What's Up ~

 
Tomorrow I am off to Sauder Village for the day.  I am taking a color planning workshop with Carol Decoteau from the Old Tattered Flag.  I've been agonizing about what rug to take with me.  It hit me the other night about 1:00 am as I tossed and turned.

I've been wanting to hook Anne Nichols' 1847 Turkey for many years (lower right corner).  I found the booklet a couple years ago but never put the pattern on linen.  

 
The pattern is now on linen and ready for me to take.  I've pulled a few wools that I think may work. 
 
 
I'm also in the process of hooking a mini version of the antique rug, Hearts and Clover.  Here are two that I hooked a few years ago.

 
 
Here's the mini version currently on my frame.  I may add a couple hearts on the bottom corners.  I plan to attach this to a vintage picnic basket as a Christmas gift.  For once I am trying not to wait until the last minute to hook a few gifts.

 
Hopefully I will have lots to share from Sauder.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Love the turkey! Looking forward to seeing the finished project! Have fun at Sauder! We’re not going this year. I had been tossing around giving up,the rug hooking but lately I’ve seen things on your blog as well as others that is tickling my interest. I’m close to being done make big quilts and will soon just make seasonal wall hangings so I’m think I might actually get some of the ufos finished!

Hope you had fun at Sauder. That turkey pattern has always been a favorite of mine, too. And, yes, I have the booklet...lol. I am impressed at how diligently you are working on Christmas gifts. Wish a bit would rub off here.

I love that turkey rug. I can't wait to see all of your pictures. Pulling colors is always the hardest part for me.
I need a class like that.
I love seeing your hooking. You always inspire me Lauren.
