The tentative name of my new design is called Spring is Here. Here is a pile of wool that I cut in preparation for hooking it.
Several days ago I posted about being inspired by a lovely pink and brown antique baby quilt. Well, those colors are flowing into this design. A lot of light and neutral background, and pinks and browns, reds, light blues, and grays. I have finished a bird and am laying out a red border for it. My goal is to suggest a bird, keeping the details very sketchy and simple, but yet giving each one personality. I am being very painterly, using wool loops like brush strokes.
I had to dig into my neutrals bag of worms so that I could expand on my selection of the color brown. There are so many kinds of brown! I am enjoying delving into this bag of subtle color. It has taken over my table, gotten into my cup of tea, and is seeming to grow even though I am taking from it.
I can tell that I will be glued to my frame for a while, as I am very happily immersed in the creative process. But I had to pull myself away to touch base with you.
I hope you are happily creating today too ~ Karen
