"View from My Window" is now all completed except for the final blocking and steaming. I must say and I know you all have heard this before, this was a delightful project.

From the idea grown from our group project, it incorporated a few items that we all wanted to work on; a building, a tree, some flowers, an animal and we wanted to use alternative fibres.

I did use wool yarn, wool slub, wool strips and t shirt material but I did not like the t shirt material. I would use again but only sparingly.

P and I moved my Cheticamp frame along with the next large project onto the deck as I will work on it that way. If it stays in the rec room, it will sit untouched until the fall.


  1. Congrats Julie on a marvelous finish to your beautiful rug! I love the sky in particular but the whole rug is awesome! Can't wait to see the next project..... it must be large! Are you using wool strips or yarn on this next one?
    I have never hooked with T shirt material and am wondering what it's like. I think I am too spoiled with wool LOL!
