Scrappy Doodles

December was a raucous month.  As soon as the 24th rolled around, I hit the highway on my way to the refuge of a quiet cabin.  Cookbooks, knitting, and hooking were packed to excess.  And I just doodled with wool, using up my scraps, testing out some truly primitive burlap, and soaked up the solitude.

The Beau

Still cold out, but in my head my toes are still tucked in warm sand. The Vintage Bathing Beauty needs a Beau. And I think I may have finally come up with a design I’m happy with. Still tweaking, but I’m liking it overall.

My head is dancing with ideas of how I’d like to hook this, what materials and colors I want to use. I know a lot of folks color plan their rugs, but that just never works for me. Maybe more to the point, I don’t seem to be good at sticking to a plan. Free spirit and all…

The Beau for our Belle.
