yesterday I showed a little peek of what's on my frame at the moment...
our baby-girl Donkey...she is a Standard, and as so has lighter coloring than Pinocchio.
I chose the wools below to hook the background...what do you think?
I am using all as-is wools (Rebecca's) and I love how textural and muted it is .
can you see the piles of wool on my table under the rug? oh yeah.....love love love.
i have a couple of cutters, but I've been enjoying the hand-cutting. It seems to create less dust (well, maybe) but definitely creates less worm-age (is that a word?)
I will be using more to hook some sheep in my next rug (or two!)
but if I do that, I might hook a darker background.
Spring Open House on April 14th here in the shop....
