I have been working on “Lost Soul” the last couple of days. Had to rip some out and re-hook it. It is slow going, primarily because the backing is quite flexible. I am not convinced this particular backing (rug warp) will hold its shape under the weight of the hooking. I am going to have to strap it and reinforce it when I finish it. It is quite a large piece for me at 30″ x 35″.
I have also been busy filling out forms for Dimensions and Jury’s Out exhibit being held by the Saskatchewan Craft Council later this spring/summer. Dimensions is actually a year long traveling exhibit that goes to different corners of Saskatchewan promoting crafts.
I am working on the hanging system for a couple more rugs – “Star Rug” and “Polar Bear Play”. One of them, plus “Wind”, will be sent for jurying into Dimensions.
This afternoon I plan to do some dyeing…and more sketching and hooking. A busy and fun day!
