Summertime rughooking project

Gainesboro will be my summer project - too hot to dye, too hot to be outside.  So with the AC and a fan I will be hooking this large 60 inch round pattern.  I purchased the Pearl McGown pattern drawn on burlap and transferred it to linen. Not an easy task.   Using the "Scrolls are Easy" book by LaVerne Brescia I decided to dye my wool with the formulas in the book.  Dip dye, swatches, painting.  I began hooking this with Sally Ballinger in February this year.  I hope to post weekly updates as the summer goes by.
