Yesterday was Jimmie Dean's first birthday!!! My, how he's changed our lives in that year. He is my constant companion. Truly unconditional love is what he shows me. And he listens to me~really listens (not like husbands do!) What did I ever do without him?
And I thought I would share with you the progress of my antique stars rug. I hooked the center star, then promptly ripped it out. It was too rounded and looked like a flower instead of a star. Then this afternoon I hooked the flower on the right and promptly ripped it out too! I didn't like the color I had chosen. Remember, these are not my "normal" colors? I must say I'm proud of myself so far for not changing my palette to brighter, richer colors. I'm keeping them antiquey looking.
And on my last post someone asked me whose pattern this is. I drew it from an antique rug from the mid nineteenth century. No copyright laws from that long ago, so I guess I can say it's my design!?!?! Let me know how you feel about this. I saw one design for sale that I know I have seen in an antique rug book and this designer had a copyright of her own on it. I just don't really know how this works and would love to hear your opinions.
I'm on somewhat of a roll with my hooking so I'm going to go do some more right now while I'm in the mood!
