New on my Frame ~

I've decided to take a break from my What Nots rug and work on something for fall.  This is a pattern from Cathy G over at Orange Sink.  The pattern can be found here.  The pattern is about 10" x 20" and is a fun one to hook.  (As always, the colors, especially the flower petals, are more muted in person!)

Today, in Oberlin, Ohio, was a rescue event called the Doggie Do.  Annie and I spent the day there and she is totally worn out.  She is like a little kid trying so hard to keep her eyes open.  She was using one of her toys as a pillow.

I actually sold one of my pumpkins :)  If my memory hasn't failed me (and it has that tendancy), it is the first hooked piece that I have ever sold.  Thanks, Jan, you made my day!

Don't forget to sign up for my give-away.  I will pick a winner tomorrow evening.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
