After a few false starts, I’m having fun working on my super secret project. Like many of my projects, one thing leads to another and I follow the breadcrumbs until I get to the end. I think it’s fine to share a few things as I go along, such as a creative resource that is proving invaluable.
This resource is the book, Coils, Folds, Twists, and Turns by Tracy Jamar [© 2017 Stackpole Books]. Do you have this book? It is filled with amazing techniques and ideas for all sorts of projects. I wrote a review of it, which you can read here.
The photo below shows my standing wool quillies, which will be part of the project. This is not really a hooking project, but as we rug hookers know, anything made with wool is fair game. I’ve torn 1 ½” strips and folded them before rolling. I like the soft edge this gives.
I’m still deciding what else to start hooking. Sometimes I come to a pause and have to wait for inspiration. Maybe I’ll jump right into a Halloween project. It’s always the right time for Halloween, isn’t it? Or there are always the ferns and fiddleheads that are waiting.
There's a lot of beauty out there and in playing with wool.
