Still working on Lost Soul, but I also have a few geometric/abstract kind of things happening right now. I am trying a new primitive linen backing and I am liking it better than the other backing I have been using. Unfortunately as far as I can tell it is only sold in the U.S. Means I’ll have to pay duty and customs on it when I bring it in, upping the price. Still, it’s a dream to hook on. I’ll have to figure out the relative cost to what’s available in Canada and see if it’s worthwhile switching to it.
I tutored my ESL student yesterday morning and she had to cancel Friday morning. That works well for me as I have loads of stuff to work on this week.
- hook Lost Soul,
- hook Mud Fight,
- hook Pine Cone,
- hook an abstract bud shape,
- hook a very enlarged cross-section of an okra…not sure what I’ll call it yet.
- read more Wild Fibers,
- spin some undyed Corriedale I found in my fiber bag,
- spin some silk/alpaca, if I have time.
I might even have time to make some hanging sleeves for those small 6″ rugs! We’ll see. I also want to make sure I am entered in a local sale for the springtime this week. If I don’t hear from them by Friday, I will go park myself in their offices with my application form and a cheque for my space. I am hoping my partner in crime will go into the sale with me again this year. But if she does not, I will still take part. It’s just plain fun to. I think I will take my hooking to work on this year. It gives me something to do and entertains the public.
With that in mind, I have to start drawing, and hooking my spring line. But that will be next week’s goal…
