What a glorious rainy day, but how can it possibly be June? It's hard to believe just a couple weeks ago we had serious flooding issues. My gardens have already become dry and the ground cracked. We have had several hours of a gentle, steady rain. I do think I hear my flowers singing and doing the happy dance.
To all my Canadian friends . . . I went to the post office to double check the price to ship to Canada and it wasn't as bad as I thought, so you are most welcome to enter my give-away. Just leave a comment on my last post or drop me an email.
I finished the Hearts and Clover mat. It's an antique adaptation and the finished size is about 19" x 22". I've even gotten the binding done ~ whipped it with wool yarn from Ali Strebel. She has the most wonderful, chunky yarn.
Here are some of the wools I've used.
Both these wools are from Rebecca Erb. I believe the wool on the left is called Favorite Khaki Background and it is one of my favorite wools. On the right is a wonderful dusty pinkish color from a recent flier. It hooks up so old looking ~ and I am NOT a pink person.
I think the wool on the left is from Heavens to Betsy. I used it to hook the clover, but I guess you could say I fussy cut it because I did not use the solid blue stripe. I don't know whose wool that is on the right that I used for the hearts, but I LOVE it. I recently purchased some from The Old Tattered Flag, but just went to their website and couldn't seem to find it.
I'm hooking a bit on What Nots before I start my next gift rug.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
