Slow Progress

Well, I’ve finally begun my re- entry into the world of rug hooking. I almost burned up in the “ atmosphere” before I even touched down. 

I get too worked up worrying about all the I shoulds and I needs. Lol

This is the design I’m doing and hoping to get it finished and putting it out as a pattern  

I also having troubles commenting on others blogs, and the comments on my own blog  I do most from my phone and I get error messages  …..

So , please forgive me if I don’t comment back to you  and I will try to get it sorted out  …

Here is a little stitching I did from my Folky Flower Pots Doodle Booklet  , I’m thinking of some decorative stitches as a border  … it was fine on hand dyed muslin  I don’t recommend it as it’s quite tough getting even a brand new sharp needle through the fabric. I have some hand dyed Osnaburg and I know that would have been a better choice  .

Have a lovely day everyone  😊

Robin, it is looking really great! Just remember there are no rules for rug hooking despite what some people posted on your previous blog years ago. I mix cut sizes in the same piece depending on what the spot needs. My go to favorite cut is #8.5 but have reduced down to much smaller for dots, for the center of a flower, for an eye, a hoof, etc., so you get the picture.
Have also used a smaller cut when trying to finish the background and the space is too narrow for the #8.5 strip. Take a deep breath and dive in gurlfren! It is supposed to be fun. Cute design, by the way.

Your hooking is off to a great start...and ditto what Saundra said. NO RULES! I, too, mix many sizes of cuts in the same piece.

Love both your current rug and your stitchery! I hand cut my worms, so they are always wonky. LOL Who cares. Our foremothers did not have cutting machine and I dont think they cared what size went where either. Janice

I love that pattern. I hope you continue to hook. I really, really miss you in the blogging world, and I love your patterns so much.
I understand about life though, it happens.
So nice to see you back.
