First chaos, then order.

I’m having fun with my stash-busting, I Love My OCD rug.  I grabbed an empty tub and put huge handfuls of noodles in it.  The variety of cuts and colors should be enough to create an interesting rug.  Every other section is hooked with two purple plaids in a #8.5 cut.  If this doesn’t decrease my stash, I don’t know what will, but I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

There is one little thing that is tickling my OCD, and that is the fact that if I don’t use up most of the noodles in the bin, I’ll have to separate them by color and put them back in their 2-gallon bags.  That task won’t actually be a bad thing.  The next project will be one for my Mother Earth Speaks series, so I will have to clean up my studio before starting that one.

In spite of many on-the-fly changes, this rug is hooking up quickly and I look forward to placing it in front of my studio door.  I’m sure that there will be some questions such as, “Whose initials are those?” 

I just received a brand-new rug hooking book to give away.  It’s a fun one, so be sure to tune in next week when I’ll tell you about it and start the giveaway.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in my latest free-wheeling rug hooking project!
