Sunday Wonders - H

H is for Hook. 


This hook was on fire a few years ago.  I used it so much that the varnish has worn off where my fingers held it.  But the fire's been banked for what was only going to be a few months and has turned into years .  Today, the sun is shining and it's cold.  A perfect hooking day.


So, hook plus frame...


Add a blank (almost) canvas...


A box of random worms...


Put some classical music on the player and let's see what happens.  I hope I can remember how to do it. I  actually have that fear.  You'll be the first to know if the fire has burned too low.   And maybe, if this works I can get Katie's mat going.  It's been on hold too long.

I can't wait to see it!!! I don't know if I have seen any of your hooking, and if it's like your knitting, we are in for a real treat!

My hook has been in hibernation so long, it might require CPR to revive. I'll bet it all came right back to you! Look forward to seeing what you make! blessings ~ tanna

How lovely! I have a smile on my face just imagining the creativity and relaxation from your project while listening to Mozart.

I can't wait to see it! I know it's going to be fabulous! I listen to classical when I'm working on something. It helps keep me focused.

Excited to see it! I have a hook like that (but finer, I think) in a box somewhere, probably the attic. I remember her using it to make a wallhanging, and there was velvet fabric involved. I did try it, and it was one of the very few crafts she did that I couldn't make head or tail of. Is it difficult or is it just me> Certainly wouldn't know where to start now!

How wonderful that you're stoking the fire. Isn't it funny how we go in and out of various creative efforts? Last year I was water colour painting. This year all that's put away in drawers and I'm looking through the camera lens and making pasta. I love the heart at the centre and am confident that whichever colours you use the result will be beautiful.
