With the all the extra time
I’ve been hooking away on my 1840’s rug
(Lucy dog is in the upper left holding it down.)
The farm motifs include a horse, chicken, goat, and cat
as well as fence posts coming from both sides
of the centre log cabin.
The plan is to highlight the animal motifs
with radiating outlines so they do not get “lost.”
I’m hooking in a hand cut #8 as my cutter has not
(shout out to Bolivar to move along faster).
The size of the rug?
I’m not sure as I drew it out on a leftover chunk.
I like the inviting light in the windows.
Doesn’t it look safe and cozy?
Our Evening Matters rug hooking guild
had pins made to celebrate 25 years.
See the “hooker” under the lamp post?
Because our group is taking an isolation hiatus,
we are sending each other photos of rug progress as
well as hooking questions.
Speaking of isolation, isolate in body only.
Please reach out to neighbors and friends and family
and connect— both for your mental health and their’s.
Even here in eastern Canada the air is feeling spring-y
and the snows and ice are melting!!!!
