To me this is a total MESS! I'd like to think it as 'creative chaos' but in reality it changed from an organized grouping of wool worms (by color) and developed into CHAOS. Here is photo #1 where the worms are filling the spot where my handsome boy Ben would normally be looking at me with love in his eyes and guarding the yard.
Notice the gathering of mixed colors on the arm of the sofa as well as to the left where I'd fill that clean space. All those worms will multiply, then when the rug is done will need to be separated AGAIN to put in bags by color. Just for effect, here is a front view.
For over 10 years I went to Barb Carroll's rug camp and stayed on her lovely premises in one of the Ligonier cabins. That is until May 2016 when my ex husband couldn't come take care of Ben. I couldn't find a kennel in time so missed last year. Then Barb sold the property and our group decided it was time to end the delightful camp.
Long story short, I needed to fill my spring hooking habit. But my registration for Maryland Shores rug camp in April was sent too late so couldn't get into any classes. Told the camp organizer to put me on a waiting list and just Monday found out I'd gotten lucky. So now in a class taught by Eric Sandberg who is filling in for Norma. I've taken a class with Eric before so since he does color well.
As all of you know my color choices are earthy and am uncomfortable using bright colors. Therefore I'm taking a pattern which spoke to me but require colors not in my usual comfort zone. That camp will be in April and you will have a chance to see what that design will be.
Am sorry if you got bored by all this verbiage ~ guess I need to shorten my blog posts.
Hope you on the eastern shore have enjoyed these 60+ temperatures as things are about to get back to normal temps. The party is over.
