The Tour de France is on now…so my hooking has switched to being a morning activity…We even upgraded from 65 channels to 999, just so that I could get TSN2 which is carrying it this year…I really should say ‘listening” to the “tour de France”…since I hook every morning while it is on. I’ve been hooking on Hygieia’s arms, and I’m nearly finished them….
I started with 1 1/4 yards of dip dyed flesh tones….5 pieces each 1/4 yd. One was too red and I discarded it. For the others…some I used lengthwise with the strip running from dark to light…and others I cut crosswise to have either a light or a dark strip.
I shortened her arm which is holding the dish…
it was quite a bit too long.
I don’t really like that arm at this point…
but I won’t change anything now…I’ll wait to see how I feel about it when the hooking around it is complete.
As I was posting the pictures of the Trent display for the last post…I realized that Jill’s Zipper Matrix rug wasn’t there. I knew I’d taken a picture of it…so I went hunting again through my pictures and found I had missed a whole bunch that I had taken of the display…so here they are…. better late than never.
Gail’s dancing trees are so joyous.
Hooking a picture of our house is definitely on my to do list….this provides great ideas (it’s not unlike ours)
an interesting braided edge
And here is Jill’s version of Zippers…I love it in this colour family (actually much more useful than my purples….which are pretty but won’t go with any room in my house)
I don’t know if this is a Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern…but it is
certainly reminiscent of her style.
Two great orientals…
.and of course there were many more wonderful rugs to be seen.
Hopefully I’ll have Hygieia completed to display next year.
