I can't believe I've been home from rug camp for a month. This is what my rug looked liked when I left camp, and I'm sorry to say this is what it still looks like today :( I have not even pulled one loop, but I hope that will change this evening! (The colors are a bit washed out in the picture.)
I have been hooking ~ having a ball hooking pumpkins with hand torn strips. I've hooked five of them. These are about 13" wide and 12" tall with the stem. Now if I will just finish them "Betsy style" before fall . . . sigh. I'm just not very good with the finishing part.
I still have my Annie. Quite a few events are coming up and hopefully she will find her furever family! How could you not love this face?
Another week is almost over and August is coming to an end. I am sitting here scratching my head wondering how that happened!
Last evening I met Lee from Falling Star Primitives. I had bought a couple of her cross stitch patterns at "In the Spirit of Friends" show at Malabar Farm in years past, but I guess we had really not "met". We live about an hour apart and decided to meet for dinner. It was like getting together with an old friend! What an enjoyable time we had. She is a pattern designer, cross stitcher, rug hooker, does wool applique (wool appliquer?), etc. Check out her website for some great patterns! I swapped one of my necklaces for a couple of her patterns. I think I got the better end of the deal :) She also gave me some really cool notecards ~ photos of some of her stitcheries.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
