For you longtime blog friends, you may remember this rug. For whatever reason, this rug took me 11 1/2 months to hook and at least another 6 to 8 months before I put the binding on. Since then, it has been rolled up in a basket. I finally got my DSO to hang it for me over the head of my bed. I love it there! And of course, the rug colors are much more muted in person :)
How many of you remember the dark pine that was SO popular back in the 70's? The bed is the only piece I have left of the set.
Another rug I finally hung in the guest room. It is a Woolley Fox pattern, Berks County Floral, I think it is called. I started in at the 2011 ATHA biennial. And once again, much more muted in person, especially the dark background.
Can you believe I've already sewn the binding on my Magdalena style rug? I hooked it for the dining room table, but I'm not sure if that's where it will end up.
Bound in wool to match the last row of hooking. I really do love this rug! Only one rug left to bind. I'm on a roll here, but don't have anything on the frame at the moment. That needs to change soon!
A few pictures from around the yard. I'd say that's one well fed robin.
$5 begonia from Home Depot . . .
. . . and my $5 geranium. Notice all the missing flower heads? It has to be deer eating them.
I think I paid $3 for this tricycle at a resale shop a few years ago and got a .50 basket from Goodwill.
The foxglove are not doing too good this year.
Coreopsis . . .
The hydrangea are starting to bloom and are just loaded with buds.
I still have not heard from two of the winners in my 4 year anniversary give-away. I will be picking new winners if I don't hear from you before my next post.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
