I fell in love with a rug Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) posted on her blog HERE and knew it had to be on my frame next. If you are interested in buying the paper pattern click this link: Jack's Crow.
Yet, I'm marching to my own drum....first of all I'm using mostly all the ugly grey thin wool, using worms for the pumpkin head and star out of character and a blue moon.
Not only that but am using strips of wool with a blue stripe saved since working on a Polly Minick patriotic rug. It was a cream and blue windowpane design and saved the wool with the blue line. I'd always wanted to use that for a white striped jeans pants for a boy. Finally that has come to fruition.
After the rug is all hooked I might give the pants a spray of walnut dye to tone it down. But what I'm seeing here doesn't seem to need it. Must say this has been a slow and relaxing project...no muss, no fuss. Which is what I needed after the last storm and preparing for the remnants of Laura over the weekend.
My fish pond pump still needs to be replaced (waiting on my son), the ceiling fan and replacement TV need to be set up by my son but the fish pond is my concern before the water becomes stagnant. But he has a wife and son so they are his priority. Push come to shove I can always hire someone. HA, so guess husbands are good for something....IF they stick around.
Hope everyone stays save during this summer season's last hurrah of devastation from Laura.
