Well, my wool order from Heaven's to Betsy didn't show up yesterday. I was bummed because now I have to wait until Monday to meet Lucy Blue face to face! So being all in the mood to hook something..... anything...... I drew a couple of circles on some linen, closed my eyes and envisioned a sunflower. A little coaster sized mat materialized. Maybe it looks more like an eyeball than a sunflower?
In the next circle ( about 10 inches in diameter) I decided to play with neutrals. I always have a hard time with neutrals. I love how they look but Mrs. Orange Sink cannot seem to hook a neutral colored mat if her life depended on it. So this is what I came up with.....
I know.... maybe not what most would consider neutral but I'm working on it.
I even decided to get a little funky with this one and put a wavy edge on it. Fun maybe until it comes time to bind it. I don't think it will be too bad though. I should have done the Eaton edge on it but I didn't take the time.
Some of my readers had asked what an Eyeball Plant was from a previous post on the garden tour to the Safferts. Here is a photo of it I took this morning.
It isn't doing all that great. Something's eating the leaves which I find strange because if chewed they have numbing qualities. In fact if chewed enough I read they will numb your entire mouth enough to interfere with swallowing etc. Go HERE to read up on them. It's actually the Para Cress plant or some call it the toothache plant. I could have used some of this on my lower extremities these past couple of weeks.... if you know what I mean! LOL! Today is the first day I have actually felt somewhat normal. Now if I can just stay clear of bees and gynecologists for the rest of the summer maybe things will start to look up!
Now if that wool would get here Monday....... there's a couple of wild horses waiting for their background to be hooked!
