I had to cry "UNCLE". My goal was to hook my Chicken Challenge rug using only worms I had in my stash. When I started on the background, I soon realized I had nowhere near enough antique blacks/darks. Rather than go to my larger pieces of wool, I went to my wire laundry basket, dug around and pulled all the small scraps of dark I could find.
The largest piece I cut was about 4" wide.
The background. I am probably about half done with the rug. It really is a fun hook.
This morning it was a balmy 0*. Now that's cold, but not nearly as cold as the -34 Lori from Homespun Prims said was their morning temperature. I can't even imagine and I don't want to find out how cold that really is - EVER.
There are signs of spring in northern Ohio. My daffodils are popping out of the ground . . .
. . . and my snowdrops have buds.
Do you think Ellie is just a bit spoiled? This was taken this morning. What a life :)
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm so happy it's the weekend. I always say a bad weekend at home is better than a good week at work.
Pug hugs :)
