Here are the results of my hooking marathon yesterday and last evening! I covered a lot of ground in a few hours. I am using an 8.5 cut strip for the most part. A number 7 cut is working well around the berries and narrow spaces.
The line-up of wools I'm using is a mix of hand-dyed and off-the-bolt from Rebecca Erb and Heaven's to Betsy. There's the blue in the middle that I dyed over an oatmeal colored wool. Would you like the formula?
Civil War Soldier Blue
1/8th tsp. Cushings Blue
1/8th tsp. Cushings Navy Blue
1/8th tsp. Cushings Silver Gray
1/32 tsp. Cushings Jade Grn.
1 Cup Boiling Water
Use 1/2 cup over 3/4 of a yard of oatmeal colored wool
Just a wonderful Blue! I like to scrunch it up in an electric fry pan for a nice mottled effect.
Took the dogs on a nice little walk this morning( before our temperature's start to drastically fall! ... oh boy... from the high fifties to the twenties by this evening!) .. threw the ribs smothered in BBQ sauce and onions in the oven.
( don't you feel sorry for those poor souls who will be waiting in line around here for Blk. Friday deals??.... they are gonna freeze their little tooshes off! LOL)
Now I'm headed to the studio to try and figure out how I'm gonna hook those tongues around the border. They have been bugging me a little bit..... but I think I know what wools I'm going to use. Now if it just looks like I have envisioned I'll be all right.
Hope you are having a great Thanksgiving so far!
