Oh my goodness, is what I say about this new pattern!!  I have not been doing to much hooking lately, alot of punch needle is what I have been doing.  I lost, I guess, my mojo for hooking, BUT then Maria from STAR RUG COMPANY had this new pattern, and I had to get it .  Well it showed up in the mail yesterday and I was absolutely excited about it, HAD to start it right away.  Isn't Santa and his lamb just darling.  I am going to try and finish it today, we will see.

I have been Stitchin!!

 I finished stitching this piece this morning, I love it.  Stacy Nash designed this for the Malabar show this year.
I even got it completed.  I haven't completed a stitching pattern in years.  Stitching use to be my favorite craft to do.  I did enjoy working on it, thank goodness I have glasses now, sure can't see the holes without them, geez that is a sign of aging, never had to worry about it years ago, such as life.  I may even stitch up something else, so many great patterns out there, I want alot of them, so we will see!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Last Saturday, I attended a Hook-in at Kingwood Center, and so fabulous it was.  I go t to see alot of hookers I haven't seen in awhile, and I got to meet Betsy from Heavens to Betsy.  Betsy is just the sweetest you'll ever meet.  She brought along lots and lots of wonderful wool.  Yes I did buy lots, as well as the pattern above.  I was so excited to get this pattern.  I worked on it this week and this far it is all hooked, just need to bind it and steam it.  I do love how it turned out.  It is an adaption of an antique rug.  This is a nice size it measures about 27 x 35.
Well the weather here in Ohio is crazy!!  It is either so hot you cant breathe, or turns so cold you have to wear sweats, sick of it!!  I want some nice summer weather, with no rain please!!

Here is my newest rug I have started, I really love it so far.  This rug is the biggest pattern I have worked on.  I keep telling myself, not to do big patterns but I so love this one.  This is a pattern by WOOLEN MEMORIES and it measures 22 x 43.  This one will take me awhile to do, other commitments have to be done first.  Finally the rain has stopped here and we actually seeing the wonderful SUN again!!  Always makes for a better day.

I Love this rug!!!  This pattern is sold thru Spruce Ridge Studios and is a design by Lori Brechlin.  This one took me about 7 days to hook, was glad to finish it up.  I really don't like working on one project that long, always anxious to move onto next project.
I finally did get this one whipped and steamed, I also love how it turned out!  This is a pattern by Country Stitches.

I love this rug alot!!  Feeding the chickens!!  This is also a pattern sold thru Spruce Ridge Studios and another of Lori's designs. 

Well last week we had some really nice storms move thru here, and we were one of the fortunate ones to get hit good by lighting, took out several items in the house.  Fried our NEW computer and modem so I havent had the internet since last Wednesday night, boy was that a bummer, also fried our home phone, phone lines still worked but had to get new phones.  Right now I can actually say thank goodness for home owners ins.  One thing I will admit, I sure do get alot done when I don't have the internet.  We still dont have everything back in working order that was taken out but slowly working on it. 

I am working on a new rug, I love it so far, I will post picture of it little later when I have more to show.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Rhonda

Finally got this rug hooked, took me 4 days, way longer than I want to spend on one rug, but it is a nice size.  I love how it turned out, I just love the eagle in this design!  This is a pattern by Country Stitches.  I still of course need to whip the edges and steam it up really good.  This one will hopefully be headed to ebay tomarrow.  But if anyone is interested in by all means email me before I put it on ebay.  This will be the only one like this that I will make.   Well we finally was able to get our yard mowed, seriously thought we might of had to get some goats if we couldn't get to it soon.  No goats need now, but they would be fun!
   Good thing I enjoy spending my days at home hookin, gas has reached $4.19 here, seriously this is just out of control, I do see people losing jobs again in this strong economy we have going(HA HA).
  My heart just feels heavy for the families in the south that got hit by the tornado's!!  I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers!!
    Til next time!!  Thanks for stopping in!!  Rhonda
