It was a snowy, sunny drive over to Belfast. The rolling hills provided beautiful wintery vistas. As I crossed Plymouth pond I had to stop in the middle of the bridge to take a picture of the ice fishing shanties; as I was struck immediately with an idea for rug hooking design.
I will sketch it out with water colors; but I can see a very narrow wall hanging for this one. The sun was in my face for the morning shot...on my way back I pulled off in the turn out to take a few more pics.
The wind was plowing across the pond; you can see the snow being kicked up.
Now I will need to start collecting winter whites, grays and blues for all that snow.
I had such a terrific time visiting and stitching with Patti. Funny thing... We are stitching the same project, have same first name, same type of job just different industries and we've both been in Maine for the same length of time. Oh and we both have hound dogs. Hahaha. I truly enjoyed our conversations while we stitched by the window soaking up some good sunshine. Well the sun chased me around the table, but I was grateful for the rays to brighten these gray winter days. We have a couple more months before we feel the sweetness of spring.
We both made some nice progress on our Christmas at HRH;
she's working hers over two and I am working mine over one.
It was fun to see them together and the size difference.
I hope to be much further along at our next visit...I have some catching up to do.
I've been working on it during a few lunch breaks this week; progress is progress. I put a few loops in my whale last night. I am playing with my sky. First I had defined clouds but I pulled those out. I was perusing the hooked rug images on the web for inspiration and I found a sky that I really like. We will see how it goes. Hope to share some updates this weekend. It's taken me all week to post this one. :)
Keep on Stitching and Hooking.
