I've started the binding process on Over the Moon. This time I'll whip the edge with black wool yarn. I do it in a two-step process ~ wellll, maybe you'd call it a three-step process. I roll the foundation forward, clip then whip with a heavy cotton thread and then do the final whipping with wool yarn. Although it might seem double/triple work it makes it easier for me and have a more consistent edge after the whipping.
Don't you just love those little clips?? Those were purchased a few years ago from a fabric store along the quilting wall. But am sure you could find them on-line too.
Good news for me.... I sold a sizeable Magdalena Goat hooked rug listed on a Facebook page. Didn't get the price it should be valued at but a price I'm happy with.
After I first discovered the Magdalena Goat on an auction site I saved a photo and kept track of the auction prices. Magdalena's family said there was a Goat rug but it had never been discovered until 2017. It was fun to watch the incremental increase in price slowly until someone knew it WAS a Magdalena Briner Eby rug. Then the price sky rocketed immediately. This is the rug which I hooked and just sold; hooked it Magdalena's original size of 29 x 35, with the wool whipped edge it was a tad bigger.
Also hooked it in a smaller size and different colors to give folks a choice of colors to think about when buying a pattern, this one I kept and have on my wall.
And, just so you know, there is a new pattern on my frame.
OOPS, you can't tell what I'm working on? Oh dear...guess you'll have to wait until I have more hooked for you to see what it is 😁 .
Another rainy day in Delaware. Please Santa, bring me a boat.
