No, I haven't time travelled to the future, it is the name of the rug on my frame which was my camp project with Bev Conway. It was love at first sight because it gave me hope for 'the new year'.
The pattern reminded me of me in my cave for over 9 months and this bear has been in his tree cave for probably as long. This design would be a happy covid rug as a reminder of good things going forward because I did not want to hook a mask or a colorful covid germ. To me those are not happy motifs to hook. But this one, oh man, does it speak volumes to me on the future. Plus, my 'Buster the Bear' has a glass of cab in his hands to celebrate'. Yep, that's my boy's name....Buster. If you would like to purchase this pattern in either pdf or drawn on foundation you can find it HERE.
A story about the wine glass ~ which, by the way I think the glass shine should be removed between the thumb and the rest of the paw behind the glass, think the lighter color provides the idea of glass distortion. What say you Lynne?
To be continued on the glass... I know I've seen wonderful hooked pieces in narrow cut with a fishbowl and other reflective items and what 'to do' was running thru my mind one day while shopping at Walmart. All of a sudden I see a palate of boxes shrink-wrapped and when I saw that glistening shrink-wrap immediately though "wine glass". So pulled off a section of it and put it in my handbag.
Those snowflakes are salvaged white linen threads ~ you pull up a loop in a hole, pull up two ends in the next hole and pull into the loop to make a knot and snip off the top. Voila, easy peasy snowflakes.
I've still the Coleman lantern to figure out but have lots of background to hook as I ponder that part. Lindsay, Loris and Bev....if you read this, I'm having a BLAST hooking this fun design. Thank you.
