Got Latchhook?


Abi

Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone else does this type of rug hooking but, I am really happy to share this wonderful piece that I just accomplished. I started working on this to try and balance myself during the aftermath of a heartbreaking divorce. Here I am, many month's later, able to show off something good that has come from such a painful time. I feel just as lost and scared as I ever did, which really is very hard to cope with, to be honest. I have my wonderful mother to thank for teaching me this art. I look up to her more than she may ever know. I could easily have spiraled out of control. Instead I have been channeling my feelings into this project.I plan to frame it and give it to my parents. This took about 80 hours and was 8400 yarn pieces. Thanks for having a look.

 This is a Cornucopia. It is often associated with Thanksgiving or fall harvest in the US. If only all the different people could come together as well. What a beautiful union of diversity and community we would have. 

 

If anyone has one to share, please do. I would love that. ❤️

That's a wonderful chef- d'oeuvre dear Abi. Indeed, it needs to be framed and enjoyed at all angles.

Thanks. I am trying to find a good framer now.

A beautiful Horn of Plenty rug.  You are talented and obviously patient to be able to accomplish this.  Take that knowledge with you as you move forward in life.  I'm sure your parents will enjoy it.  

Cheers, Jani

Thank You very much! It is difficult when you get multiple colors really close and they are not marked in the package. I am very happy with how well it turned out and have an appointment to see frame choices tomorrow. I am already working on the next one too. ~Abi~

So I finally have seen the final results of my efforts. I am really happy with how well it turned out. Here it is just before shipping it to my parents.

Beautiful!  I like that you have framed it so it can be displayed.  I'm sure they will enjoy it and think of you when they see it.

there amazing  you have a real talent there  loves to see more of your work  

I really appreciate that Alex. I am almost done with one that I will be posting in the next couple weeks probably. The one I'm starting after that is really large and may take quite a while to complete. I don't do much other than keeping busy with these. It's my meditation of sorts.?

Thanks @Susan R and @Jani. I hate to say it but there is no real talent to these other than patience and persistence. I have some days that I look at the project I'm on and wonder why I even like these things. I fear that eventually I will just have piles of these things laying around and no real use for them. I really like the overall finished product. I just wonder how I will ever justify my reasons for making them, if I don't find people to take them. I would sell them but that seems like more work than it's worth. Anyway, it will be a while before I have another one to share. My next project is the biggest I've done yet and has almost 40 colors.

Don't shortchange yourself.  Patience and persistence are certainly talents!   Not everyone possesses them!  I suppose we work on a hobby for what it gives us.  You could always sew two together and stuff with poly-fill to make pillows. Or just get some damask to leave the reverse side blank.  Make a few and donate them to a nursing home.  I'm sure they would be enjoyed.  

 

Keep working at them!

My father made rugs in a similar fashion, I still have a few dotted around the house.

 

I even made one as best I can remember, a tiger pouncing, on a red background. Don't know if I've still got it even though there are only five rooms it might still be in.

For me, it was my mother. She made me this beautiful wolf many years ago.

If you ever find time, I would love to see pictures. It is not as common of an art now that the age of graphic design and digital art have begun. I could never keep my hand steady enough to paint but the yarn is fairly forgiving. If only I had an endless supply of latch hook kits and coffee. ?

This one is by far my favorite. Love the blend of colors. Feel the same way with felting, give me felting needles, raw wool and fresh Joe or EarlGreyCoffeeTea. Quiet meditation and well spent patience. ? Great work.

Thank you very much. I was never allowed to hang the wolf when I was married. The ex was cold as ice but, when I got away and had my walls repainted, I immediately hung it up. I love it and everything my mother did for me over the years. I always looked up to my mother and she always has done her best to accept me for who I am. I wish I had been much more open with her when I was young but, the times were tough for anyone that didn't fit neatly in their assigned box. Progress. Gotta love that! Where's your felting thread? You should show some of the pieces that you enjoyed making.

? Honestly, I'm terrible at photo documenting my stuff, but did post some work, it's just a bit down the line in the thread. Plus I made many as gifts and gave them away before remembering I didn't take a photo.?Oy...me, when will I learn.

      I'm making an attempt to keep this PG, but it's a difficult subject to scratch with out discussing a Few sexual education items.   I'm getting close to when I make my decision to go on HRT or not, but one of my main concerns is weather or not I'll be able to remain intimate with my wife, we started to experiment with "toys" and I've increased the frequency I perform oral on her to prepare for potential non functioning male parts.   For those who have went through it, are you still able to use your male parts? Achieve orgasm through the old ways? Or have you moved on to butt stuff and prostate Satisfaction to compensate? My wife isn't too into the butt stuff aspect, so it could potentially be an issue down the road if that becomes the main way I can get off. Getting her off is a non issue, but in terms of weather or not I'll still be able to enjoy intimacy with her I was hoping some of you could share your expirience.

      You didn't realize that there were only 10 facts . You didn't notice that commas were used in place of apostrophe's.

      As with most people here I also fell in love with panties at an early age, I remember looking at the old sears catalog, or a victoria secret catalog that would get sent to the house and adoring the beautiful lingerie on the models. Eventually I got curious and checked if my mom owned any of these items, found some satin panties, tried them on and unlocked an inner battle I could never shake off from there.   Long story short after many years of stealing and hiding the shame, getting caught a few times and being bullied by my siblings, I moved out and I started buying my own once I figured out the correct size, still sadly purging some of the cutest lingerie I've ever owned out of shame and embarassment. currently I'm about a Male 38embarrassment. Translated to a womens 16 for most brands, theres still some weird stuff going on with those though. and I wear XL panties, sadly I'm "endowed" which can be a blessing but in terms of what I can wear in women's clothes limits me a bit, lace is fantastic, can't wear it though because I push up against it for a cheese grater type effect. Some Satin lacks stretch so I usually have to size up for that, nylon is awesome. Cotton varies.   My favorite panties for stretch and coverage currently are victoria secrets seemless line, the thong and bikini cuts are amazing, the hipsters work sometimes and I love the way they hug my cheeks but when I fall asleep in them I tend to fall out the sides. I actually was able to go in and try on some pairs on a slower weekday, you have to try them on over your current panties. But it allows you to try all the different cuts and styles avaliable.   I love nylon and satin for fabrics, and although I don't have breasts I have started to incorporate bras into my wardrobe to get used to them for when my breast might develop. The website shein.com has been great for allowing me to explore different styles without breaking the bank. I'm still pretty masculine V shaped so they carry alot of extended sized tops that I've been trying out with much success.

      Meeting with the mediator went well. All should be done by the end of July🤞. And it's filed in the one county (where my wife lives) that has the option of not having to show up in court in person, or even Zoom. Now for the name change.

      Sheena I’m right there with you.   You’re right it is comforting to have someone you feel completely safe with that affirms what you’re feeling inside.   I started buying a few articles of clothing this week and wearing them in private during the day when e regime is gone.  Now I’m researching how to do simple make up.  Yesterday I had a moment when I was in Target buying my first bra where I was so happy to find a cute one that fit me.  For a second this voice said inside of me…..don’t look now but you’re embracing being a woman.

      @Lucylux - This also might be a good time to see what different styles of bras work (or don't) for you, without forms.  The styles you favor will also likely change over time as your breasts grow.  There are an amazing variety to choose from.   Astrid

      I think there is some kind of music thing going on uptown today.  Guess I'll go check it out and try to forget all this for a bit. Happy Saturday, y'all.

      https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2022/06/roe-v-wade-dead-ending-marriage-equality-bringing-back-sodomy-laws-next/   "The lack of regard for precedent and for public opinion is a very bad sign for LGBTQ rights. Indeed, Justice Clarence Thomas all but issued an open invitation to right-wing legal activists to find cases to bring his way. In a footnote to his concurring opinion, Thomas said that in striking down the legal basis for abortion, every other decision using the same reasoning is now suspect. That includes Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized marriage equality nationally, and Lawrence v. Texas, which struck down sodomy laws. In fact, he named those decisions by name. “We should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents,” Thomas wrote. “We have a duty to ‘correct the error’ established in those precedents.” By “the error” Thomas is referring to your marriage and your right to have sex in your bedroom without being arrested. Don’t think that the right-wing lawyers who engineered today’s decision don’t recognize that invitation. They will be hunting for their next target. Thomas just supplied them."

      My first experience with therapy was with someone who had little to no knowledge about transgender issues or how to address them. Early on after many sessions she had me see a colleague who put me on anti depressants.  That did not go well for me. They turned me into a zombie. I discontinued them and soon after stopped seeing that therapist. I think because she didn't understand she figured it was just severe depression.
