Whiskers My Big UFO~ No Problem!



Whiskers is a pattern I bought last September while on a trip to Texas with my Dad to visit his brother. I was lucky enough to go to Stonehill Spinning in Fredericksburg, Texas. If your ever near Fredericksburg and like rug hooking it's a great shop to visit.

Well ol' Whiskers has been sitting in the UFO pile too long so what a great place to start on the 10 Minute Rug Hooking Challenge. It sure will be nice to have it done. It measures about 20 x 62 inches. I may have to have a challenge to bind all the rugs I already have hooked!

I sure want to have this one finished up for fall and we all know it's just around the corner!



This end is completely hooked.




I knew that once I got started I would have trouble putting down the hook. With progress like this I should have it done by next week.



We took Sloan to a calf sale yesterday and he sure enjoyed seeing all the calves and also the cowboys! He may just grow up to be a cowboy!

Happy Trails....Ginger
