January 26, and then there was the sea

January 26, and then there was the sea

So on my notes for today I had said, Hook the sea. And I did. Most of my day actually.

My friend Denise came by with a loaf of bread and I had brought in some leek and potato soup and we made a little picnic in the studio on this winter day. It was quite cheerful to have a picnic, even if it was not outside under the sun. We had fun.

After that I sat with my rug for several hours. Tomorrow on the live I'll show you how much I have done. 

I was just talking to Cathy MacDonald , who manages this site and next wek we are going to make a little instructional video about how you can use this site to keep track of your rugs, create posts, and update your members page. So stay tuned. We are on the case.

Today in the studio Cathy was creating small patterns for our pattern basket. Joe was shipping Cheticamp frames and Patricia was making kits and overdying some boucle yarn. Angela is working on the wholesale brochure for our beginner kits. 

So today I hooked a lot, and hopefully tomorrow I will be making another turn in this big beautiful rug of Goldenrod.

  • I haven’t watched the live yet for this week. I can’t wait to see your progress. I love seeing how the ideas evolve and flow together. Thanks for thinking of the instructional video. I was happy I asked on Friday. We’ve got a really nice group of people here and it is nice being able to share in a safe environment.
  • It is so nice when you can just sit and hook and a blessing to be able to share food with friends . Looking forward to your video about using the site . I need all the help I can get ! LOL
  • You always make my mouth water when you share your food adventures 😋. I’m happy to hear about the instructional video I am never quite where I’m supposed to post. Today my pictures and post seemed to align but sometimes they don’t. Thanks for that!
  • Great idea, I’m finding it a bit tricky to navigate, especially from my cell phone, which is how I prefer to access it.
  • Looking forward to the instructional video. There is so much great info and stories on DF social, I don’t want to miss anything! Really enjoy seeing all the beautiful rugs. Thanks for all you and your team do!!
  • The instructional video on using the DFS Community would be most welcomed. I find myself going back to fb wild with wool. Thank you.
  • I’m looking forward to seeing the progress on your rug tomorrow during the Live! And I love watching you hook - you’re so fast:)! I hooked quite awhile on a rug today, too, but it was the second time I’d done that area. Hopefully I’ll be happy with it this time😄.

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.…
