Well, as usual I had a fun idea for a rug that I thought I’d do next…and I picked out a background wool that I wanted to use.
However…as I was spending a pleasant day just relaxing after Christmas, I was enjoying looking through my Art books, Quilt books, rug books, Stitchery books and looking online at ancient art, tapestries and mosaics!
And you know what happened…!!!!! I saw a little motif in the border of a large and ornate tapestry and all of a sudden an idea popped into my mind for a rug that I’d love to do! 🙂
So instead of the rug I was planning, I put away the background wool and started pulling out colours that I thought would be nice for this new design…(even thought I hadn’t really designed it all yet…!!!!)
I am drawing it on the linen this week and am excited to start on it. I think it will be about 24 x 40 inches.
So hang on to your hats…WTTPG is in the designing stage and I should be ready to go in a few days. In the meantime, Mrs. Smoth is still shaking her rolling pin at that noisy rooster in the picture at the top of this Blog…so if you hear any “nighttime noises”, you will know who to blame!
Happy Hooking and Happy New Year too. Sunnie 🙂
(PS…I will be doing some smaller seasonal rugs too as well as 12 x 12 pillows and other smaller hooked pieces! I am looking forward to a delightful year of rug hooking with lots of fun designs…!)
