Thought I would show you the progress on 2 of the projects that I have going.
This is my own design. Everything is hooked but the background. The background of the rug is a flag. The difficulty that I am having is the dramatic difference in strip size. I believe I hooked some of the detail in a #3 and the background is a #9. I'm not sure where my height is suppose to be on my loops. The #9 cut overwhelmes the #3 cut, but I am moving forward......right or wrong. :)
"Woolens" is a new design we have in the shop. It was a quick and easy project. I hooked the sheep using 1 strip of wool and yarn. The yarn gave the sheep some interesting texture.
The legs, face and ear are hooked with leftover velvet that I had.
The background is a #9 cut.......my new favorite.
I apologize for the words going through the design. It is a little harder to see. I have been updating the web site and I have been trying to put our name on the pattern so it's not as easy to steal.
My dye pots are going this morning and while the wool is cooking I am headed to the studio to try and clean up a bit.
We have 2 big shows in April and I am working on drawing and dying so we will be ready to go. I would like to think I would be caught up but I know better than that!
