A little hooking detour, that is. No real progress on my rug since I decided to hook some "Heavens to Betsy style" hearts. Hooked with hand torn strips about 1" wide, they will be backed with wool patchwork and lightly stuffed with wool snippets and a lavender pouch. If you need lavender, check out eBay seller lavenderandotheritems. I got a half pound of Washington state grown lavender for only $12.50 which included shipping. I could smell it as soon as I opened my mailbox. Heavenly.
Here are the hearts I worked on. They hook up very quickly, being about 10 1/2" high x 9 1/2" wide. The back will take longer than the hooking, but they look so nice when done.
The wools that I used. Both of these were cut across the stripe.
On the heart to the left, I cut the wool across the plaid. The wool on the right it did not matter how it was cut.
Stay tuned. I will be having another give-away soon and one of these hearts will be going to a new home.
Another beautiful day on Ohio's north coast. Sunny most of the day. Currently 57*. I am lovin' it :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
