Topsy-turvy.

Winter arrived on the first day of spring.  The clocks sprang forward and I don’t know what time it is.  I get up at 4:30 a.m., which is really 3:30. “They” can’t fool me! Things are feeling topsy-turvy right now.

So, as long as that’s how it’s going to be until Standard Time returns, I decided to start my Tombstone Angel rug by hooking the background.  I’m using the over-dyed grey wools that I bought from Jan Cole, The Wool ‘n’ Gardener, for the background instead of the tan over-dyes that I planned on using there.  Switcheroo.  The tans I’ll use for the feather outlines.  I have some yummy lavender, moss green, and spotty cream wool for the feathers.  I wonder how that will turn out?  It will be a surprise as I hook along.

I’m also designing another rug that I will show as I hook it, although it’s a gift for someone.  That one will be filled with lots of color.  I think.  But like all of my rugs, they color plan themselves. 

Who knows what will happen in my topsy-turvy world?

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the surprises that occur every day in my rug hooking studio.

  The background is hooked with #8.5 wool cloth strips.  The rest will be in an 8 cut.
