Hookin's Done ~


Pulled the last of the loops on the Chicken Challenge rug this evening.  Initially, I wasn't that thrilled with the pattern but thought the challenge sounded like fun since I had never done one before.  I must say, once I started hook it, I fell in love with its naivete.  I did hook the rug from my worm stash except for the antique black/dark background.  The finished size ended up being 15" x 30".  Of course, the black is more subtle in person.


Julia (of Petals and Wool) and Sunnie (Old Crow Farm) have started a new group on Rug Hooking Daily called the Great Stash Deworming Marathon.  It's hooking a project entirely from your worm stash.  Geez, I guess I started my Chicken Challenge rug a bit too soon . . . lol!  If you are interested in joining in on the fun, they will welcome you with open arms (and hook in hand).  I need to assess my worm stash to see what I can come up with.  HHHMMM . . . never did a challenge before and now two within a month.  What's gotten in to me?

Have you seen this video?  I first saw it on Tammy's blog and thought is was a hoot.  It's also making its way around Facebook.  If you need a good laugh, please take a peak.  It's less than a minute long and sure to be worth your while.




Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

  9. OMG, Ben thinks I'm crazy as a loon because I just howled at Cooper! That was funny thanks for sharing.

    Your Chicken Challenge rug came out really great! Sure wish I'd get back working on mine. But then I want to start something new for the deworming group. So guess there goes any more work on my geometric.
