The Fat Lady Sings ~

"They" say it ain't over until the fat lady sings. Well, she's finally singing.  Here are the last of the rugs from Sauder Village.  Enjoy the show.

Two of my favorite patterns



This rug is so moving ~ and hearbreaking.

I've loved this pattern for a long time.  Triple Crown aka Pearl and Earl by Lucille Festa of American Country Rugs.  The pattern on linen now resides with many others that I someday hope to hook.

I hope you have enjoyed the rug shows.  There were many more rugs but I did not get pictures of all of them.
Thanks so much for stopping by.

Pumpkins ~

I'll give you a break today from Sauder pictures, though I do have more to share.  Just thought I'd show what I've been up to.  Let me just say, I am NOT, I repeat, NOT one of those folks longing for fall.  It's beginning to feel like fall.  It sounds like fall.  Leaves are beginning to turn and some have already fallen.  I am longing for June!  It doesn't feel like I've had a summer.  And why, oh why, did I think I could get ready to do the show September 7 with Holly Hills Primitives?  It sounds like fun, lots of fun, but the show is in less than two weeks.  ARGH!!!  

I hooked these little fall mats.  They are bound but in need labels.

The next two pictures were taken without a flash. Of course with a flash, they were too bright, but without just look blah.  I've gotten eight of these hooked ~ all different ~ all done with hand torn strips ~ Heavens to Betsy style.  

Now the not-so-fun part ~ stitching the patchwork backs.  This is pumpkin #1.  You can see I have my work cut out for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I MUST get busy.

More Rugs ~

Lots more rugs from Sauder Village to share with you, so if you get bored looking at what others have hooked, you may want to skip a post or two :)

A shout out to Susan Cook who entered my "faux pas" give-away via email.  Send me an email by Sunday to claim your little win.  I never did hear from the previous winner :(

So many styles of hooking.  Some my style, some not, but I admire them all nonetheless.  And on with the show . . .

One of my favorite rugs. 

I love seeing many different interpretations of the same pattern.

I love that the deer was changed to a horse.

This was very cool.  From afar, it was hard to tell that it is a hooked rug at the bottom.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I'll be back to bore you again soon.
Pug hugs :)
