The last loop was pulled on this one-of-a-kind Monochromatic Floral last evening and steamed this morning. This is the first rug I've ever hooked with the intentions of selling it. The rug was fun to hook and it was designed as I hooked. The inspiration was the color of Cindy's overdyed wool at camp ~ it kept nagging at me and just had to buy that wool and tackle that challenge.
After steaming the rug I went outside to move a few more logs. Remember this photo? This photo was taken March 28th soon after my brother made a visit to saw down the toppled trees from the heavy snow storm.
Yesterday afternoon I went outside and noticed my male turtle was still in the area 24 hours later. Although it does appear he had moved a little to the left, you can see the divot in the leaves just to the right where he'd been previously.However, a storm came thru with some areas near here getting golf ball and baseball size hail stones. No hail stones here thankfully so after the storm passed (about 7 p.m.) I went out again and Mr. Turtle had left that area. Don't know where he is but am sure he's about somewhere so will, as always, be cautious when cutting grass.
Finally today I cut linen and started drawing a pattern for someone but just had to take a break from it. When an antique rug is photographed at an angle the dimensions are not equal. It requires a lot of concentration to transfer it properly onto linen. Tomorrow I'll continue to work on it but needed a break.
