I haven't hooked much lately. In December I was too busy with getting ready for Christmas, Clara's visit, a wedding, visiting friends. I hardly worked at all. And now I am paying the price, lol. I am currently preparing for my very first solo show to be held next month at the Syosset Library and I want to have something new for it. But I may have bitten off more than I can chew. (And what else is new?)
I started the proddy in the photo months ago. Someone gave me a big box of wool with lots of gray flannel in it. I don't use gray in my rugs much, and it isn't much fun to over-dye, so I decided to make a prodded rug with it. I thought it would be a good break from hooking and I wouldn't need a frame for it since I have one of those gizmos with the spring in it. Well, this is a big rug (6 feet long), and proddys take a lot of wool and I am nowhere near finished.
I'm glad to be working again, but I think I may have to give up the idea of finishing this for the show. I have a lot of much more colorful ideas bouncing around in my head that I would like to try out. Hmmm . . . .
