More Rugs ~

Today was the start of my three day weekend.  I was going to accomplish miracles, but that didn't happen.  Why am I not surprised?  Tomorrow will be busy ~ I get to take my favorite redhead to an Easter egg hunt in the morning and then to Eggland in the afternoon.  Luckily I'm not cooking on Easter Sunday and don't even have to bring anything.
* * * * *
Here are a few more rugs from the rug show at Punderson.  I have more pictures but the colors are just too poor to post.  Stop by Andrea's blog to see more ~ and her pics are so much better than mine :)  

This rug is breathtaking!  So much detail!  Exquisite hooking.

Remind me to NEVER wear plaid britches!

Progress has been made on Auntie Peanut.  I've never hooked a face before so I've been a bit leery to even try this one but I must very soon!  The background hooked lighter than I thought it would, but I will learn to love it (and if I don't tell the recipient she will never know I had planned on something a little different).

Here's Annie just a few minutes ago sprawled out on the hooking room couch.  If she's not in the same room with me, she's generally doing something she shouldn't be doing!  Furbabies can be so much like little kids :)

Hugs and Happy Easter :)

  16. Happy Easter, Lauren! Thank you for sharing so many great rug seeing them.

    The pix from your last post are wonderful, esp. the bunnies...they are adorable!!

  17. I have been very remiss in looking at everyone's blog. First was busy Easter Sunday at my son's and with my grandson, then yesterday and then had an order for a rug kit which I didn't have prepared so had the drawing and cutting of wool to do. Then take to post office and today to sit while the oil got changed in my car.

    Love the rug show you provided for us.


  18. OMG, I completely forgot to mention what a great job you are doing on Auntie Peanut. Guess I'm going in too many direction and can't keep clear thought process.



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