Only three members were present in February, and three plus a lovely young guest in March.
As I said, life has gotten in the way with some of us having other appointments for the day and a trip to the Philippines for myself at short notice.
I- Chris, had a spot of bother with the border of my 'Tehran' oriental rug. You know how it is, you get so far and all of a sudden you are stuck, a mind block? I had tried several colour combinations, but needed the combined creative talents of my rug hooking friends. Luckily Joy and Anne came to the party. Joy had me trace the relevant area and colour it in with coloured pencils in the suggested colour combinations already used in other parts of the rug. This worked perfectly. I now have a 9" x 6" area of the border completed and I am quite happy with the result. I feel that this will work well all the way around the rug and fit in with the central area. I highly recommend anyone hooking a large rug to do this exercise. It certainly beats pulling out and re-hooking until you have it right.
We also discussed booking a stall at the Stitches and Craft Show in October at Jeff's Shed in Melbourne, but in the meantime there are lots of other things to do.
Well, my friends, before we knew it, it was time to leave again, although it was hard, as we had a lot of catching up to do.
I promise to come back soon and add to the Blog. Cheers :)
