Summertime in St Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick
I have been busy on several Wednesday evenings lately, so I am missing my Quoddy Looper 'fix'--it is lovely to get together and see what each of the others is working on, might have finished or is planning to start. Hopefully some of the other members will have photos of their rugs for me to post. These two are ones I've done to satisfy a challenge - a semi-abstract (above, left) and what I call a fall colour study (right) - an effort at impressionism. I have quite a ways to go, and will likely do another few such studies. It's a great way to use up leftover woolly worms. Both mats are on primitive linen, #6 to 8 cuts. The colour study used up the last of my shaving cream dyed wool (left); time to get the dye pots out!
