Long, Long Time

The past winter has been very hard on me, and I haven't really gotten much done.  Almost recovered now, and I have decided to pursue my dream of a rug hooking of a tree--big--and then add onto it later, with branches and leaves that go up onto the ceiling and across the walls.
When I found this design by Lib Callaway, I knew it was the perfect starting point.  At 39" by 60", big enough to depict what I want, yet not over power my living room, where it will hang.

 I am not rushing, working sometimes only 15 minutes a day, but I am REALLY enjoying this!  I am making changes as I go along, to better depict the plants and birds and critters that we live with. Yesterday, I got to the top of the tree!

 So far we are having a very cool spring, so I am content to work on this--when it gets really hot, I will take a break--no fun sitting under a wool rug when it's 90 degrees!


  1. I love this rug! You always amaze me with all of your talents.

    And in case you didn't know, it's me Bama/Carolyn. I finally got another blogger blog several weeks ago. :o)

  2. I hope this finds you feeling even better. You're doing a beautiful job on the new wall hanging!
