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.
