I hope that you have been enjoying the nicer weather - even the humidity is welcome ;-)
Yesterday I decided to just relax and do some more rug hooking and make some more progress on my Pickering Oak rug. Pickering Oak is a pattern on Gene Shepherd's web site. I just love the colours he used.
This rug is destined for our bedroom and I can't wait for it to be finished so I can stand on it every morning! I already stood on the small part that is done just to test it and - you know what - it works LOL!
I know it looks a bit odd right now but that's because I haven't hooked the leaves yet - and I know that's not correct - but here's my confession - I have to dye the leaf wool still! Yikes
Here it is - that natural un-dyed wool just staring at me waiting for me to step up and dye it. But I am a bit nervous about it to be honest. It is a new technique for me - spot dying or as Gene calls it ordered wool pancake dying or something close to that. I've watched his video on it several times but I am just a bit nervous about it. I know I know! Just get to it and I can over-dye if necessary LOL!
Maybe I will put the wool in to soak tonight and just get on with it tomorrow. I really want to start hooking those leaves!
