My Weekend Nemesis
Why do I label my newest creation as a nemesis...well you see, when I am really into a project...
I can't walk away, it's an addiction of sorts. The house could fall down around me and I would probably ignore it ;)
Just for the record, hubby finally did the sink full of dishes yesterday, LOL
So here it is...My inspiration came from antique Crocks and Stoneware
you know the ones with the pretty BLUE designs on them..birds, floral motifs, squiggles, yeah those ones.
Just freely drew the design onto burlap (I don't do much rug hooking and it's all I had on hand)
I did walk away long enough to replenish my body with food and drink,
oh and I even took Maygan sandal shopping yesterday BUT
when we returned home..it was right back to hooking
Here it is..
It's the biggest hooking project I have done so far...I think it is my 4th, it measures about 12" x 12". The edges are not exactly straight but that's okay, maybe someday I will get better at this art.. Practice & Patience.
