I've finished my heart rug (pattern gifted to me by Saundra). I started it on February 7 and pulled my last loop today. The finished size is about 20 1/2" x 21". I hooked it with mostly with a 9.5 and some 8.5, so it went quickly, but I do believe this is the fastest I've ever hooked a rug. The picture was taken without a flash. The colors are more accurate than a picture taken with a flash but of course it's not a crisp.
Yesterday I headed to the Ault's rug hooking store to meet up with friend Sheila and spend a few hours hooking. She was making great progress on a hit 'n miss she just started.
A wonderful poinsettia rug Sheila is working on. She had trouble deciding on the background and did a lot of reverse hooking, but I absolutely love the background she finally chose. It is many different black wools. I believe it is a pattern by Joanne Gerwig.
Julie, smiling as always, is working on an amazing rug. She hooks HUGE rugs and this one must have weighed ten pounds.
I think it's call Tulip Cross. The sun streaming in the window really washed out the colors.
When Julie told Sheila and me there was a basket of wool that was $5 to fill a bag, we quickly filled our bags. Can you believe all this was in my bag? There's at least several yards. I think it was the wool buy of the century.
My DSO and I have been "dating" for 18+ years. He always puts much thought in to the cards he gives me. They are usually romantic bordering on mushy. This is the card I got this year. I love that man's sense of humor :)
We got a few more inches of snow this morning . . . sigh.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
