This past weekend I drew “SNOW” on backing, but I am not hooking it just yet. I am not sure of the figure placement in the rug yet. I may do something different with it. I found a couple other rugs designs on backing that I am going to hook first…or at least try.
One is called “Lost Soul” and is a political statement about the state of our nation’s schools. It has been a controversial rug from the start. When I first showed the design to a rug hooking teacher her response was consternation. On the other hand, I received lots of encouragement from the people on Rug Hooking Daily, an online rug hooking community. So, after letting this sit for well over five years, I am pulling it out and working on it. It is a large rug for me, and so will probably take a while to finish. It is on rug warp as well. I have never hooked on rug warp before. I do not know if it will take a #6 wide strip or not. We’ll see how it goes.
Another piece I pulled out of my Treasure Trunk in the sunroom was the design for a laptop bag. I am wanting to finish that as well, for my own personal use.
Meanwhile, there is the SNOW rug, and I want to put “Goldfish” on backing too. Lots to do, so little time… 🙂
