~ Wednesday Morning Musings ~

 Hello Friends and Folk!
...and a happy chilly almost-Christmas Wednesday to you all ~

I am HOOKING! 
oh yes I am ~ finally, the wool dust isn't bothering my eyes and nose 
as much as it was post-recent-surgeries..
woot woot!


i'm sure you all know how much I love purple ~ anything...
a color that has been my very favorite since childhood.
 

i thought i would draw up a chairpad design 
~ and use up some of my many purple wools in it. 
I cannot tell you how different colors look to me now! 
I am amazed and surprised at color now, even more so than ever before ~


since I'm not taking any chances with the wool dust though, i'm trying to keep it to a minimum by simply hand-cutting my strips using spring-loaded Fiskar scissors...
hand cutting one strip at a time, while hooking is a slow, but peaceful way of working too ~
 as well as keeps my worm baskets from overflowing from too many cut but not used strips!

some of my strips are 8's {1/4"}, some are smaller or larger.
some are 6's up to 8's all in one strip! ha!

~ but just look at the old-fashioned way they hook up:


 I am diligently working on a slew of new rug designs
 for the upcoming Woolwright's Spring Hook In

my favorite chair, in my favorite spot in our Keeping Room
is where you will be finding me ~ snug as a bug hooking a rug!



 OH! and, come join the woolly-fun over at my

  4. Your purple heart is delightful! Glad you are back hooking and more glad your eyes aren't bothering you as much, albeit having to hand cut wool one piece at a time.

    And, thanks for the honor of gracing your blog with my vintage Santa and Deer adaptation.
