Happy Sunday, dear friends. It is a beautiful day on Ohio's north coast. I've gotten a few much needed yard tasks done, most importantly cleaning out my little pond. Usually it is done in May, but the weather did not cooperate . . . plus it's just a nasty job cleaning out all the rotting leaves so I did procrastinate a bit.
Tulips, a pattern by Cathy Stephan of Red Barn Rugs, is FINALLY done. Started last October in a class with Cathy, it was put aside and nary a loop was pulled until a few weeks ago. It is now bound. It just needs a final steaming and a rug label made :) This is the best of my lousy pictures of the rug :(
I must have at least 30 patterns on linen and many more than that ready to transfer. Plus two rugs that are kitted. I normally don't buy kits, but one was bought second hand and I purchased another from Tricia Travis at rug camp in April. Nothing is screaming . . . or even saying . . . hook me. I need to decide on a project tout de suite. I have not yet dyed the wool necessary to finish Antique Floral that was started at rug camp so can't do much with that. Decisions, decisions.
I've showed this clematis in years past. Dug from my parents farm, it survived being run over by the lawnmower and eaten by the cow. It must be at least 40 years old and is just such a prolific bloomer.
Thanks for all the fun comments on my last post. I guess there are many wool obsessed hookers out there. I am amongst good company.
Last chance to enter my give away. Check it out here.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
