Okay, I really need to get down to getting some things done today! I am up early and off to a good start. I have another ESL student this morning. I am playing catch-up from yesterday. I ended up doing household chores and scanning negatives into the computer, and watching all of the rest of Fundamentals of Photography. I started a course called Cultures of the World. Lots to do today!
- Scan some books I have for rug ideas,
- Hook on Lost Soul some more,
- Scan more negatives,
- Read Finishing Hooked Rugs,
- Spin more soy silk/alpaca,
- Get that prairie sky rug on backing if it kills me!
For the first one on my list, which I have already started, I have pulled off the following books. Ideas can really come from anywhere. I find studying the work of other artists in other media to be stimulating and intriguing. I am off to the library to check out some other more traditional art books.
I am currently taking Deanne Fitzpatrick’s Beginning to Hook Abstract Rugs online course. I highly recommend Deanne’s courses as a way to expand your horizons and learn to hook. I have taken most of her online courses to date – Wild with Wool, Wild with Style, Hooking People, and this one. She is very generous with her information. Her courses are well worth the money.
