Who Knew Rug Hooking Would Be So Fun!

Don't you just love this cat and bird! I hooked it up in no time! It's a doodle by Betty and when I saw it on her blog I knew I just had to give it a try. It would even look great as a stitchery or needle punch! Thank you Betty for some awesome doodles!

So Thursday has arrived and with that said most Thursday's and Friday's I am at work. Sloan is off visiting with his other grandparents and I'm sure they are enjoying every minute.

Well I looked up from my desk and what did I see outside...a HOUSE! Now I can honestly say it's the first house to pull in here. Mostly it's just farmers, oilfield workers or someone needing a truck bed or a trailer to pull equipment on. Seems like someone needed a little repair work done before pulling this house to it's new destination.

Our first home we lived in was smaller than this one but for just two youngsters starting out it was a place to call home. I often think back to that little tiny green house with just 4 rooms...made housework fast and easy!

Looks like today is going to be filled with some stormy weather and we can sure use the rain so no complaing here.

Happy Trails....Ginger

I love the looks of that rug!
Rug hooking seems to be so neat.
I am going to give a try at needle punching and once I have it perfected I think I would like to try rug hooking. But I will take one thing at a time...LOL

Love it... the first home I had in my first marriage was a little cottage with just four rooms and a bath, I can remember using white kitchen curtains with a red gingham check Boy, would I like to decorate it now but sadly it was torn down in later years.
Have a great evening Ginger.
