This is Misi's first Display Chain for this year. I'm excited to see everyone's take on the theme this week which is Lion and Lamb (which she tells us is Sheep and Cats)
I would love to show you a picture of my little flock of black faced sheep. The sheep that live in a little pasture out behind our house. I'm dreaming - - I don't have any sheep! I do have wool though....
I have my current rug hooking project & extra wool stored in a wool drying basket that I made. This is a loose interpretation of a wool drying basket - while it is larger in size and has 2 end handles, the base is woven in the same twill pattern as the sides - over 2 under 2. Historically a wool drying basket had an open bottom - holes that allowed the water to drain off freshly washed wool.
Close up of the legs that hold the basket off the floor and the twill weave pattern....
My current hooking project - started on it in late August and hasn't made much progress! During the school year, I don't get much hooking done. (46 more days of school 'til summer break)
A treasured rug that my grandmother made.....I love it, hole and all!
How could my post be complete without these 2? Shadow looks like he could use a good shearing doesn't he? Frito just looks well fed.
