I hooked this guy as I often do with my original designs. I just put my backing fabric on the frame and draw. I usually only have some of my idea in my head when I start and then it just evolves as I start hooking. I decided to do his face in my favorite Hit or Miss style using all kinds of orangey wools,textured, hand dyed,and as is. At 1st my plan was for it to be a little table rug or chair pad,but when it was finished, he called out to me to be a pillow. So pillow Jack became,with vintage tweed wool hand sewn on the back and completely stuffed with wool.
The pillow is up for auction on my eBay and if you'd like you can take a closer look by clicking on my eBay banner over there on your right. And if you do go to my auctions,please take a look at the other items that I have for sale. Thank You!!!
BTW things are still piled up from my closet the way my Dear Friend,Marcia put them as I showed in the pictures of my last post. No one has magically turned up to fix the closet shelf!!! Yesterday afternoon Marcia called to see if I'd like some company. No question about that,ABSOLUTELY!!!! But she had an ulterior motive and she KNEW if she told me,I'd say NO,ABSOLUTELY NOT. She came to start cleaning for me!!!! She did a few other things,but her goal for the day was to get both bathrooms cleaned. Now THAT'S a GREAT FRIEND!!!! I was embarrased that I couldn't do it,but VERY VERY appreciative!!!!
Today would have been my 47th anniversary.
Thanks for stopping by!!!!
