Rebecca from The Simple Quiet calls them un-finishes. I like that my pieces finally have a name. This evening I will share my hooked un-finishes with you. When I finally finish them, I will have to go back to my old posts to find when they were completed so that I can add the date to the label.
A Wendy Miller pattern, 1822 Fraktur Tulip Chairpad, purchased at Sauder Village in 2011. I chose not to hook it as a round chairpad. The finished size is 15" x 16 3/4". This was taken without a flash. The background is several shades of dark blue. Sorry it's a little blurry and still a little too bright.
Henny Penny, a Barbara Carroll pattern. This is the smaller version and the finished size is 15" x 20 1/2".
Berk's County Bouquet. Another Barbara Carroll pattern started in a class at the ATHA Biennial in October 2011. Even taken without a flash, the background is showing up much too washed out. It is hooked with several shades of black. The finished size is 17" x 20".
Dog and Cat, an antique adaptation. I started this last April at Susan Feller's Retreat in the Mountains in West Virginia. It is 16 1/2" x 25 1/2".
Finally, here's Pup, finished just recently. It's a Magdalena Briner adaptation. It's a belated Christmas gift and is 12" x 20 1/2". I really MUST get the binding done on this one.
Tin Rooster, a Star Rug Company pattern started last weekend at Sauder Village. If all goes well, this will soon become another un-finish. I just realized I used the same wool for the rooster that I used for the chicken in Henny Penny.
I really hope that you do a better job than I do at finishing projects. In another post, I will show my cross stitch un-finishes. There are MANY, some from decades ago.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
JRT hugs :)
