WooHoo!! I finished my Big Fish rug. This is the rug I mentioned a couple posts back...the one that was giving me a fit. Once I gave into the rug it came with a bit more ease. I still reversed hooked a couple places more than once, but I got her done.
The inspiration for this pattern came from a reproduction bone box I own. I changed it to meet my needs or should I say my wants. The whale makes me smile. I think it turned out pretty good for being hooked between 1:00 am & 4:00 am. My 13 yr old beagle, Miss Beezley, is afraid of thunder and we were hiding in the wool room so I hooked.
I guess I'll dig out the sewing machine and zip zag the edges and start whipping it. Tonight is looking like a good night for a movie and some whipping.
Here's an Irish blessing for you......
|A Wish for a Friend|
|Wishing you a rainbow|
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
