Totally Overestimated ~


I grossly overestimated how much hooking I would get done on the trip, but I did finish a few things.  I needed mindless hooking and these fit the bill.  This table runner is 12" x 36" and barely made a dent in my worms. 
 
 
Below is a pattern by Connie Bradley/Wool Yankers.  She will be launching a website soon and asked some of her regulars that hook with her to hook one of her patterns.  Honeycomb is 12" x 23 1/2".  I wanted something neutral and calming.  Not too sure if I like the results but I'm hoping Connie does :)  That worm on the left side of the rug is all I had left of the border wool and I wasn't sure if I was going to make it.  It was dyed wool I bought years ago so I probably would not have been able to find a suitable match. 
 
 
This was an impromptu mat that was hooked on the last leg of our trip.  Another no-brainer that used some of the worms I had cut for the above rug.  It measure about 9 1/2" x 13 1/2".  I just need to finish tacking down the binding.
 
 
I am now back to working on my Magdalena rug.  I thought I was not liking it, but after not having seen it for over 3 weeks, I think I do :)


Still need to get pics of my treasures that came home with me.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

I've enjoyed seeing pics from your trip and all! We used to make half-across the country trips a lot when I was little -- brings back memories!

thanks for sharing your trip with us, it stirred up memories from my time out west...you got a lot of hooking done on the road! I'd have been sleeping...it take a lot of hooking to make a dent in the worm pile...I've been at it all summer...

Now Lauren.....why is it your hit and miss pieces always look very planned? And why do mine look like a demented worm explosion? Lol. Good job on those pieces

Great job. I especially love the impromptu mat....so soothing, and I am drawn to linear hooking. Glad you're home safely!
