In my defense, I had made it around the vendors twice before I saw Mr. Scarecrow.
HE was so quirky and different. The designer was so nice and friendly. She showed me her plan with her wool to hook him. She was planning to keep the linen background and just hook the scarecrow and use these colors. Aren't they beautiful? He is 65 inches tall, so the plan is to hang him on the door.
I only bought one piece of wool for this rug. I am sure I have most of what I will need in my wool stash.
It is still a struggle to sit and rug hook with my back, but it is getting better and I look forward to getting back to my rug hooking. I am still working on the snowman rug. Big decision - put snowmen aside and start the new fall project or finish what I am hooking and do the Mr. scarecrow next. hmmmm. or take another nap.

I am glad your back is getting bigger - I would love to see how he turns out! I don't know that I know much about rug hooking!ReplyDelete
Decisions! Decisions! I know whichever you decide on, it will be fabulous. I’m glad your back is improving. Thanks for linking up to Creative Compulsions!ReplyDelete
Haha.....a nap sounds like an excellent idea. =) What a sweet scarecrow. He will look fabulous hanging on the door. How wonderful were able to get out and about and enjoy a show. Take care, lovely lady.ReplyDelete
Glad your back is getting better!ReplyDelete
Does the designer of that scarecrow rug have a website? It truly does have a welcoming quirkiness to it....and maybe there are other folks that would enjoy hooking him too! :-)
OMG!! You were so close to me and I didn't even know it! I didn't even know there was a rug hooking event going on, not that I hook, but I want to start wool embroidery, so I would have loved to shop some wools!! Hope your back allows you get back to hooking.ReplyDelete
