February 27, hooking and home from the market

February 27, hooking and home from the market

I had such a nice weekend.

Yesterday morning and this morning I hooked on my rug. I just finished the sister rug of thispiee and it got me thinking of how much I like to make two rugs at once that are similar. When I paint I often have a few on the go . With rug hooking I often design one, finish it , then design another. Perhaps the Iris project got me thinking this. To draw a few that are similar at once and work on them letting one flow into the other. I may try this for a while and see how it goes.

Today we took a trip to a vegetable market and I got lots of groceries for the week. The picture here is one I had from a session I did with Megan Cormier of Gallery 8 Photography. It reminded me of my day so I shared it with you.

As the brightness of March starts to lead into the evening there is even more time to hook in the natural light.

I look forward to getting at my rug again in the morning.

I want to show you some little tips here on the Pom members site. Right now I am crazy about flower pots. These are very simple designs I am doing right now but it is their simplicity that is difficult to carry off. For this orange pot I used sexy jersey and highlighted it with rust slub. I wanted a clean looking pot with not too much colour . The pot cannot compete with the flowers in these rugs. The pot has a very simple shape. Lean and long, and only two colours mixed together. I think it…

Playful is best


Hey everyone, I have not had coffee or eaten my breakfast yet but I had an urge to visit with you here.  Right now I am so excited. It's thursday so we do our live which always gets me rolling. Last week I took a long walk on the marsh with friends and while there we began playing with our portrait mode on our iphones using the studio light mode and we got some fun results. I just wanted to show you what I discovered just by playing.…
