Here is Little Bit taking a nap on the nice clean quilt I just put in the bed. This is the spare room and the cats do think it is there room! The quilt is a bit bright for my taste but Neil's Grandmother made it and it really has never been used. Why am I not using it I thought as like everything it will age with use. The colors will be coming duller with washings and cat hair!
This is how I feel about my hooking. I don't use this bright of colors but I don't want them too dull either. The early rugs were not usually made with dull drab colors. They used what they had and since they were wanting to make a little something to bring warmth and color into their homes they were brighter. When we find the antiques today they are usually quite fade. A peek between the loops or on the back can ofter reveal the colors of yesterday.
Hooked face cats I made several years ago are waving so long for now!
