Many of you know that I have been working on an owl rug to go on the wall of my spare bathroom. Well he is finished except for the limb that goes at the bottom..I didn't plan on collecting owls but on a yahoo group we had a swap for making fabric owls..So when I made one for my swap partner, I made me one as well and then I went on to hook one..2 of my sweet daughter-in-Loves caught on and began to buy me owls. One even gave me an owl teapot..(I'm an avid tea fan)..So I put most of the owl things in my spare bathroom so now it is my Owl room. I told them not to get me anymore owls..I still collect gnomes for outside so they still continue to gift me with them.
Another note...I took the owl rug and the sunflower rug (seen on my page) to an art guild meeting today. They were switching out paintings and other artwork in their store like they always do every quarter...they wanted me to hang them in their store. So I have brought the paperwork home to fill out on the sunflower rug and will be taking it back up there in a couple of weeks..Now since I've never sold a rug before, I am at a dilemma of what to price it for. It is 24 x30 and was told many years ago to charge $50 a square foot...not sure that it is the same today..and there are lots of hand dyed wools in it..so hopefully some other rug hookers can help me out.
And another note along the line of rug hooking..I decided sparkpeople needed a new forum for rug hookers..so I set one up...I'm only member so far..hahahaha...
It's been a good day.
