It won't be too much longer before the hooking will be done and I can move onto another project. The decision has been made between a Granny Donaldson or a Magdalena design. Magdalena won out as the first to hook with Granny following after January 1st.
Reason for the delay in Granny is because two blogger friends say they wanted to join me ~ Sheila and Lauren said they'd like to join in on the fun but Lauren cannot do it until after the new year because of other commitments. Sheila loves primitive and previously hooked a Granny Donaldson rug pattern from Woolley Fox.
If you would like to participate in the fun of hooking the simplicity of a Granny Donaldson design too, you can check out the various Granny Designs HERE. You can draw it any size and if you don't draw your own designs you can check out Woolley Fox or if you tell me which one you prefer and what size I can draw it for you. It would be drawn on Dorr natural primitive linen with serged edges and price would be determined by size.
Have been spending about half an hour daily now whipping the edge of Stacked Birds ~ hey hate binding and that's about all l can tolerate at a time. So before the horse is finished so should the whipping task. After the whipping is done I'll draw out the Magdalena rug I chose to hook....which is Bird Dog.
After studying the face on Bird Dog to determine how I'd draw the face I compared it to the similar rug Magdalena hooked (below). It looks as tho it might be an ear on the right side with a white tip on the dog above. If so it would give the face and muzzle a little better shape.
Happy hooking and unhappy yard work, 😄.
