My Camp Rug....Finally

Yeah, I know you are all anxious to see what I hooked and while it isn't finished, did want to get more hooked beyond what was accomplished at Cape May.  

That said, since being home I've had a couple very large patterns to draw for someone not to mention the normal un-fun duties to perform when returning from having all that fun.  So here ya go.
There's so much to talk about this design and hope I don't forget anything.  First, my teacher was Kris Miller and this is a design offered by Spruce Ridge Studios from the art work of Lori Brechlin named Do Goode Be Nice.  

So, let me tell you about my journey hooking the pattern.  Must admit I was concerned hooking the witches hand/fingers and also considered not hooking the words, particularly the "Be Good" word bubble.  But Kris gave me the confidence and suggestions to pull it off.  And pull it off I did.  Kris even said (with tongue in cheek)...."you nailed it!" referring to the dark red fingernails of the uptown Goode Witch.

The green wool for the witch face was purchased last year at Cape May from Kris when I was searching for the perfect wool for this pattern so saved it and took it back to Cape May.

For my Goode Witch's hair I chose red.  Reason is that was the wool hooked on the witch in Nantucket Broom Ride which was part of a 'get well' card/package sent me by my friend Barb Carroll.  Here is Nantucket Broom Ride for those who may have missed my previous posting about this time last year.  Thanks Barb, cannot imagine a witch with any other color hair now.
Nantucket Broom Ride is another pattern offered by Spruce Ridge Studios and from the artwork of Lori Brechlin.

Okay, back to hooking on the Goode Witch as I'm excited to have it finished and used in October on my harvest table.

Have a great evening, please be kind to one another and happy hooking.
