Rug Hooking Diary...Wonderland Begins to Take Form


I'm sure enjoying working on this little piece! It's stretching my abilities & I see many small changes I'll want to make before it's done but I love the design.
I'm using a #7 cut for most of the hooking, a #6 cut for some of the detail and have hand cut a few narrow strips.
Susan asked about my directional hooking of the snow....I'm trying to make it look as if there are large drifts of new snow on the roof and trees. We'll see how successful the attempt is as more hooking is done.
Sometimes I feel like I'm hanging my dirty laundry out here for you all to see......the more I look at this photo, the more wierd things I see that need changing!

Your rug looks wonderful--I don't see where you have to change a thing. Just keep doing what you are doing and it will come out great.

Marita...your wool is so lovely it makes "painting" with wool so much easier. This pattern really shows off your snow colors. I enjoy the contrast of the darker value cabin.
I'm looking forward to the trees!
