This has been a slow process for me...learning as I go with my share of 'goof ups'.
Actually, I think I am allergic to this burlap (am using it 'cause my Grama used it) and she was always an inspiration to me.
After about 10 to 15 minutes of hooking
my eyes begin to burn and water.
Sounds like allergies to me.
I know I am hooking too tight
(after doing some research on various tutorials),
but that is part of the learning curve...right?
Also, if you look closely, the dark strips have a lot of loose threads
that seem to be a problem for me...or is it just me?
So now I am seriously thinking of making this smaller.
The size of my foot rest top is 9" x 17".
Perhaps 7" x 15" or so, thus giving me a
1" to 1 1/2" border all around. Sounds good to me.
Don't think I will continue using this burlap after this project.
That means finding another suitable backing
for the primitive look and feel that I love.
I am open for suggestions.
Any HELP will be greatly appreciated.
