Lone Flower Update

This is my progress on Lone Flower using mostly worms.  Some of the #8.5 strips I've cut in half so am trying to use what colors I have.  Will cut only what I need and will look thru worms to find the colors I want first.

The mat is drawn 14 x 16.5 and put it on a loose weave linen so it would be soft and flexible like the soft burlap Carole Weatherman used.  Well, I never took a class from her but heard it was a soft/flexible burlap.
I'm not a packer anyway so its a struggle to hook a further distance from the last loop plus hook low.  I continue to reverse hook and try again without a lot of success.

I'm using the last of the Belgian linen so would like to draw something else on this piece to take advantage of as much space as possible.  Waste Not Want Not.  Hmm, sounds like a possible mat to me!!!!!
So before I trim off the section hooked will decide what to do next, draw it on the linen and hook all the space before any of them are bound.  Hey, sounds like a great excuse to put off binding don't ya think???

Today I was like the bulky sheep who was lost in the mountains and finally returned home and sheared.  Was never so happy to see my hairdresser as I was today ~ had a hair cut and my roots repaired.  Now if only for a tummy tuck and botox.  Not really, but would appreciate my 60 year old body a little more now that I'm even older.  Didn't realize that was as good as I was going to get 😁.

Think summer finally arrived today and think the A/C will officially be on from now till fall.  Happy Hump Day.

  1. The colors you have chosen are great together. This will be a nice simple rug. Sounds like a good plan to keep hooking aother one before cutting. Janice

  5. Hi Saundra,
    I love how your rug is looking and love the colors!! I know it can be frustrating when you are trying to achieve a certain look, but your rugs always look wonderful and just reflect your hooking style!!
    Happy you got your hair cut and feel more like yourself!!! That is always such a boost!!
    Using up the leftover linen is a great idea and I'm sure you will figure out the perfect piece!!!
    Hope you enjoy the day and like we, we have on our AC pretty much all the time now!! 111 today!!! You know where I will be!!!!!
    Heart Hugs~
