Just finished this rug! I was initially thinking of hooking a fish tree, but it looked rather bare so needed to add some apples to zip it up a bit. ...but may still do a fish tree. Yes!, fish is very much on my brain...stay tuned for "Lady Walking Fish".
Didn't get a chance to see the show last night? No worries, the weather outside was a tad frightful. The entire show is on line at www.argylefineart.com and look for the Apple Tree!!! by your favourite hooker.
I have been hooking a lot of woman wearing black lately..not sure why..just seems to work. I drew a woman with a dead fish on her lap, as well as a woman pushing a fish in a baby stroller. ..I think I will put them in black dresses as well. The imagination is a wonderful thing!...and so are black dresses.
Hooking a 4x5" piece is a bit of challenge as I use a wide-cut and loosely woven burlap. But I did it! I went down to a 6 cut and used lots of sari-yarn and I was able to get some more detail. So, I 'll keep my fingers crossed that this piece is accepted and in the show.
