Good morning everyone! So you may be wondering which project I’ve decided to work on next.  I looked at my project mind map and updated it. I want to move onto some Nova Scotia themed mats, but I have three small poetry mats left from my children’s poetry to complete.  All three are on backing.  All three present different challenges. So I decided to finish those up.

I decided to hook “The Weave” next.  It is based on a poem my youngest daughter wrote around 17 years of age on the fabric of life.  I already put it on backing last summer. This weekend I colour planned it.  I am using a hexad colour scheme, which is new to me.  So I sent a series of texts, including photos, to my weaving relative with excellent colour sense to get her opinion.  I am eagerly awaiting her reply.  In the meantime, I’ve actually started hooking it.

While I am finishing the poetry series up, I am preparing for my next series of wall hangings focusing on the wharves of Nova Scotia.  Hubby and I went on a day trip with my walking buddy to her cabin/trailer on Digby Neck this spring before lockdown. I had a lovely time stopping in at the various wharves in the area, taking oodles of photos!

This weekend I started the preliminary sketching for a new series.   I am not sure how I am going to represent some of these wharves.  I may end up going slightly abstract…or not.  We shall see.

If you have been, thanks for reading!  Have a great week everyone!
