My Magdalena horses - complete with a whipped edge. The finished size including the edge is about 13 1/2" x 22". Ali Strebel has the most wonderful 100% wool that I used.
The horse on the right is a bit chunky, shall we say? Sometimes I have a bit of a problem staying within the lines. It adds to its primitive charm, right?
Currently on the frame is a design by Lanna Omlor of Humble Rugs. It will be about 24 1/2 x 13 3/4 when completed. As many of you will attest to, using the hit and miss technique is not as easy as it looks. Other than the background, I plan to use only worms or cut pieces of wool that are only a few inches wide. I'm sure it would be a bit easier if I had separated the worms by color, but of course I didn't do that. This most likely will be a Christmas gift. If I'm going to get my gifts hooked, I'd better get busy, but this may get put aside to hook the snowman from the most recent issues of Primitive Quilts and Projects, designed by Tonya Robey. He just looks fun.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I was productive yesterday, but today not so much so. Oh well, better one productive day than none . . . sigh.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
