And I must confess, it was one of the most entertaining backgrounds I have ever hooked. I guess changing colours with each strip kept it interesting. I couldn't wait to see what the different sections of negative space would look like. Nothing boring about it!
A little chippie sneaked into the upper left hand corner yesterday morning. It was looking empty and I realized that I had forsaken him for those fish - so I was happy he arrived. And then I took my hooking outside and finished all the rest of it. It was a glorious Labour Day, with a perfect breeze and I got to see and hear all the goings on, while sitting there in hooking heaven.
I went back to my Magdalena book to plan my finish, and it seems that a simple whip is all that she did - if that. So I will trim and roll and whip as time permits in the next while.
Today, my September brain is being re-inserted. You know the one you use for organizing work, teaching, traveling and all the things that you haven't used for most of the summer. I think incoming company, grocery lists and LCBO requirements use a totally different part. I sure hope the kick start works, because my Inbox filled all weekend - I guess everyone is feeling the same. Time to get back to "life".
Anyway, hope everyone had a great weekend. Here's to a smooth re-entry for all of us into the real world.
