Poinsettia ~

It's not often I have an evening where I totally lack energy or ambition, but tonight is one of them.  I have gotten nothing done (other than taking an hour nap that turned in to two ~ a rarity for me) except for finishing the edge on this little mat.  It is a design from a Lori Brechlin booklet purchased years ago.  I hooked it on the burlap I blogged about here.  I am glad to have it done.  I never hooked on burlap before, and I found this hard to hook on.  I cannot get the metallic threads to show in the picture, but trust me, they are there :)
I can't believe Thanksgiving was a week ago.  Where, oh where, is the time going?
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Sweet little design....nice start on Christmas projects. Love those naps :-))

  2. Beautiful on burlap.
    Love the colors too.
    Where oh where has the time gone?
    Merry Christmas

  3. It's lovely! Hope you are feeling more perky soon. Ack -- Thanksgiving was a week ago? how did that happen?

  4. Morning Lauren, I love the Pointsetta, looks so beautiful.Blessings Francine.

  5. Lauren, it is a great piece you just hooked and whoever the recipient is should love it.


  6. Your little mat is so cute. I saw that burlap at JoAnn's..

    Try taking some vitamin B to boost your energy level back up.

  7. Poinsettia are so pretty and to have captured it on a rug, how wonderful. It allows you to enjoy it all year long. I wish I could nap, but I just can't shut my head down, planning too many projects!!!!. In the wintertime, I up my vitamin D intake, especially as I am indoor all the time.

  8. I love how that came out, beautiful piece.
    I get days like that and it is rare for me too, but sometimes we just get tired and today I am sick, so not much I can do but ride it out.


  9. I think it is just lovely.
    I hope you get to rest this weekend. I know I am so glad it is Friday.

  10. Love the way you left the background unhooked - gives a great effect with the sparkly burlap!

  11. You always accomplish so much Lauren, I am surprised to hear that you had a day without your boundless energy! Love the poinsettia rug, glad it isn't a real poinsettia to make Ellie sick!

  12. What a great little Christmas project! I started a hooked turkey before Thanksgiving and it's still not finished.....I should put that on my to-do list for the week. I've just been in a hooking slump
