I found a new home for my vintage quilt. It's on the living room chair. I won't be cutting it up, so my sister can breath a sigh of relief! I don't need a quilt ,as the weather has been gorgeous. But, winter is coming, and a nice quilt would be nice to keep around.
What's on my frame??? I've been working on my older snowman face rug that I started a while ago. I decided to do the background in a saltbox red that I dyed. I used a natural, oatmeal, and 2 light plaids of wool all in the same dye pot. My flash is really emphasizing the differences in the wools, but it's a nice blend.
I'm not thrilled about hooking on monks cloth again. I'm finding that my hook gets stuck and I end of grabbing a small section the cloth. I think I'll stick to linen for all future projects.
I get a 4 day weekend this weekend. I might end up painting the foyer, on top of doing more job hunting. I'm totally discouraged about finding a job. I just applied to an internal posting, but didn't even get an interview. Sigh. Maybe one day. If only I could get paid (enough to make it worthwhile) to craft and rug hook. But, that might take away from the relaxation of it. I think I'll spend the rest of the evening finishing another section of the background. I might have to dye up a little more wool to finish the entire background. I'll see how far my wool worms go.
