Friday, August 11

Hope your Friday is off to a sunny start, Sweet Friends!
This project was great fun... my third wool hooking project~

I was humming, "Here we go loopty loo~ here we loopty li"
the whole time I was hooking this...
Do hope a new tune comes in for the next projects planned!

I always find a favorite part in my art pieces~
Favorite wash in one area of my watercolors paintings.
Favorite 'happy accident' in my thumbnail sketch/illustration...
(So often becoming the main design!)
Favorite color combination in a punch needle piece...
How flowers cascade in one of our gardens~

The pumpkin is my favorite part of this hooked piece.
It has new wool that I dyed with a friend.
It has wool gathered from my favorite craft thrift.
Wool from an old skirt...
Wool from my mother in law that was hers & her mothers hooking wool.
Wool from my mother in law that she had procured from 
an estate sale of an elderly woman who had hooked rugs~

Loop by loop woven together!
Just like us!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Friends!

Michelle, you bring a painter's unique eye for color to rug hooking. Your use of color in all of your designs draws me in. Please continue to create work that we may enjoy. I'm just finishing "I love you to the moon and back." I appreciate your understanding of color--and my lack of it!

This made me smile! I thought of you and your beautiful hooking creations on Wednesday when I was at a local craft show/sale and there were a couple of ladies there demonstrating rug hooking. One lady was doing punch needle and the other was using a hook. My thought was that yours is prettier!

Michelle, your creations are always so pleasing to the eye whether it is through your punch needle or your ink illustrations on fabric or wood or paper. Thank you for sharing your creativity.

Thank you so much, Friends! I appreciate all of your kind words and encouragement~
Wool has a way of warming our hearts. Wool hooking brings the most simple shapes to life... now to find a few more hours to the day ;)
All the best to you!
