Happy hump day! It was a gorgeous day here on Ohio's north coast. Sunny, low wind and in the upper 40's. I will take that kind of weather any time I can get it in March. Sadly tomorrow it will be cloudy with a high of 32*. Welcome to Ohio.
As I've said previously, I found Saundra's challenge very challenging. I know many enjoyed using alternative fibers to hook. I was not one of them. Am I glad I did it? Mostly yes. Will I do another? HELL NO!!!
I was this close to finishing my background using an old t-shirt when I ran out.
I had another that was somewhat close, so I did what our foremothers would have done and used it. Not too bad and I am kind of glad I ran out. The background color is actually the color in the previous photo. I thought it was black, but sometimes it looks like a very dark navy.
I used cotton, paisley, sari ribbon, two kinds of wool yarn (oh, the olive green was a bear to hook with), one little strip of velvet and a cotton t-shirt. The finished size is 12 3/4" x 15 1/2".
Thanks to Saundra for putting this on and for all the wonderful updates on her blog.
good great news. I had my six week post op appointment on Monday. Things are looking as they should and I can drive and wear a real shoe. WOO HOO! The first place I drove? To the hooking shop Monday eve 😁
My next big driving experience was on Tuesday to get my mammogram. Gotta take care of those tatas. I haven't yet gotten the results, but am hoping and praying all is well.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊
