathery leaves is probably why I loved it. It is different than I normally do but still in a wide cut (my fav). Most is hooked in #8.5 with some in #8.
Again, this rug is a little off from my normal old drab color palate. I love taking a class with Bev and she is great with whimsy and color so this will be right up her alley The pile to the upper left is the soft light variety of textures I dyed for the background and on top of that (the darker) is what I think may be used for the border. The brights will need to stand out beyond the background color but not sure Bev will choose any I'm taking. If not, I'll buy a fat quarter of whatever is needed to make the rug work. I've always been happy with the rug that comes out of a Bev class.
So...... back to Cape May, in a previous post I mentioned about the hooking on the front porch of the Chalefonte. Yes, there are classrooms, but after the initial start up and teachers make their rounds to the students to get them started...., those who wish, may go on the front porch and hook with the breeze, sunlight and the clip clop sound of horse drawn carriages taking people on tours. I find that sound rather soothing, particularly with the ocean breeze just two blocks away. Here is a picture of Cindi Gay with her class on the porch.
Thanks for visiting. Oh, and thanks for all the new Followers!!!! How great is that!!!
