Seis de Mayo ~

As usual, a day late and a dollar short :)  

Tonight I met a friend for dinner at a local Mexican restaurant.  I hadn't seen her in forever so it was nice to catch up.  (In less than a week I've been out for Italian, Chinese, Mexican plus 5 Guys and I wonder why the scale hates me . . . lol!)

I finished the hooking on Here a Chick, a Barbara Carroll pattern found in this book.  

The finished size is about 26 1/2" x 24".  

I need to do a little reverse hooking on these two faces.

The chicks were hooked with an 8 cut (ick), some 8.5 was used, but the majority of the rug was hooked with a 9.5.  

Now it's time to plan and get busy on the gift rugs.  Why do I not do a better job planning ahead?

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

I have been on a diet for 2 weeks I tried to put on a pair of capris and there was no way I was zipping them. So it was time.

I love your little Mexican guy. And I love not cooking so I say Yeah for your restaurant outings. We all need a treat sometimes. Rug looks great. 9.5? Wow

Orange Sink said...

It sounds like I need to take a road trip to experience some of those restaurants as well as help you fold your wool! LOL! I think your rug looks great... those wide cuts are hard to get the details in faces.. but they look fine to me! That pug in the sombrero would make a cute rug too!

I baked cookies for my husband tonight and ate SIX! I am in real trouble and need to lose the 20 I gained. Your "model" looks adorable.

Love your puppy, too cute! So glad you got out with your friend, us girls need that. Love your rug hooking, that is on my bucket list to learn. hugs, Lecia

Saundra said...

Wow, 9.5 eh? No wonder you accomplished so much in so little time. I'm going to hook with #9 at Barbs and maybe higher, will see. Your mat looks great.

The scales won't like me either when I return home from camp in less than 2 weeks. Ah, but the price we must pay to have fun and eat well.


Julia said...

A great way to celebrate spring... Throw that scale away and enjoy life while you can. It's been a long winter...
Great job on the rug and the Mexican amigo looks pretty serious guarding that bottle. lol

Your rug turned out awesome! Love the curves in the background. I love using the 9.5 cuts too. The 8 looks so small after that, doesn't it? Have a good day.
hugs, Lori

How long did it take to convince that cute pug to model that sombrero? I assume he didn't need anything in that bottle! Love how your rug turned out. Love the wide cuts but usually stick with my go-to #8. Get much more details.
Glad spring has made it to my native Ohio. Thank goodness, the rain has finally stopped here. April 2014 was the 5th wettest April since they started keeping count. Getting 15" in two days washed away all my new grass seed.

Lauren, your rug is wonderful! Love the "yellow" dog and the red kitty. I hope that pug had a designated driver!
Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
