It's been a while since I've done any rug hooking. In fact, not since last winter have I picked up a hook and pulled. One of my New Years resolution was to 'get hooking' again!
And so....today I pulled out some linen backing and decided to draw something to hook. I've always used purchased patterns and kits so drawing this design myself is something quite new!
I started drawing the border making sure to keep the lines straight on the grain. I think I did ok but we shall see when I start hooking.
I drew this cute primitive sheep in the middle. Mostly freehand but traced the main part of the body. Not too bad I guess.
I stopped there for now but will most likely add a beauty line, a vine or something like that to soften the edges. Was feeling pretty good that I got this far and didn't mess up!!
Phew....one resolution I haven't broken yet!!
