Loopie Lucy's Adventures in Rughooking

Loopie Lucy's Adventures in Rughooking

Cat from Scarf?

I realized that I had to mirror image the cat so it can be in the proper corner of the couch.
I am now using the values that I have dyes and almost have most of the face done. The body will go easier and them to the background.
My sisters couch is a primitive gold color so I am thinking that I will put a nice primitive dark red background behind the grey cat.....that is what I am thinking right now but that can change at any thought.

I decided to make my sister a memory rughooked pillow of her cat Angelica who went over the rainbow a year or so ago. Annette says sometimes she thinks she still hears her in the house. This pillow will sit in the same spot that Angelica sat for 12 years and will be a nice reminder and surprise.
I don't have to worry about her reading my blog as she has no interest in rughooking or what I do, lol.
Anyway I started with a recycled scarf and thought I would like to do the whole cat with it but due to the amount of wasted color I will not have enough so I am starting over with some values that I dyed using my Easy Wooly Mason Jar Color Wheel swatch recipe cards.
I think this will be much easier for me!

Check out the system that
I have developed and am
 working with.

I'm back!

Hello Everyone, I keep trying to post and get errors so heres hoping.

Last week I brought my Mom to a beautiful little Private Nursing/Special Care home and she is settled in a seems to be happy. I have sorted though her life of possesions and closed up her appartment and am now able to have time to myself again.

I haven't been able to keep up here but will try to catch up and participate again.

I will try to submit some photos of projects that I have been doing to pass time.

Multiply won't let me copy and paste this message so I hope this works.
