On the Frame

Bird with Attitude

Apparently, I have a thing for chickens at the moment. Please do not ask me to explain. This one is a mystery to me, too. Nonetheless, this attitude driven poultry diva has dominated my frame lately. There are still some corrections I want to make and a few details I want to define better, but at this point it is easier for me to step away for a bit, concentrate on the background, and see how the whole starts to define itself.

Stay tuned.

Sundays are for Hooking

Well, not much needlecraft happened this weekend, but plenty of cookies were baked, not to mention consumed.  My weekdays are happily and soundly packed with shipping orders, fulfilling custom orders, and creating new works for my shops, but that has left little time for my biggest rug hooking project yet.  Sundays seem to be the day I get to settle in with a great audiobook, hook in hand and silly wool worms (that I still can’t believe can make anything so lovely) at the ready.  It is a blissful pursuit.

The Paisley Rug is inching its way towards completion.

And it progresses

I’m still searching for a few more pieces of fabric to complement the background colors. Unfortunately, whenever I find the perfect piece of wool to work with, inevitably it is being worn as part of some lucky person’s ensemble (pants, skirts, etc.). A little inappropriate to get all grabby about it.
