New Hooked Rug started & my fabric labels...
Hello everyone...hope you are all having a good day !! If not, here's a hug for ya .. ~~HUG~~..
I started a new rug today. It's the simple, "Flowers in a Pot" drawing I did ..
I'm still offering this drawing on the bridal veil fabric for $10. All you need to do is place the drawn out pattern over your linen or monk's cloth, pin in place, and trace over with your Sharpie and voila !! Your design is ready to hook !! This design measures 15" x 15".
Anyways....I decided I wanted to do this rug in muted and textured blues, tans,( greens for the stems and leaves) and soft browns ... Remember awhile back I posted about receiving a wonderful gift of many different wooly worms from a dear lady named Sher ? Well, I am using alot of the worms she had sent. They are nice and muted and many differetn plaids and checks ....I am having a difficult time finding enough of the tans that will work together, so I'm thinking of doing a little " marrying " of wools...we'll see how that works out.
Last night I finally made up some fabric labels to attach to my rugs, punched pieces , wool appliques, whatever ....
I did these up really fast, so, I'd like to spend more time and do some for Seasonal items ...I did almost have a mishap...the first page I did, the muslin was loose on just a teeny tiny spot on the corner and it almost jammed up my printer, but Thank God, it straightened itself out...phew...
So, I think I'm going to go and do a little more hooking, then get everything ready to make some of my wools work together better for the background on my new rug.
Good night friends !!
