While I’m finishing up the hooking on the background of Hygieia, I’ve been planning what I’ll do next.
I have two projects planned. The first is an 8″x8″ piece for a yahookers swap. The theme is winter…I found this old Christmas card, and I think I’ll try to adapt the picture on it
I should be able to find plenty of scraps to do it……talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous…sizewise!
The second is a pattern I fell in love with when I saw it…by Heidi Kramer. I’ve never done anything really whimsical before, and this pattern just ticked me to no end…
.the fat cat sitting on a flower. I have a fat cat of my own…Akuma…a seal point siamese…and I’d love to hook at least a representation of him.
My other cat Akira….is a lilac point…and his colours would make the project easier (pale cream and blue grey points) . Then a background would be simple….But the fact is he’s skinny as a rail, and I just can’t make him fat!
So here I am again…haven’t even pulled a loop, and already I’m debating about backgrounds….what will I use against pale flowers and a leaves, and a sable cat. This time I’m going to settle it before I even begin.
For diversion from hooking the background of Hygieia….
I hooked the bowl with a dip dye I had left over from my hall runner,
and fiddled around with the choker…using an 8 value swatch
….not sure if that technique/colours will stay….it looks a bit too Mexican for a greek goddess.
