A couple of days ago I had a little creative burst that came out of nowhere! I kept envisioning some type of hooked hanging heart with a lot of texture.... like a birds nest with sticks and fibers entwined to create a hanging pocket of sorts. The photo above shows what I created.
I lined the inside with burlap and added a felted backing so things could be tucked inside. The handle is wrapped rusty wire. There are even scraps of linen backing hooked into the design. Interesting. I wondered what would happen and if it would work. I liked the effect. I was in creative bliss and thinking like a bird on warm spring day picking what she could find from her surroundings and weaving it into her nest.
The next burst of energy I had was spent rearranging a part of the studio. There was a cabinet I wanted to move to the front entrance to house new dyed wool. This particular cabinet was filled with things needing to be sorted and stored elsewhere. After completing that task and moving the cabinet... the corner ended up looking like this...
I was even able to incorporate a little coffee and tea bar tucked in amongst the wool....
Hopefully those of you in the path of this big winter storm traveling north and eastward stay safe! Sounds like a good time to stay home and get some hooking and stitching done on those projects!
I will be putting the kits together for my beginning rug hooking class that starts on Feb. 21st and hooking on the Mr. Chill rug for a customer. And you never know... I may just get another burst of creative energy!
