Hookin' at the Farm

Once again, I've inadvertently deleted my rug photo from the end of my post, so here it is at the beginning. I've heard from a few other bloggers and I'm happy to know that I'm not the only one who sometimes has this problem :)
As promised, this is the progress I've made on my rug. I am beginning to think there may be a light at the end of the tunnel that is not a freight train. I mean, come on, I've only been working on this since March. How pathetic is that?
Last night was hookin' down on the farm, That'll Do Farm. Andrea so graciously had a needle felt project for us. Here she is hard at work. I think she was taking her aggressions out on that poor little pumpkin!
Jane on the left and Farmer Gal on the right busily working.
Okay, so I got lazy and did not make a pumpkin, but Andrea, being the gracious hostess that she is, gave me one to take home. Isn't it just as cute as can be?
Heidi hookin' away...
...and the rug. It's kind of hard to tell, but it's her fantasy bird. Heidi loves the bright colors and puts them together so well.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I love hearing from you!
Pug hugs :)


  1. You are almost done with your rug!! It looks great. Happy Halloween!

  2. Lauren, loving that horse rug, can't wait to see it finished.

  3. Lauren,
    Would you believe that as a former rider, I am just finishing up my first horse rug? Yours is wonderful and much bigger than mine. Isn't it a Barb Carroll design?


  4. Oh your rug is wonderful it looks like a nice old rug. I love the pumpkin and have needle felted a little. I sometimes think that I spread myself to thin on crafts. But you seem to get it all done. I too am having a hard time with blogger lately. have a great weekend

  5. LOVE the horse rug!!! Ride em cowgirl!! I would love to learn how to felt one of these days if I ever have time!!

  6. Lauren, your horse rug looks fantstic! You are almost there, hang in there. What's next?

  7. Your horse rug is looking good! Lovely antique colors!
    The needle-felted pumpkins are really cute. I like the end result, but it's not my favorite thing.
    Thanks for the surprise in the mail!
    I love it!!!

  8. Love that horse rug, Lauren! You should be finished hooking it by Sunday! I can feel it! LOL! ;-) Heidi's rug is looking great too, and I'm not one for bright colors either. She does that so well!

  9. Your rug is looking great, I don't even want to imagine how long it would take me to do one. I can't wait to see it when you get it finished.

  10. Way to go Lauren, almost finished with the horse rug. Looking good. I love the little pumpkin. Needle felting is something I haven't tried yet. Not enough time in my days!

  11. Lauren - What a fun group of gals you meet with - and I love the projects that they're all working on! Your horse rug should be done soon - I'll have to try my hand at that needle felting! My arm/shoulder is finally feeling a little better so I'm hoping that I can get back to hooking soon - I sure do miss it! Thanks for all the pictures!

  12. What a variety to look at! Love your rug, and so close to being done!. Will be on my list of rugs to do one day!
    Love all the projects!

  13. Great job Lauren! Love your rug! Looks like a fun night! Happy Halloween! (:

  14. I found your blog quite by accident, but I'm sure glad I did. I can't lie, I'd stop by just to see that cute little face at the top of the page, but the rugs. I started hooking about a year ago and have completed quite a few small projects. I am overwhelmed by your gorgeous rugs.


Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog. Your comments are much appreciated :)
