Broom Ride is Back

I accomplished a little more on the background and finished the moon. If you scroll down to my previous post of the design you can see the sliver moon has an eye with a pupil.  I've only seen one other hooked Nantucket Broom Ride and the gal did a fantastic job outlining the eye and hooking in the pupil.  I tried and mine looked messy and like an alien.  
Just one try at the eye and decided to just hook a slit of an eye and I like it,, I love it.  The moon looks like it's taking a nap.  In retrospect I should have put the mustard colored house in the middle and the red house on the right.  Oh case you're wondering ~ nope, won't pull them out and rehook, lol.

You will eventually see changes in the witch to come and am hooking my way over there.  Think I'll frame the design first and then will work my way up from the unhooked tree.  It really is better (I think) to see how something is working if there is more hooking done.

In case you missed the information before, this is a pattern offered by Spruce Ridge Studios and based on a design by Lori Brechlin.  

Should you be wondering, my arm is less red and less swollen but not totally healed yet.  There are still more antibiotics to take too so am hoping by Tuesday I'll be good.  If not my primary care physician game me a prescription to go the 10 days of antibiotics rather than the 7 days of prescription the urgent care gave me.

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone.



  1. It looks great to me. I love this pattern but I have so many other things I want to hook first. When I retire I will hook until my hearts content.
    I hope.

  2. The rug looks lovely. You always do a great job.
    If the house color bothers you., it would be easy to re-hook two houses but it's such a minor detail.

    Sometimes I think I should buy some nice colored markers and color pieces of paper shapes to see how they would look hooked but I never did buy them.

    You had a serious infection and I think it would be best to tale the 10 day of antibiotic just to make sure it cleared up totally.

    Take care,

  3. Enjoy seeing the progress of the rug. I like the moons eye too. Glad to hear your arm is healing.

  4. The moon is just perfect.
    You are just a hooking machine.
    Hugs :)

  5. It looks gorgeous to me. Even the witch, although it's stressing you. Happy the arm is healing.
