I've been really consistent in keeping up with the 10-minute challenge. This is a pattern called "Water Nymph" that I must have started over ten years ago and had about 1/5 done. I kept trying to get the background darker and in so doing ended up felting the wool too much so it was very difficult to pull through the burlap. To top it off, I was using a #6 cut which is HUGE for me. I remembered that I had bought a Hartman hook back at Cape May so I dug that out and voila! It was much easier to do. Now that it's done, I kind of like this rug!
I am a Unity minister (nope, that's not the same as Unitarian or Unification) who loves rug hooking and many other traditional handcrafts. My husband Takashi is a computer technician and he makes me laugh just about every day. We have a son, Dante, who is an incredible human being and attends University of Oregon.We are all owned by two dachshunds named Sasuke and Jasmine (and yes, she is a princess). Home is the beautiful southern Oregon Coast.
