Good morning! How’s everyone doing? I hope all is well with my readers. I had a great weekend and am looking forward to more this coming week.
Last night was The Gathering, the last event of Workshop Week 4. It went quite well I thought. There was a lot of very interesting discussion. I worked on my Boucherouite rug during that time and accomplished quite a bit.
I also spent time on my The Farm piece. I mostly cut and tacked in place key appliqué pieces. I did hook the shutters on the windows and the porch roof. I’m working on hooking the porch supports. Then I’ll take a break to sew down those appliqué parts.
I finished the braided edge on the chair pad and it is in situ. Hubby says it’s more comfortable and a lot warmer to sit on.
This week will see more hooking on the Boucherouite, and work on “The Farm”. I also have all the supplies and equipment to repair the edge of the big antique rug, nicknamed “The Wedding Rug”, that I recently acquired.
In looking at the antique green floral rug I have determined it needs to be fixed with the same type of backing it was hooked on. I’m on the hunt for about a yard of high quality burlap for fine shaded #3 cut rugs.
Aside from that, I have some Parker’s Cove patterns to put on backing, and three Zoom hook-ins this week. It will be a busy week for rug hooking!
If you have been, thanks for reading! Have a great week everyone!
