I've been trying to design my childhood memories rug and every time I start at it it seems that I'm spinning in one place and not getting ahead, I have all my ideas but it's to draw them that I'm having a bit of difficulties. What am I saying,? I'm having a LOT of difficulties. If only I could draw from memory instead of having a model in front of me. I break into a sweat just thinking about it. My problem is I like things to look real and I should loosen up.
I used to have a friend neighbor who was a sculptor and could draw beautiful drawings, If he was still alive I would pay him to draw my rugs. He would have been able to draw whatever I wanted. He was a really gifted self taught artist.
I have my burlap cut to a fairly large size for my rug and can't wait to get hooking. I don't have hookers blocks but I sure have designer's blocks. I have a lots of items to add on there and once I zig zag the edges I'm hooking something, anything. Sorry folks, no pictures tonight. I'm pulling the little bit hair I have left. JB
