Happy 4th ~


I hope your 4th is even better than imagined :)  We had cookouts Saturday & Sunday with fireworks on Sunday.  It has been a perfect holiday weekend.  Today is pretty low key ~ just what I needed.  Did a little hookin', a little yard work, spent a little time with my sweetie.  Heaven.

Last night we had another breathtaking sunset.  Simply amazing colors.

Totally coincidence, but here's what I'm hooking this Independence Day.  Never even thought about it when I was drawing up the pattern the other day.  I've punched this once and this is my third time hooking it.  Just a fun little pattern.  Not using worms this time, though I should be.  Hooked mostly in an 8 1/2 cut (my current favorite size . . . subject to change, of course) it's about 13" in diameter.

I am in love with this blue wool.  Purchased from Rebecca Erb, it's her coverlet blue.  I've had it since it came out, but it's the first time I've hooked with it and it won't be the last.  I only bought a half yard so I think I'd better search out some more.  I also purchased the red and green and haven't hooked with those yet, but I'm sure they will be just as wonderful.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Love the wool, great texture for the background. We had a sky that looked like it was on fire, wish I had gotten to the beach to watch it, but too many people with the fire works.

Was a nice holiday weekend. But now time to get back on schedule. Love the colors in the eagle rug.

The sky looks beautiful with the color of the sunset. Lovely color combination of the eagle in the wool.

Wow, I adore that eagle chair pad, the colors and I've not used that blue yet either. Oh, also have the red and green which I haven't used.
