I started this footstool at “Rugs on the Rocks” in Maine with Kim Nixon as my teacher.
My husband, Kenny, drew the design loosely based on design elements from a floor in a casino in Las Vegas, “Wynn”.
These are the brightest colors I've hooked to date. We're not talking Crayola colors....we're talking neon markers! I must confess that dyeing these bright colors and working with them makes me very happy.
Do these colors "go" anywhere in my current decorating scheme? Nope, not one bit, but that can always change :)
I still have quite a bit to hook, but I think if I buckle down and work on one panel every night I should be able to get this finished by next week. I’m feeling determined! Plus, now that the weather is cooling off, it makes hooking more enjoyable. Sitting on the couch, dogs snoozing at your feet, rug on your lap, pulling loops and watching an old movie....sounds like a day of heaven.
Here is an overall picture of the rug:
The top, I love the star....the duller yellow in the center makes the outer yellow shine.
As you can see….not all that much to hook to finish it up….I’d best get cracking!
