Oh what fun it was to hook this rug. It was started November 9th at rug camp with Bev Conway as my teacher.
The alarm clock on that bookcase is a button from my stash from when I made dolls. Works well, dont'cha think?
And, one day when walking thru Walmart before rug camp was wondering how the heck to hook the wine glass. All of a sudden I saw a huge palate of boxes with shrink wrap. AH HA!!!! A lightbulb went off so ripped off a piece, stuck it in my pocket and packed it with my wool for camp. Wasn't sure how it would work and had to be careful to not place the iron on that part when steaming the rug. But it sure gives it a shine like a wine glass.
There's more...see the bear's scarf? Notice the end has a tassel look to it? Something so simple yet it took my teacher to show me how to make it. She said when I got to the end of the scarf to leave at least 1" of end sticking up. Then Bev came over with a T-pin and plucked out the weft section of the strips to leave just the warp. Ingenious yet so simple. Thanks Bev.
This design was fun to hook on so many levels ~ first it is looking forward to the new year, get thoughts of Covid 19 out of my head, and hopefully looking forward to a happier and more peaceful new year. If you would like to hook this design too visit The Wool Farm and purchase yours today.
