Happy Valentine's Day ~

This year Western Reserve Rug Hooking Guild members were asked to hook, applique, etc, this little design to be used as door prizes at our hook in.  The design measures 4 3/4" square.

I think this small design would be difficult to hook even in an 8 cut so I chose to do mine in wool applique and I opted to make mine round.  I've gotten two completed . . .

. . . and am working on one more.
I've also been pulling a few loops.  All that's left is background and I do enjoy the mindlessness of it.

The "girls" have a Valentine message for you.

Cindy Lou Who

I hope your day is perfect!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Happy V-Day to you Lauren ! Hope DSO is doing something nice for you. That Cindy lou is a mess getting up on your bar and eating dog food. she's a cutie. I'm just catching up on your blog. THat is so interesting those Snowdrops will come up in the snow, I guess that's why they're snow drops! So much I don't know about other parts of the country. WOW I love your bunny girl - such an awesome gift. Pearl and Earl are looking great too. Those applique pieces almost look like old butter mold patterns. great colors too. Take care, keep warm - Mel

Those little appliques are cute and look pretty easy to do and I love those colors you chose. I can see you're having fun with them.
Your rug is looking lovely. Happy Valentine to you and the girls.
The weather was just spectacular here today.
Hugs, Julia

I think doing your project in wool is better than hooking it. They look sweet! The girls message is a good too! Happy Valentine's Day! Janice

I haven't done any stitching in so long I just transferred some of my stair risers and I need some dyed wool so I have to get in the dye pot.
Happy Valentine's day

I have been sewing with my daughter for the last 5 weeks, not a single loop has been pulled or a single quilt block made. But we got the costumes completed last night. So today I will think in terms of wool.

Love your applique. It is so nice to see a black and white picture turned into reality.

Hope your Valentine day was sweet.

Love your hooked piece! Love the little applique pieces you're making too -- they are wonderful! So funny about little Miss and her antics in the basement. lol! But that face! And Ernestine's too! Can't stay mad at those faces for sure!

Funny you posted that quote....when I got home from work on Thursday, I picked up my cat, gave him a hug and started singing "My Fuzzy Valentine" to! My dh started laughing his butt off...he's happy that we're all happy! :-)

Those little applique door prizes look awesome!
