Good evening, dear friends. It is a wonderful, rainy evening here in northern Ohio. We so need the rain. I think I can hear my lawn rejoicing :) On the other hand, this little miss won't be too happy when it's time to go out. She HATES to get wet. (Oops. Need to wipe her eyes.)
I started hooking this sweet little rug this evening. I swear I put in on linen a couple months ago, but it is nowhere to be found, so I drew up another one. I'm sure I'll find the other one soon. Murphy's Law, you know. It is a pattern by Polly Minick from her book American Summer. The pattern called for it to be enlarged 400%, but I did much less, though I don't remember what. It measures about 10 1/2" x 22 1/2". Polly's whale is white. Mine is almost white but there are bits of color in the wool. It is much lighter than I would normally hook, but it is a gift so I didn't want it too drab looking.
I still haven't decided on the butt spot on my cat mat. I'm leaning towards changing it. Kelly suggested changing it to grey, but I couldn't find a grey I thought would work. I just posted it on Facebook and the consensus seems to be for a change. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
