"Lovely" is what Katie will say when she sees "our" rug. I say "our" rug because Katie hooked the water in about 2 minutes flat! That woman can HOOK! I think the colors are even brighter in person if you can imagine me hooking with such colors. I am getting near the end. You know the old adage, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." That is how I am hooking this rug. I make myself spend 15-20 minutes a day working on it and I am nearing completion. The next time you see it, it will be d-o-n-e! It has definitely been a learning experience.
I've also hooked another pumpkin with hand torn strips and hope to complete two more. I need a couple gifts and I think the recipients will like them.
Here is the textured wool I used. I adore textured wools. The pumpkin is about 12" x 13" and took almost a half yard of wool, and that does not include the wool that I will back it with.
Thanks to Julia and my dear friend Wink for looking up information about the pumpkin on a stick from my last past. It is actually an ornamental eggplant. Whodda thunk that? Go HERE for more information or to purchase seeds.
It is a rainy, chilly day here on Ohio's north coast. There is an annual outdoor fall antique/craft festival the first full weekend of October that has been going on for decades. You can always count on the weather being lousy! Thankfully when I went yesterday the rain had stopped and the sun came out for a bit. I was one of the lucky ones who did not get stuck in the muddy field ~ aka the parking lot.
I was glad to find a bunch of teaspoons in one booth. A little more than I like to spend, but I was thankful to get them for what I did. Lots more spoon jewelry to help support my habit :)
I also got a cheesy, plastic light up Santa. He needs a bath and a new light cord, but for a dollar I couldn't pass him up!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
Pug hugs :)
