FINALLY!!! I have some hooking finishes to share.
This little mat is a pattern by Connie Bradley/Wool Yankers. Started with her in a class in March, it is done - except for the label, of course. The colors are so much richer in person (as usual). I will try to get a better picture another time.
I finished hooking this rug (My Garden, pattern by Woolen Memories) months ago, started binding it more than a month ago, and just finished this evening. It's about darn time. It's a biggie for me at 22 1/2" x 42 1/2". These colors are pretty true.
The weather in Ohio was absolutely miserable today. Mid 40's, windy and rain most of the day. A horrible weekend for a motorcycle trip, but that is exactly how my son is spending it. His club had planned a trip to Hocking Hills in southern Ohio. I guess not one of the guys had the courage to say "Hey, this weather is ridiculous. Let's just drive down." Thankfully there was one vehicle driving down so my grandson was warm and dry. So . . . since my son is gone, I get to watch the granddog. He calls her his "teacup Newfie". His ex-girlfriend bought my son and grandson the dog for their birthdays one year. When she told me how/where she bought the dog, it screamed PUPPY MILL, but of course I could/would not say anything. She went on about how huge the parents were. Well . . . Kali (goddess of destruction) is extremely small and most likely not all Newfie. She looks a lot like a border collie . . . but she is loved and that is all that matters at this point.
Only nine days until I leave for five days of hooking heaven at Cedar Lakes rug camp in West Virginia. I am so excited. My teacher is Cathy Stephan of Red Barn Rugs. Still trying to decide what pattern of hers to hook. I've narrowed it down to three.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
