~*NOEL*~ A Start for Next Christmas

Oh what a beautiful day we had here today on the plains of Oklahoma. The wind finally calmed down and much of the daylight hours was spent outside chasing an active lil' boy. It seems as though the weather forecast for the weekend is suppose to bring in cold temperatures once again. Oh well that's Oklahoma for you one day it's in the high 70's and the next it can be freezing.

I have been working on 2 different rugs that Gene Shepherd has been offering some different techniques on and I decided I best concentrate on one and finish it up so I thought I would show you my first finish. NOEL just happens to be my daughter's middle name, she was born just 8 days before Christmas. So this rug will displayed above the mantel this year. I am pleased with how it all came together and I did learn quite a lot.

Happy Trails....Ginger
