Unspun fun continues this week. Same material, different application!
I have a locker hook (or two) that I acquired a couple years ago at the Jonasson Farm fall fleece sale (back in the pre-Covid days when people actually got together for things like that). Linda Jonasson was making really gorgeous rugs from their roving, and I thought that I might want to give it a try sometime.
So here we are in “sometime”. (Guess the idea had to percolate for a while)
I really love the springy, cushy texture of the loops, and the idea of being able to draft patterns and create unique designs on the fly. So I set about finding myself some backing material,
In a very short time I was able to find someone nearby who had a stash of burlap bags they were willing to trade for wool-
So now I’m all set on that front! Hope to make a start this week. Perhaps with something small first, like a chair pad or something.
And in hoophouse news-we had some really good weather this long weekend, and were able to get a fair bit of building done- hiprails, baseboards, purlins and peak braces are now in place.
I’m so excited- It’s really coming together. Next up, endwall framing-
