Piddly Stuff ~

At the hooking retreat, I worked on piddly stuff but feel I got lots accomplished :)

I bound the little mat for the footstool and even got it labeled.

I also got the binding done on the Tree of Life.

I hooked a little pumpkin mat that will also go to the recipient of the footstool.  Hopefully I will also get some other seasonal ones hooked so she can switch them out.

I started Jack's Crow, a fun little pattern by Winter Cottage that can be found here.

ACK!  What's with the new blogger interface?  I hate change :(

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and staying healthy.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

All your little mats are lovely. I especially love, love the background wool for the tree of life. It's spectacular. You did a lot of work while you ere away. It's hot and muggy here and I don't feel like producing anything.

Take care and stay safe and well.
Hugs, Julia

You got a lot done, I am horrible at working in a group, we talk too much, lol.
I do love that stool and the rug, usually Bill makes me reproductions when I see something I like.

You did get a lot done! I like Jack's crow too but I am doing the damn stair risers I may get that for a quick project later.
I am not working full time but they are making me work Sat! I have no life right now so I guess it won't be a big deal. I will have sun mon and tue off. I have plenty of time off to take too so one more year is all I need to put up with it for.
took me two days to figure out how to moderate my comments uggg I am trying not to go back to the old one.

Change??? What change??? Apparently my rock is bigger here in Nod than yours is in O.HI.O..... Hmmmm....then again, I haven't actually DONE a post in a while. And heck yeah...given your relative "distaste" for binding, I'd say you got a lot done. All I see is perfect loops perfectly placed. Makes me not want to hook to night. (Can you see my pouty face???) That stool topper is soooo good! She's gonna absolutely love it. If not, she deserves to be kicked out of the family. And I love that Jack and crow!! Ok....gonna have to get that me thinks. Happy Wednesday or whatever the heck day it is. All I know for sure is it definitely is 2020 cuz the world is still upsdie down. ~Robin~

I haven't switched over yet. I hate change on blogger so much. I have to go find that little rug. That is a cutie. I love those rugs for that little footstool. My goodness that is so cute. I love your hooking so much. Your loops are always so perfect. I have a calendar on my fridge so I can figure out what day it is or I would be lost.
So nice to see what you have been doing.

That first pic depicts how I feel lately.... this is all starting to wear me down...
On the other hand.... looks like having a visit with hooker friends has certainly rekindled your hooking! Lovely pieces! :-)

Great rugs! Seems they are always messing with blogger. UGH Janice

marly said...

I'm sticking with the old blogger. Hate change.

Your rugs are really great. That little stool has my heart and how perfect that topper is for it. Love love love the tree also. Heck. Everything in the post is great including that whining woman.
