Most people rest or sleep when they are sick, not me. I tend to get milder symptoms for longer periods of time, so it is good in way, bad in others. While I was sitting on my duff, I decided to start some new simple projects for fun and to give me something to do.
I still had a piece of locker hooking backing, and lots of fabric, so I made a locker hooked rug. I thought I could do it in a couple of days, it took four and I finished binding today. I am not an expert, I just made it, and tried to go with a rug look this time. I think it might be too geometric and mod looking to go with my hooked rugs, so will figure out a place for it. I think if you use all homespuns, it would make a really nice prim rug.
I still need to take pictures of the items I won. Today I received my basket and it is so wonderful. I want to give each item it's own page, since they are all so wonderful.
This is a closer look to show the colors better. I used a mix of materials and weights.
I also got an idea for a wall hanging from a photo I saw. I took the dog and fence and made them into an applique and then started adding things around him. I still have sewing to do and I am thinking of adding some butterflies and other garden creatures. It is a work in progress. I will embellish it after I add all the pieces.
