January 25, Rolling Along

I made another turn in Goldenrod today after starting the sea. I had nothing in my stash left for the water so I made my wauy to the wools and added five new one. Lichen and Lace and Rasta were in the pile. I really wanted something think to add a bit of bounce to the piece. Everything so far was two ply almost. It needed a texture shift. I have never hooked a complete landcape this big before with out houses or a community. There is a tiny village in the back hills but this rug witll not have the structure of houses to rely upon. I am always excited to go to a new stage, to rol;l the frame. It tells me that progress is happening.  Right now I need a stretch so I will go out in the snow onto our street and walk around the block a few times just to refresh my limbs. The I think I will come back and hook for another bit while I listen to a story or a podcast. They keep me company, even if I am only half listening. Still I am there at the frame with a voice to soothe me.

  • I can't wait to see the finished rug. You always hook magnificent rugs that inspire me. I love seeing the progress and the beautiful colors you choose. And I look forward to seeing you and the girls each Thursday. You all make my week. See you tomorrow.
  • I’m really enjoying following along. Love all the colours and excited to see it at the end. There’s so many fun little spots on the rug already that draw my attention, and it’s fun seeing how it all connects.
  • I have been watching the golden rod rug since the beginning and I'm loving it. I love to see the progress you make each week. I'm at my hooking group on Thursday while your live but watch you on FB that evening. Since joining the Harbour, I'm finding that I'm enjoying watching you hook and the way that you analyze the rug. I have completed the January month, moved on to Feb but have gone back to the Jan hooking lesson many times. I watch you draw and hook people and try to practice as I watch you. I have never drawn anything on my own or I have to say am not overly creative! My reasons for joining the Harbour is to learn from you how to loosen up in my hooking, draw or sketch a bit and be creative. My dream is to draw and hook, in primitive style myself and three sister and hook a mat with us four for each of us. This will be a memory mat that each of us will have. In Jan your idea of 8x8 is very appealing and just the right size.
    I also want to be able to hook small landscapes and know that when I'm done you will be able to know what I hooked.
    I just to add that I love your Winter Series of Iris' and would love to do that course. However, I decided to wait this one out while I learn as much as possible in the Harbour. I've been hooking for 25 years or so but usually a commerical pattern. I find that I'm bored and need to broaden my mind. I think the Harbour will help me along the way. If the rest of the lessons are as captivating as January, I'd say I'm in the perfect course!

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.…
