Immediately upon waking up I had a thought ~ it's as if someone sent it to me. More on that later.....
April rug camp is moving in closer and had decided to hook "The Cousins". Here's the photo:
I advised my teacher Cindy Irwin this was my initial plan, would be hooked in most #8 with more narrow where needed. But confided I had concerns on getting a small green plaid for one skirt and blue plaid for the other.
A couple days later I wrote Cindy again saying I'd decided to hook the rug in sepia monochrome colors. I've never hooked a monochrome rug before and it seemed interesting. However did say that in case the project became too overwhelming (and camp is supposed to be fun) I'd take a back-up primitive small piece to hook.
So this morning it was as if my Mother was speaking to me from heaven. Was reminded of two photos I adorded; one with my mother and me on a bench and another when she was pregnant with me looking at a fishbowl.
This one would be a challenge because the photo is so old and have never hooked translucent water in a fishbowl.
Kept looking and didn't find the original photo of us in matching plaid skirts and perhaps it is in a photo album recently loaned to my brother. But in searching previously saved scanned photos did find this one with Mother and me on a dock. Actually this might be even nicer to hook than the other.
Now I've a question for you who dye wool....do you have a recipe for sepia?
You who are regular followers know I'm a fickle hooker so who knows what will go to camp with me. Before I decide I've some sketching to do but can promise there WILL be a back up 😁.
