What to Do On a Hot Summer Day!

With the temperatures soaring into triple digits it's nice to sit inside and do a little rug hooking. Of course the washing machine always seems to be getting a workout. Yesterday while at work I managed to work in some rug hooking, too.

This guy was a fun project to hook and he is a wonderful design by Among Friends. I just need to add some buttons to his overalls and do the binding and he will be ready for autumn days.

What to do with all those extra woolley scraps....a simple little mat with stars and sheep. Scrappy rugs are always one of my favorites reminds me of just making do with what you have.

Well I'm off to work on a few more projects.

Happy Trails....Ginger
