Pattern for Nelda.....
My good friend and hooking buddy Nelda, asked me to design her a pattern for a camp she is going to next month.She had a picture of a shirt that she liked and it had paisley all over it.She wanted it 30 ins.by 60ins. which is the biggest rug I have designed so far.She also hooks in a 9 cut most of the time.
Well, two days and 4sharpies later I have a pattern that I hope she will like it.I know she will not be able to do all the little designs with a 9 cut but I wanted to make it so someone working in a smaller cut would have details to work on.
As I was working on this design I have started thinking of how I would do it.I have not ever hooked a rug this big but I think I will start color planning it so I can.
Here is Nelda hooking out-of-her box, she is using a 3 cut.
I am a Wife,Mom,and Nana.I have been married to a banjo picker for 31 years.Yes,I have the patience of "Job".I am the Mother of two and the Nana to a 7 year old boy and a 2 year old baby girl named Auna that are the light of my life.I am a fiber artist,rug hooker and needle felter.
I think the world would be a better place if every person on it would spend a little time everyday making art.My new motto is "Make Art Not War". God was the first artist and boy was he good.
I am also now spending time in Springfield,Il.
