Now I know you are going to laugh at me for this…but when gathering materials for my next Mystery rug and continuing to clean up and go through all my books, patterns, notebooks of drawings, fabrics, wools, etc. , I came across this little drawing from years ago! I was doing several snowman sketches at the time (I used another snowman sketch for my Seasons Banner that was a Blog rug earlier this year.) and planned to do this one as a wall piece about 18 x 18 inches. However, yesterday, it snowed here and I took it as a sign (!!!) that I was supposed to hook my Snow rug NOW…before doing my Mystery rug!!! And…to do it in the 24 x 24 format. 🙂
I’ve been asked what I’ll do with all these 24 x 24 rugs…and I will just hang them and change the ones I show from time to time. But after doing the Fraktur rug “A Golden Afternoon” (a rug that could be “Summer”)…I thought I could do a Winter, Autumn and Spring in the 24 x 24 size. They would be fun to change with the seasons!!!
So here we go on Day 1 of the “Snow” rug for “Winter”!! LOL
I am doing a lot of rugs at this time, as I am trying to use up a lot of my leftovers and small pieces of wool so I don’t have to move it when we take the next step in our lives!!! 🙂
As I’ve said before here on my Blog…Husband and I are downsizing and preparing ourselves and our house to make a change in our living arrangements! We have loved living here in our little 100-year-old + farmhouse down a country lane (on 3 1/2 acres) here in Vermont for over 20 years. But now that Joe is 80, it is harder to grow a big garden and keep up with the outside work. He is also restoring a 1929 Chevy in the barn!!!! So we hope at the end of this year or next year, we can find someone who will enjoy living here in the country as much as we have and sell our house to them. We will then get something that is easier for us to care for, both inside and outside. My studio upstairs is perfect for my business and would be great for a quilter, rug hooker, or other craftsperson. The barn has been Joe’s woodworking and antique car restoration “shop”…(the garage too) and we even have a little summerhouse tucked away in the trees. So that is why I am going through everything, getting rid of “stuff” (LOL) and hooking too!!!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 😉
