I picked up my hook again, finishing a rug and a sweet deal !!!
First of all, I wanted to say, after quite a while of not touching my wool or my hook, I am back at it, trying to finish up my Antique Rug Challenge Rug from AAPG ....I did do some more, honest !!!....lol
Remember in one of my previous posts, I said that ", Hunting for chairs in my passion and chairs are my holy grail "...?
Well, for months now, I've been hunting and searching Craigslist for a nice comfy upholstered chair to sit in, in my craft room while I hook or punch....Seems like every time I looked, either I had no money and there were chairs a plenty, or I did have money and no chairs were to be found.
I finally found one, it is like brand spanking new, not a hair, speck of dirt or any wear or tear on this...It is from Basset....It's not exactly what I would have chosen if I were buying brand new, as far as the fabric is concerned, but it is very nice and goes in my craft room just fine !! And the best part of all....It was only $25 !!
I now have to arrange a few things and set it up right by my window, so I can be nosy and see the world while I'm working, and get my lamp over there for lighting....and it will be a sweet little space for me !!
I'm thinking now of having hubby make me a cube from plywood and I've seen some awesome hooked ottoman patterns ....That would be PERFECT ..yes ????
I received a few of the swatches from Spoonflower, of my fabric designs...the colors are wonderful and the fabric itself is great, but I needed to go back and minimize the actual size of the designs....
I've come up with a few new designs that I am going to order swatches of and make for public sale....
Hope you all had a great Monday and now, almost time for bed and on to a new day tomorrow !!
