Final Finish~

Just a quick post to wish you all a happy and safe New Year's Eve.  I will spend the evening doing what I love most.  Hooking, watching a movie, sipping a little wine and being with my DSO and the two fur kids.
This was a quick hook.  It measures about 13" x 13" and was hooked mostly in an 8 1/2 cut.  Next month I will learn how to add a braided edge when the Hidden Hills Hookers meet.

I opted not to hook the pine bough and considered hooking holly, but didn't.  Me thinks he looks a little blah.  Maybe I will make a smaller version of this woollie pine bough or use a few sprigs of artificial greens.  I think I'll wait until after the braided edge is added to decide.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

  3. Oh but I love those swirls in the dark sky!!!!!! And the addition of the greenery in his cap is perfect. Happy New Year and hope sometime in 2016 life gets a little more peaceful with more time to hook and Cape May rug camp.

  5. Love him, we will be doing the same feet up that is if husband doesn't talk me into going to the fireworks later.

  6. That was a fast hooking job Lauren. Your snowman is just adorable .
    I'll be doing much the same as you and everybody else. Instead of hooking I separated some wool worm so I can finish hooking my neglected rug...

    My company went home to Ottawa today and the house is dead quiet.

  8. Hope you're having a wonderful evening! I think the braided border will look great!!

  9. He is so cute, love the way he came out. I finished mine today, so need to steam it a bit to see if I can fluff up the roving yarn, then decide if I need to fix anything and a border, might try a braid on this one.
    Happy New Year and blessings to you and the family.
