Happy Monday! With only a little time to hook yesterday I did manage to finish the Autumn Block! Hooray! ; )
So two blocks down, two to go!!!
Just a note…When doing something like this, a long narrow piece or a small piece with a center and a border, I almost always steam the finished part before going on to the next part or to the border. For me, it just makes the hooking easier and I can see if I need to fix something that is not hooked at the same height or needs adjustment. Maybe it’s just a quirk of mine! 🙂
Just a note…when visiting Gene Shepherd’s blog today (see my Blog list ) I saw that he had a great picture of his light table! I love my light table for transferring patterns to linen backing and I thought you might like to see mine. It is not as sophisticated as Gene’s (!!!) but it works great for me! Here it is…
It is a cheap table that I bought on sale. I asked my husband to cut out the center, put in some supports and then put a piece of plexiglass in the middle. (glass might have been too heavy and too expensive for me) ….. I then used a little pine bench underneath and used three clip-on lights, also not expensive. The table is good for holding my three cutters too…I use the cutters more than I use the light table, so it is a multi-purpose item! I can also lay out wools on it, sort things, and I lean a covered board against it to sit back and look at my work from a distance!! : ) Hope this helps if you want to do a light table for yourself.
I’m off to more bookwork! Happy Hooking! Sunnie 😉
