I worked on my rug some more and got the bird and my hand done the other day and tonight I worked on the other horse. I got an idea for a new project to make as a gift, so I cannot show you that now;) It is hard to believe it takes hours to get what seems, so little, but it adds up and it will be finished in no time, lol. I was planning on going with a black background, but thinking along the lines of a light prim green instead, so we shall see.
I took a close up of the bird and the wool that I used in it. I thought you might like to see how this wool works up. It is fun to use multi-colored plaids in a project like this, it gives you variation with one wool. I think the hand will look better when it gets some background around it, but the lettering seems too large. I always wait until I put in the background before I change things, sometimes they look better when it is all put together and if not, then I can change them.
I also started a new project today, a crazy type quilt with cat and dog appliques, so I will show you that when I get working on them. I like to cut out and make my own little kits for projects, so I always have something to work on. I work by mood, so sometimes I take a hooking break and sew or punch. It is nice to have a project ready, so I don't have to think or get something ready when I just want to work on it.
