To my followers I wish all of you have a happy and healthy New Year. For America I pray for a safer way of life for all of us on our streets, towns and cities.
I will welcome the new year in as usual, behind closed eyes.
As much as I hate for this "forever floral" to be the first rug shown it was the first rug hooked in 2023 so must start with it. It was given that name because it seemed to take forever to finish the damn thing.
Also on my frame was an antique star rug which was fun and will be something to display during patriotic holidays. It started as my 'plus one' and something to hook while deciding on what to do next. Must say it was a LOT of fun.
Sadly my sheep who lost its way won't be finished this year. She will be the first one finished in 2024 tho. It was started in November and most all wool in the sheep was removed and rehooked as well as what was hooked of the purple border. This photo is the first time I've looked at it on my pc in weeks.
Lauren, I miss quoted the dimensions, it is 26 x 40. Not sure what I'll do with that snake looking area below but in the original antique it is a very light color and I don't want that.
For me and those who can't remember what the antique looked like, here it is for comparison. The outer border in the antique is light and I made mine dark and added it to the already dark ~ that's why my black border is so large.
