Picking Up The Hook

I could stand it no longer. Had to have a project on the frame. That wool I dyed a couple of days ago was calling so loudly to be hooked. A quick little geometric design for a set of coasters was drawn up on linen. I am calling the design Geometric Sunflowers. I'm using the spot dyes and am lovin' the effect.

    I just noticed you line in Rice Lake. I am an honorary Wisconsinite -- spend lots of time at my in-laws' home in Ashland, and at their summer cabin in Cornucopia. Nothing like the north woods!
