On the Frame ~


Finally getting around to showing what is on my frame.  Remember the rug I was trying to track down from a Create & Decorate magazine?  
 
 
One of my blog readers, Kathleen, (thanks again Kathleen!) let me know it was from the May/June 2014 issue.  Thankfully friend Melissa found her copy.  Here is the page from the magazine.
 
 
I wanted to hook mine with the similar soft colors I used in this rug.
 

Progress so far.  I am not putting in the scalloped clamshell corners and may change the shape of the pot a bit.  Still not sure on that.   

 
 A few more irises have started to bloom.  They are simply gorgeous.
 
 

 
Taking off tomorrow evening for California.  Wish me safe travels please :)  Not sure if I will get a blog post done while gone.  As I've often mentioned, my iPad and I don't play well together and the only time I try to blog from it is when I am away from home.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

have fun on your trip to Cal. I'll be optimistic and look forward to a blog post. The iris photos in this and last post are GORGEOUS! I've never seen such beautiful ones - not around here anyway. I stopped the car last week in the mountains to look at some in a yard across from our rental condo. The pug reunion was cool - never seen a gray one either, maybe some frenchie in there? love your new rug ! btw - used my pickle fork at a weekend luncheon and got some great comments - I said YEP - from my talented friend Lauren at Rugs and Pugs! hugs Mel
