Are you like me and wondering how it can possibly be Thanksgiving next week? I'm still wondering what happened to summer. I guess I need to be thankful for the little things ~ actually this is a biggie ~ that I don't live in Buffalo. I cannot even begin to imagine that much snow ~ nor do I want to. Here it is only November and I'm already whining about winter. The cold snuck up on me. Here's my little fountain. Hopefully it will thaw this weekend and can get put away for the winter.
Here's my stag finish. (As always, much better color in person.) I do like the way it came out. Right now it's sitting in my ever growing pile of rugs needing bound. Hopefully I can find/make the time to get it done before the holidays. I think it will be perfect in front of the antique corner cupboard in the living room. (If you haven't seen the pattern before, you can find it here on Lori's sidebar.)
Now, I have to say I don't have an original bone in my body. This was
stolen graciously borrowed from hooker extraordinaire Carole. I wish I had taken pictures of her finishes, but sadly did not. This is a burlap fabric with gold metallic threads running through. Carole hooked Santas and I think a gingerbread man and did not hook any background. Just a little hooking "glitz" for the holiday. The fabric can be found at Michaels near where you find cross stitch supplies. The best part in case you don't like hooking on it? Less than $4 if you have a 50% off coupon. Hopefully I'll try hooking something in the next few days. I am about half done with a little mat but can't share because it is a Christmas gift.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
