What a Difference a Day Makes

What a difference a day makes. Or maybe it was two or three days. But ever since I made my pronouncement that rug hooking would be my priority for the next month, I have been hooking steadily, and have even surprised myself with the progress I have made.

Here’s the rug so far:

A few rug hooking secrets: where the fish change colors from pink to yellow to pale green? That is one strip of wool that I dyed that way. I can manipulate where I start and stop the strip, but otherwise its all in the wool. The same with the “shading” in the far ocean. The wool was dyed from dark to light blue. The poor fishies still need eyes. I just have to make myself do it.

So now “all” I have to do is finish the rocks in the third portion and do the sky and stars–it will be a night sky. And THEN I have to figure out how to do the border, which will have the words to the Psalm that inspired the design:

Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!

Let the fields and their crops burst out with joy!

Let the trees of the forest rustle with praise

before the Lord, for he is coming!
