It’s so difficult to work on hooked rugs that I can’t divulge yet. There’s one that I finished about a year ago, and I’m still waiting for it to be published, so I can do a show and tell on my blog. I’m not known for my patience, so I guess this is good for me.
I’m completing my rug for the Barn Project spearheaded by Lisanne Miller. All of the hooking is finished and now I want to do some creative embellishments and then frame it. I don’t usually frame my pieces, but this one seems to call for it.
So, that’s two super secret rugs, and there’s one more. I am just designing it now and that’s all I can say. My lips are sealed.
With all of these secrets to keep, I’ve decided to re-visit some of my rug patterns that are on the Shop page of my website. I don’t have any Christmas patterns, but three of these have a winter-y feel and one evokes a stained glass window.
I do love winter and have ideas for some snowy patterns in the future. Hooking snow is a good way to see shadows and the colors that are in them. Snow isn't just white.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the festive decorations and planning for the holiday season.
