Dear Diary, After an overwhelming response today from people who are interested in hooking people I have decided to try to offer the course in Mid March after Wild with Wool. I have been looking closely at the People rugs I have hooked over the years and one that stands out for me is Standing Before the Monument. It is a beautiful rug. I think I will use it as the title picture for the course. Every time I look at it, I think, “My goodness, you made that.” That is the thing about making art. When we look at what we made sometimes we are lucky and it surprises us.
This only happens once in a while but when it does you really hang on to that feeling for a long time. It is a feeling you savour.
Today in the studio we had fifteen new shelves come in. They are all white squares so that we can display our wools and yarns better. After a year or two of improving our yarn selection, we have now started improving our cloth selection and wanted the right shelves to display it better. Brenda and Lorna and I lugged all afternoon and left the studio in a terrible mess. We’ll go back at it tomorrow. We love changing things around but fifteen shelves is a heft project. We are all tired tonight I am sure.
Remember tomorrow is our Fibre Arts Group, come if you can, 10 am to 2pm…….
