Happy New Year to everyone. It’s that time to reflect on the past, and make plans (dare I say resolutions) for the new year. So I decided to review just what I had hooked in 2015.
I completed several rugs. Hijab……for the Women’s Day Art Show….
Creating Hijab was fun and interesting, (that’s a shadow across the top not a stain).
I learned a lot in creating the red scarf with just three different shades of mottled wool.
This little bunny which was hooked in a challenge. It is not quite finished here. I’ve never liked it , so perhaps that’s why I can’t find a shot of the completed rug.
I hooked this little seascape using wool which was distributed amongst the Sunshine Rug Hookers from the stash of the late Hilda Hayes. We each hooked something which reminded us in some way of Hilda.She and her family came from England in the late sixties, and I thought this serene English seaside sunset was appropriate. It is now framed and hanging in my front hall.
I was hooking zentangles for awhile for our group demonstration at R.U.G. and this one is now whipped and sits atop my hall table.I completed a number of small projects….
…..like these pins for my DIL
….and these mug rugs for various relatives and friends…
I whipped the edge of my Lunenburg rug…..….so it is finally complete….
I have my two “workshop pieces ” underway but not completed….
(actually they are both farther along than this, but my camera has once again stopped uploading pictures GRRRRRRR!!!)
The largest project, which I’ve been working on all year, is Grumpy Owl. Since this photo was taken, I’ve finished the background and done some reworking of the moon.….it is whiter, with more clouds and fewer “squiggles”and there may well be further adjustments to it.
So that was 2015.
Now for 2016, I’m ready to get back to working on my sweet Grumpy Owl and to finish it as my first project of the year.
As for a New Year’s hooking resolution? It is to hook without pressured deadlines and to enjoy every loop I pull. Let’s see if I can keep this one.
Thanks for stopping by.
