Well, I have had a nice rest…and thank goodness for resting too! The temps here in Oregon around the Portland area have been sizzling!!!! I’m so glad I got the mermaid finished in time…throwing that large rug around or having it on my lap (even with air conditioning!!!!) would be really tiring!!!! (Now, I can just look at all that blue “water” and find it refreshing.) 🙂
However, while I work on getting my patterns ready to go, I wanted to hook on something a bit smaller.
I have found a lot of Halloween and harvest-themed sketches in my “ideas” notebooks and thought I’d do another Halloween theme that I think will be fun! I’ll also offer a pattern for the new rug and I won’t have to go through all the steps I’ve been doing to get the other patterns ready to go!
Because I no longer have the patterns I used on almost every one of my rugs (remember, I tape copy paper together and transfer my own designs…and then change them along the way!!!) Even if I have the paper pattern, it is so changed and garbled that I can’t use it for anyone else.
I have to photograph the rug if I still have it OR go to my computer and search for the photo (if I still have one!!!) draw the pattern from the photo and then draw it again to refine it and get it printed…!! Whew!!! …lol…
I simply recycle, reuse or shred my previous patterns or I would be awash in paper!!!
Anyway…I am involved with a couple of other projects right now too, as well as the pattern project, but I want to start my new rug towards the end of next week. I miss my hooking!!!! 🙂
So I’ll be excited to do this new design because I think it would make a fun smaller wall piece or table rug…or a banner for inside or outside the front door.
See you next week…Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
