I finished my antique dog and cat rug. (The e-pattern can be found at WoolnSails and I took it to Staples and had it enlarged.) I just have to work on the cat's eyes a bit. I've added it to the "hooked but need to be bound pile". That makes rug #6. Proof positive that I despise binding. I did buy Kris Miller's finishing book, so maybe I will try a new technique instead of my usual binding tape method. I really want to try the crocheted edge. I must get busy, though and finish Auntie Peanut before the end of the month to give as a birthday gift. That pattern can be found at Woodland Junction. Saundra is just a sweetheart ~ and so talented. You won't be disappointed in her offerings!
I've only made a little progress on Henny Penny. (The shamrocks in the corners are a much more muted orange/rust.)
I've decided I better put her aside for a while and hook up a couple small mats. I started hooking the horse in an 8 cut since the legs and tail are quite skinny. I haven't hooked with an 8 for some time and I feel like I am hooking with thin spaghetti! I am switching to at least an 8.5 as soon as I finish the last leg.
I am approaching a couple blogging milestones ~ post #500 and my 3 year anniversary. For someone who really thought she had nothing to say, I've managed to do a lot of blathering. Thank you so much for stopping by, reading what I have to say and leaving such sweet comments. I have met some of the most wonderful people, some only through blogging and emails and some in person. It is appreciated more than you will ever know. In honor of all my blogging friends, I will be having a couple give-aways in the near future.
Pug hugs :)
