Binding, Hooking and Planning

I've steamed Golden (Rottweiler) in the Garden and am whipping the edge with yarn.  Love the yarn since it is variegated and all the colors used in the rug.  Will show you the yarn and the  job when it is done or close to done.

When I get bored doing that during the day then I pull a few loops on Lady the Donkey which will be done soon.  Will show you a photo of her too, when closer to finish line.

I'm attending a rug camp early November and will take an antique adaptation but not sure which one yet.  Whatever I take will need to be drawn so am contemplating which to draw.  

Meantime I will keep myself entertained (after the binding and Lady is done), hooking this 6 Horse and Hearts rug purchased for a great price last year at Cape May.
You can see it's a deal at $38 on linen for this 22 x 38 rug.  Since the purchase I've learned it was a Marion Hamm design which originally had 8 horses.  It was published in a craft book free to draw.  

Whoever drew this one did draw the perimeter lines on the straight of grain (thankfully) but the hearts encroached the backs or necks of the horses.  So I've taken liberty to change the hearts.

Should be fun to make each of the horses a different color from my worm bags and will have a primitive black background.  

Feels like fall will be in the air soon, or at least it is tonight.    TGIF.
