Thanks for stopping by today. Here’s a comfy chair for you to sit in with me by the garden window in my studio. I am working on finishing my latest hooked rug. Undoubtedly you have a project to work on, so let’s enjoy some hooking time. What project are you working on?
Speaking of worms, there are some in my design! Each one is hooked using a variegated hand dye or marbleized strip of wool. The background is filled with different browns which I blend together to get a mottled look. I love all of the slight changes in color that makes a background fun to hook.
I am always excited to finish a project and to see the completion of my dream. There is always some tweaking that happens after everything is hooked. The tweaks are a very important part of the process. A few changes can make a huge difference in the overall effect. This design will be for next year’s catalog. I am giving you some edges and angles, but I will only let you see it all in January of 2013. Or whenever I finish the catalog!
Thanks for joining me ~ Karen
