Here is a bit of my work.
I have two new patterns on my frames. I dyed wool this week so I am ready to go, but I had to get the binding done before I can pick up my hook.
Cathy Greschner patterns!
I do enjoy her patterns so much. The whole time I am hooking them I feel like I am smiling. I was trying to use up my worms-my left over pieces of wool. I didn't make a dent in the bags I have but it is fun to try and use them anyway.
The words are loosely copied from A Midsummer's Nights Dream.
"And heard a mermaid on a dolphins back, uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath, that the rude sea grew civil at her song; and certain stars shot madly from their spheres to hear the sea-maids music."
I think it will look lots better bound and re-steamed. This one will be one I have to put away for awhile as all I see are the mistakes. I did that what is is called, you know when you rip it out, oh yea, reverse hooking. Three times. I just had to finally stop.
This is the middle of July and I have so many summer rugs I wanted to get done. I am ready to start doing fall rugs.
Just a bit of what I got done this week. I hope to start on the mermaid rug binding, today. After my work of course.
I hope you have a lovely Thursday,
