It is a good thing I started pulling loops on this immediately, I know me; I'd have looked at it in October and say to myself, "nah, don't feeling hooking it after all". But guess what.....now I'm running out of steam or interest, whatever. Just surveyed the background wool that was married and some just didn't tone down enough so am wondering if there will be too much contrast in the background. But heck, seems like I'm quitting before breaking into a good sweat.
Guess it is time to put it aside for a week or so. Maybe I just need a break since just hooking the last row of balls in the last day and already bored so finding excuses. Not to worry, I won't quit and knew that was a reason for starting early.
THAT ~ Tonight I'll finish binding Mr. Cotton Tail. Yup, have drawn out my next project but don't have wool pulled for it yet. And, I've done a sketch for a hooked rectangular vessel to hold my Shadow girl's ashes but not on linen yet. After my last two Rotties passed (Shumba and Panzer) I had a local artisan make a box and paint their profiles on the box with their life dates. The artist is no longer here so Shadow has no decorative box to celebrate her life. She will have one soon tho.
AND the OTHER THING ~ While driving in the car with a talk radio show was listening to 'dirt doctor' who has a web site by the same name. Someone had called about clothes eating moths. We all know about washing our wool, not introducing used wool into the group until it is washed. We also know about lavender, cedar, etc.
Hey, I have a LOT of wool. There is no way that I pull out all my wool, unfold it, flip it over, take it outside in the sunshine, etc. So was interested in what this man had to say. He said there were clothes moth tents which could be used to attract moths. I've read it only attracts the males and not the female egg layers but hey, that would mean less males to help make eggs, right?
Even tho I have Sweet Annie in my wool room as well as lavender, I just purchased this product. There are other brands out there and was tempted by several. But since there was a deal with a spray as well as the hanging tents thought I'd go for this.
Hope you have a great evening.
