More Finishes and Playing In Puddles

I have been working on a few more finishes and I must say I feel guilty hooking when I know there is still more to be bound. At least there is an end in sight. I only have 11 more to be bound.

I did try a little hooking directly onto wool...just a simple flower and it still needs steamed.

Well the guilt only last so long and I did start a posey runner that is designed by Saltbox Primitives. I saw this when we were in Warsaw, MO a couple of weeks ago and I knew I had to have it!

Saturday evening we had Sloan for the night and decided to hop in the truck and go visit with his Great~Grandma and one of his cousins just happened to be there visiting, too. So after a little snack of homemade muffins made by Grandma they had a great time....

Playing in puddles of course! You know every now and then the scooter needs a good scrubbing.

Chloe decided she would just go ahead and get right in. She's not going to be outdone by any boy!

Oh to be a kid again!

Happy Trails....Ginger

I wonder what it is about mud puddles that makes them so irresistible? Great rugs. Keep going, you are making progress on the finishes.

Puddles!!! Yippeeeee! Looks like a lot of fun! Love all your hooking, too! Keep on hooking... There will always be something that needs binding... it's just a simple truth! ;-)

How did you like hooking on wool?
Really liking the chair pad designs.
I have a posey runner above my entry door. I like the white pot with the blue stripes.
I the kids and they freedom they have to just get out there and have fun. I wish at my age I still had that joy.
Hoping for sun shine soon

I'll bet you did end up joining them in that puddle! :)

Your rugs are great as usual & I'm still flabbergasted to see how many you get hooked!

That's what the puddles are for right?

Your rug designs look great.
Since school is done now I plan to get my strips cut today and FINALLY begin an actual project. What better way to spend a rainy day!

Lots of wonderful hooking, you do keep busy.
Nothing like a good mud puddle to make a kids day;)

Hi Ginger,
Love your welcome design! And it would be wonderful to be a kid again ... I'd just like to be able to walk barefoot again!
Stay warm and dry.

I always loved stomping thru the mud puddles as a kid. What fun Chloe and Sloan are having. Your hooked pieces are wonderful. Wish I could get as much done as you do.

Your designs are beautiful! You do such wonderful work on your hooking! The runner will be fabulous when you are finished with it. I just love runners!

Those are some sweet pictures of the kids. One of the most fun things to play in-- mud puddles!
