Over a month ago, I shared my latest rug hooking project with you. I actually finished the hooking shortly thereafter, but didn't get the binding done until this last weekend. Why do I always do that? Finish a project - or almost finish a project and then leave it sit for several weeks. ARGH!
I am happy with how my saltbox house rug turned out. Now to find a place to display it....
Over a year ago, I found this lid from a basket or crate in a primitive store in Upstate NY. I was drawn to the patina and the crack in the middle stave. What to do with this? I wasn't sure, but knew that eventually a project would come up that I could use it in.
I simply drew my lettering on the backing and started hooking. The brown is from a pair of pants that I found at GW. I love the texture of this wool - it has a very subtle variation in it - no need to overdye. Unfortunately, I have used all this wool now :(
The lid now forms the perfect mat for my hooking. I still need to attach the hooking to the wood - I'm stumped if you have any ideas you can share with me......
Can you believe next week is November? Where is our fall going?
Hope you are having a good week.
