This is Betsy's Crow pattern I purchased last November when attending her class. Looking at this piece think I'll pull out the orange above the head of the crow.....uh, but would replace it with what color? Maybe dulled gold.
Was hoping to use more dull colors on this side with the patchwork hooked background and use a combination on the other side for that crow using whatever Magdalena would have used.
Okay, am showing you the mess I make just around the area where I hook. In front of that pillow is where the hooking takes place. To my right (your left) at that space is some mess and mingled wool.
It may look organized to you but to MY left these were the worm baggies from which my loops are pulled and they are getting mingled together fast. However...... I AM using up a lot of worms on this pillow and enjoying every loop pulled.On the far right in the photo above is the reverse side of the 'to be pillow' with Betsy's Crow on one side and the Magdalena style crow for the other.
Hope to have some progress to show you next time I post. If not it may be another rug show.
Hugs to all, try and stay warm. In addition to the frigid temps and wind we are to endure snow now. At this point I think those challenges can be okay with me as long as there is heat in the house.
Please bring your pets inside. If you know anyone or has seen anyone who keeps their pet outside for hours on end in these frigid temperatures, PLEASE call the authorities. No animal should be allowed to be left outside by it's owner for lengths of time.
Hope you all are warm and safe.
