UFO Finish

Well almost!!!!

I started this rug back in the summer, put it aside. Decided to dye wool and guess what, yes I did I dyed the background wool that I planned on finishing this rug with. I dug through my piles and oh so lucky I found enough pieces of it to finish. I can't be doing that, I drive myself crazy. So my plan is finish what I start then I wont worry. Ha, I will see if I can stick to that. I have a few more started that I need to get finished. The rug shown is a design by primitive spirits, she has some really sweet designs. I still need to whip the edge and steam real good. Another thing that drives me crazy is all of the multiplying wooly worms, geez. I am going to try and do some rugs where I make myself only use what is cut. I was going through some today and yes craziness!! I know many rug hookers have this same craziness so I am not alone. Thanks for visiting!! Rhonda MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEARS TO YOU ALL

Monday Night Hook-in

Usually twice a month there is a small group of us that get together at Katie Allman's home for hook-ins. Her basement is set-up like an actual shop and she has lots of wonderful wool. Besides all the wool, I just love to go and be with my wonderful Hooking Friends. Below are some pouches that I made for gifts to share with some of the girls. I am always losing my hook, scissors or what ever it may be in the bottom of my bag, so decided to make pouches for the girls to keep their necessities in, and myself of course.

So I would like to say Merry Christmas to my fellow hookers, and that your friendship means so much to me!! Thank you Katie, Stacie, Becky, Julie, and Phylis for your friendship and our wonderful hooking nights.

Merry Christmas to all!!!! Thanks Rhonda

Ready for TDIPT update tonight

This is Tony the Snowman, he is a sweet pattern by Betty Dekat. He is just the happiest snowman ever.
I love this rug, I think it turned out very primitive looking.

I love the blue that I used in this mat. I think this also looks very prim. This is a great pattern by Lori Brechlin.

This rug is also very prim looking, the red used in this rug is a really great textured wool, I wish I was better with my camera to get the true coloring.
These 4 rugs will be offered later this evening on TDIPT. Wasn't sure if I was going to be ready but I managed, I got these 4 done in 2 days, so you can imagine what my house looks like. Well I am putting the hook down for a few days to clean and get ready for Christmas.
Stop by and check out the new updates on TDIPT later this evening or tomarrow morning, alot of great hand-mades by very talented artist. Thanks for stopping by!!! Rhonda
