Not much "hooky" productiveness here. I am vending at two hook-ins in September, so I'm trying to get things made. Work and life has been stressful. Hopefully that will get better soon.
I did manage to hook this green pumpkin using hand torn strips. It will be finished "Betsy style" with a patchwork back. I really do like the finished product, but as everyone knows, finishing is not my forte.
I thought I would show the wool used. Not my usual color, but I do like that wool. One of those "poison" colors. I also wanted to show how far apart the hooked rows are when using wide strips. Mine are somewhere between 3/4" to 1". I don't measure exactly ~ I just snip and tear.
So much eye candy in this book. If you're not a hooker, you will be in awe of the talent. If you're a hooker, you will be inspired.
I received two copies of Celebration XXV. Rug Hooking Magazine sent a second copy because some of the original ones had issues with the binding coming loose. Mine is just fine, and since I don't need two copies, I will offer one to you. Entering is simple. Leave a comment on this post or send me an email with give-away in the subject. I do apologize to my Canadian friends, but this offer is open to those in the US only. I know the postage to Canada would be totally outrageous after what it cost me to send a small pendant. So sorry :( I will choose a winner in a week.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Must get back to making necklaces.
Pug hugs :)
