Magdalena Style Rug

Magdalena Style rug:

 

   CREATURE COMFORTS,   THIS  WAS, OR SHOULD I SAY IS A FUN RUG TO WORK ON. NOT FINISHED YET. IT HAS BEEN A RUG THAT IS PLANNED AS I HAVE WORKED IT, ONLY USING SCRAP WOOLS FROM BOXS IN STORGE. QUICKLY DRAWN WITH ANIMALS AND FLORA THAT I ENJOY AND ARE A PART OF MY EVERY DAY LIFE.

     MOST OF THE STRIPS HAVE BEEN CUT BY HAND IN WIDTHS FROM 3/4 OF AN INCH TO ABOUT AN 8. THEY ALL WORK AND WHEN I HAVE A SMALL SPACE I JUST HOOK THE LOOP SIDEWAYS TO FILL AN OPENING, MAKING SURE ALL LOOPS ARE SNUGGLING WITH ANOTHER FOR STURDY LOOPS.

     SOMETIMES WHEN WORKING WITH A FOLK ART STYLE RUG, ONE NEEDS TO FORGET ALL THAT THEY KNOW AND “JUST DO IT”. DON’T THINK TOO MUCH. RIGHT WALTER? LOL

     DRAW A SIMPLE PATTERN VERY CHILDLIKE WITH SOMETHING FROM THE HEART AND GO TO YOUR LEFTOVERS, CUT AND HOOK! HOW EASY DOES IT GET. BEGINNERS ARE VERY  ADEPT AT DOING FOLK ART AS THEY DO NOT HAVE TO UNDO ALL THE HAVE TO’S AND RULES WHICH BOG US DOWN.

     I AM LEARNING A LOT ABOUT JUST LETTING GO AND ENJOYING, FORGET ALL THE RULES AND DO WHAT YOU WANT. I THINK WHEN WE ARE ALL BUT ABOUT DONE IN THIS LIFE WE WILL NOT BE SORRY FOR WHAT WE DID, BUT WHAT WE DID NOT DO. 

     SO ALL OF YOU HOOKERS JUST RELAX AND ENJOY YOUR ART AND FIND THE CREATIVE SIDE THAT IS IN ALL OF US!  ENJOY!!
