Pulled the last loop on Horse and Scrolls this afternoon and now the dreaded binding process needs to be done. Heck, I'm still not finished whipping the edge of Over the Moon which has been hooked for some time. But at least there's only one other in the 'un-bound' pile.
The photo which follows was taken with a flash inside the house and the background looks brown but it isn't that brown but more of a heathery black. Sure wish my digital camera took better photos but am not going to invest in another.
This photo is taken on my back porch in natural light without a flash and it shows more of the primitive black color although the rug isn't quite THAT black. Suffice it to say the real color is somewhere in-between.
Okay, soon I'll be in a frenzy with nothing new to put on my frame. Despite my friend Lauren's claims I don't always plan ahead. BUT!!!!!! I have been thinking.
Since I've been donating a lot of fabric to the thrift shop got looking at some of the cottons thinking..."that would look great as a flower", or that would be a great...whatever.
In all the antique rugs posted on my blog, whenever there has been a close up of the textiles I've posted on the rugs, those photos show many were hooked with cottons, knits nylon stockings and whatever they used to MAKE DO.
So was considering providing a free small project for anyone who wished to join in and use whatever you have ~ homespun, silk, flannel shirts, socks, red long johns, tee shirts, etc. It would have to be small for me to keep my interest but you could make yours whatever size you desire.
My thoughts would be SMALL, maybe an animal, a single flower, log cabin, etc. But SMALL. Did I mention small, lol. Because you all know I get bored easily. Give me your thoughts and maybe I'll do a couple line drawings and we can decide which one to challenge ourselves with.
