I've decided to do the Chicken Challenge that I read about here on Saundra's blog or you can read more about it here. I had mine enlarged to about 14" x 29".
. . . and then bought this one from friend Melissa at Sauder. This rug is 22" x 43". I've not yet hooked anything that big.
I also had planned on getting back to this UFO ~ Whatnots, a pattern from Woolley Fox. I started it in the summer of 2012 at the Heavens to Betsy camp at Shaker Village. I don't know why it got put aside. I had lofty goals this year. I was going to spend one week a month hooking on it until it was done. Maybe next month . . . sigh.
Anyway, back to the CC rug. I will probably hook it similar to the original, but my real challenge is that I am going to ONLY use worms that are in my stash ~ no cutting allowed. I thought I would have a problem with greens, but when I was a new hooker, I spent more than a small fortune on eBay buying already cut wool. I bought so much bad wool, but being a newbie, I had no idea it was bad :( . I got rid of lots of it, but kept the best of it. Supposedly it is an 8 cut, but some appear narrower. Anywho . . . I will use that for the trees if needed. After having hooked with a wider cut, I don't even like to hook with an 8.
I'm not sure if I'll have time to hook this evening, but I will get started separating worms by color.
Last night we got about another 6" of snow but tomorrow we will be getting warmer temperatures, so instead of getting calls at work about snow, we will be getting calls about flooding. It just cracks me up. At least 50% of the calls I got today were from senior citizens who had a doctor's appointment and we NEVER plow their streets ~ and we DELIBERATELY put the snow at the end of their driveway and none of their neighbors. Some callers truly believe the plow drivers pick and choose where the snow comes off the plow :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
