Finally ~

I finally have a little rug on the frame.  It feels good to have hook in hand.  This is a Heavens to Betsy pattern measuring only 10 1/2" x 15".
Thanks to all who entered my penny mat give-away.  I always pick my winner the old-fashioned way.  I write all the names on a slip of paper and throw them in a bowl.  Congrats to Sweet Sue.  Please send me you snail mail address.
I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend.  I, for one, refuse to believe it is September.  I think I will be like the ostrich and bury my head in the sand.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. That looks like it is going to be a fun piece, can't wait to see more.


  2. Cute rug Lauren. Look, September is right before October which is the best month. It's fall - boots and sweaters. Wheeeee

  3. I love your little rug. I know I really do feel your pain. I feel that way when the time changes like the world gets too dark.
    I hope you have a lovely first week of September. :)

  4. Can't wait to see your cute little mat. I want to make something small next, and you are inspiring me!

  5. Oh gosh, what a shock, thx for the fun Lauren, your gorgeous prim mat will most definitely have a place of honor in our home! Will contact you shortly...

  6. Congrats to Sweet Sue! Very cute rug Lauren; glad you could get your hook on. ;)

  7. Congrats to Sweet Sue! Looking forward to seeing your progress on this mat, Lauren!

  8. The season must be changing... I too have picked up my hook lately and it does feel good. Looking forward to fall, not winter so much.

  9. I love your rug! I wish I were a hooker. Maybe I will learn someday. Congrats to the winner!

  10. I'm sure it does feel good to have hook in hand. Congratulations Sue, we are all envious as you got a great piece hand-did by a great gal.


  11. You got a lot done on your rug Lauren. Believe me, September is here and you better dig your head out of the sand because it will be October before you know it. lol. I hope that your get comfort hooking your pretty rug.

    Have a great week.

  12. Your rug looks sweet. I have been trying to make the prodded flower pins my guild is having a hook in in October and they want everyone to get one.
    It is very warm here so does not feel much like fall.
    but alas the nights are getting longer. To me the worst part of winter.

  13. I thought of you the other day when at our local mall at the H&M clothing store I saw leggings with pug faces all over it. Funny!
