That happens a lot when the rug on my frame is almost all hooked. Remember the beautiful antique I named Red Bud? When push came to shove I nixed the idea of hooking it...for the time being. All that white hooking began to feel boring and I hadn't even started it.
Then thought of finally drawing a geometric to use some of these selvage edges of wool ~ a thought which comes to mind each time I'm in limbo.
Then I looked thru my pattern stash on linen, as opposed to the many paper patterns I've accumulated, and found a couple which interested me. One is a smaller version of Mary Comstock's Bed Rug.
Once Bird Dog is fully hooked I'll draw out my Granny Donaldson choice and fight the urge to start it. This is the design I've decided on except I will replace the camel with a horse. Am sure some of you are thinking it is an Alpaca or Lama, but even tho they are related to the camel neither of them have a hump.
Hopefully I'll choose something to hook and start it before giving in to that urge.
