Well I’ve had a good rest, designed a new rug and am ready to go!!! 🙂 I miss my cat, Cassie, very much but she had a great long life and I’ll do a rug of her one of these days too!!! Thank you for the nice comments about her and my “memories” rug!
“LOVE’S MEMORIES” RUG…..I will show the completed “Love’s Memories” rug after this next weekend as I’m going to finish the right side border circles (using leftover woolworms!) at the hook-in…”Hookity-Do Dah”…this weekend!!! A perfect place to have fun with others who love rug hooking and add those scrappy circles to finish the rug! 🙂 ____________________________________________________******************* This NEW DESIGN is a blending (I hope!!!!!) of a drawing that I started a couple of years ago and then put away without finishing it. When looking at the “Zentangle” (registered name) drawings online and on Pinterest and seeing the other “creative doodles” people were doing, I thought I could pull out that older design, change some of it, add creative doodles and make a rug!!! A delightful experiment…Hooray!!!!!
I’m also trying to use some of my small pieces of wool that fray easily!!!!! …lol… You can see that in this photo! This will be easy for you to get the “drift” of the design as I go along…so it won’t be a complete mystery. It’s a larger rug too…about 28 inches by 52 inches. I just kept doodling!!!!!
Those of you who are members of Rug Hooking Daily know that we just had a discussion of starting a rug and just doing what you feel like doing, filling up the rug as you go…so although I have drawn the “guide design” on my backing, I will be redesigning and changing as I go!
Also, I have pulled out as many of my blue wools as possible…plaids, hand-dyed wools and mill-dyed wool to use in this piece…It’ll be fun…I just know it.
