Having finished my Five Fish rug, I’m now ready to begin something new. I’ve had a design in my head for two years and I think it’s time to get it out of there and onto linen. This new rug will be titled, Memorial Day. I bought some wool for it a couple of years ago from Jan Cole, The Wool n’ Gardener. Of course, colors might change a bit as I go along. I don’t like to box myself into anything, but rather be fluid with colors and design as I progress. This rug will not be finished by Memorial Day later this month, but it’s the perfect time to at least get it started.
Spring has been slow to begin for real in these parts. I did take some photos of a few signs of the season around Crow’s Foot Farm. Leaves are beginning to unfurl, forsythia and daffodils are in bloom, and the hens have enjoyed the first taste of dandelion flowers.
I’ve been in Oregon this past week visiting my sweet granddaughter, Lucy, and her parents. There are lots of design inspirations in Oregon’s mountains and rivers and I will share some photos with you next time.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and Oregon is filled with it!
