Recently I drew out a Domestic Zoo pattern for Denise and thought I'd post photos of various hookers' color choices, they're all lovely. I'll start with the one I hooked and my colors were chosen to replicate those which were in the original antique. FYI, the dimensions of this pattern are 22.5 X 66.
This next one was hooked by Jeni Nunnally.
Susan Traughber has hooked several Magdalena designs and hooked this Domestic Zoo as well. I love that cat on the left!
Another rendition of Domestic Zoo was hooked by Karen Schoenrock.
This Domestic Zoo below was hooked by Julie Jewell, notice she added a border around.
In other news.....thankfully my kind neighbor came to my rescue again to see why my riding mower wouldn't move. He looked underneatg and noticed the drive belt was off.
Then he said, "in a minute we'll know why it came off". He removed the battery so he could get a visual of the pully. Would you believe two gum balls were tangled up in the pully and that's what threw the belt off. Was able to get the grass cut....finally.
Remember this massive pile?
The small stuff has been moved deep into the woods and all that remains are the logs. Am planning to move some of the limbs/trunks which I can pick up when the drizzle stops and I've time. It is still cloudy temps only reached 65 today and it drizzled on and off.
FYI ~ Jennie recently informed me that she finally figured out that she can comment on my posts from her laptop but not on her mobile devices. So if you have had a problem commenting and wish to do so perhaps you should use your laptop or PC.
I'm still slowly pulling loops on the monochromatic floral but want to pull Mother and Fishbowl out and fix her shoulder....soon. And very soon will be chomping at the bit to put something new on the frame. Happy hooking.
