It's seems kind of quiet around here but there is a lot of planning happening! We were away recently for a couple weeks to finally visit one of our new grandsons, born during the pandemic. Great trip! Home in time to wait for the tropical storm Elsa!
I have a new supply of colorful Sari Ribbon which I will post on the website soon, as long as the power stays on! Sari ribbon can be used in rug hooking and weaving projects. It is versatile for fiber artists. This order came quickly, which I am happy for. Ordering and supply, and shipping is still a challenge for everyone.
My hooking slowed down for May and June. Still working on the huge one, Gainesboro. Only a couple roses and scrolls left. I have been hooking the background as I go. I am always happy to not have background left at the end. I do find it hard to have a large heavy rug on my lap during the summer. Picture will be soon.
My next rug will be sea turtles designed by Carolyn Stitch, available at rughook.com, Honey Bee Hive rug. My collection of wool, sari ribbon, yarn, hand-spun yarn, roving and more is over flowing in a large bag, ready and waiting. I throw things in and take something out. I know I need contrast, definite light and dark values.
