Because these are small pieces, there is not much “mystery” about them!!!!! I will be doing a larger rug later on…but Summertime is great for doing small pieces as there is so much to be done outside! …lol…
I am finally getting out of the Garden and back into my hooking Room!! 🙂
I said several months ago that I was going to do a number of 12 x 12 inch pieces…moments and memories…and I did 3 of them. Two mats and 1 pillow.
I am going to do several of this size in the next few months…and the first one is an experiment using a Pendleton plaid wool for the background. (I guess I am still in the garden…this wool hooks up looking like brown dirt…!!!) I also decided to use a lot of leftover woolworms!
I cut paper out for patterns to trace onto the backing and also found inspiration for the rooster motif from some old fraktur and sampler images. I first thought I’d use a light background with bright worms for both the rooster and the rose…but then decided to use a lot of leftovers of more unusual shades on that plaid background. It’s fun sorting through my worms to find softer colours and trying them out.
I am also doing a lot of “angles”…and not so many curves!!!! And…all the new wools I cut are #5 strips.
So here is the piece so far…thank you for visiting me!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
