TA DAH! Drum roll, please! LOL My “Mystery rug” is no Mystery any more!
Pulled the last loops last night and am steaming this morning (steaming #4)…so this was a fast rug to hook! Normally, this would probably take me about three weeks or so…but I had a couple of days where I had 6-8 hours to hook, so that moved things along! 🙂
As I said, I will be hooking three more of these, Summer, Autumn, and Winter and will show my progress as I go along. I’ll just show parts of the rug but you know that it will be my “altered self” engaging in some form of activity for these Seasons! I am already laughing…so you know they will have a funny side!!! 🙂
There are some things that would not be obvious in this rug to anyone but me as you’d have to know that, as the figure is shown with a black background going into blue, I was born on the longest night of the year…Dec. 21st. so that is symbolic! Also (why are you not surprised!!!) when I was a teen-ager, I enjoyed experimenting with my clothing…putting different patterns and colours together…so that is why this dress has such different parts and patterns! (No, this is not one that I wore then!!!!!) LOL
I hope you enjoy my “hooked alter self” as much as I enjoyed doing her!! I wanted to illustrate the person who lives here, someone slightly goofy, with a sense of humor and a fun way of looking at the world! I hope I succeeded…and hope it will give a chuckle to those who know me and those who don’t..!! LOL 🙂 Of course, my hint of I O T N…means Introduce Ourselves To Neighbors…something we do when we move.
Here we go…Day 13/FINISH…
