I'd planned to have Merrie October (Lori Brechlin design) finished by now. But it has been 3 days since my last blog post so gave up trying and decided to post my progress anyway.
Am very pleased with my background. Someone asked me after my previous blog post what I'd planned for the background. This is a piece of wool I've had for a few years and never seemed right until now. And it is a perfect color and wool for this design and this holiday.
Kris Miller when she said usually she hooks lighter value leaves at the top and darker at the bottom. Hmm, maybe I should use light and dark green colors being used on the ground in those leaves.
FYI, the colors used for the climbing vines, Haus witch's hat and waist I used a piece of wool Kris picked out for me last September at Cape May. I needed something for the flowers at the curved bottom of Oh Glorious Day but didn't want colors to overpower the rest of the design. Kris and I went on a walking tour for wool from other teachers since she didn't think what she had left would work.
So you will know where it was used in Oh Glorious Day here is the finished photo. If you look between the green hill and the darker area at the bottom you will see shades of purple. That is from the same piece of wool.
Haven't heard contrary about the November rug camp so guess it is still a 'go'?. Have been in contact with a few of the attendees and we're all figuring out how we plan to navigate the class scenario.
All I know is that the over 6 months of being hunkered down and being non-social isn't healthy either. I am planning to attend rug camp, will follow health regulations and plan to continue living LIFE as best I can.
