Hi everyone! This week has been busy with kitchen renovation stuff. We took delivery of half an IKEA kitchen…the rest being on back order. We had a flooring guy in, who recommended a local plumber. We had the carpenter in to discuss removal, install and countertops. We did not buy an IKEA countertop in the end. It’s been busy on the kitchen front.
As for rug hooking…I finished the hourglass piece three or four times. I’m not sure I’m happy with it yet. I plan to add embellishments come Beth Miller’s embellishment class on March 27th. Hopefully that will lift it from ho-hum to something a bit more lively.
Here are photos of the last three tries at “Autumn”. The first attempt had bright orange chains top and bottom on the dark brown border. Then I tried the greys…too boring. Then I tried light orange and that just looked weird . I changed the main link to gold ribbon and added a more rust coloured orange. I’m happier with it now.
I also finished “Autumn” finally. I may tweak the letters and the table a bit. I am not happy with how the shape of the table reads. I had a hard time with the colour of the table in the corner and the placement of the mug of tea. I thinkI finally figured those out
That leaves the Fraktur chair pad from Susan Feller’s class, Folk Art with Flair, from Workshop Week 2 in February. Plus the design and hooking of three other coordinating chair pads!
There was no fibre dyeing this week, but Monday I will post some blue formulas. So stay tuned for further dye formulas!
Have a great weekend everyone!
