Hooked Rugs, Wool Applique and New Followers

I'm winding down on that HUGE pile of hooked rugs that just needed bound I only have a few more to go....although I do have several rugs started....so the cycle continues!

Sloan's rug is a pattern by Maria Barton of Star Rug Company. It turned out just great for a lil' boy don't you think!

Well last Friday I had a pile of scrap wools and some squares of creamy flannel and look what I found in all those scraps. I didn't use a pattern just started cutting guess what a lil' neighborhood was hidden in those scraps!

Now for my new followers....Sloan's chicks love to follow me all over the yard. I hang out the clothes there they are, water the tomatoes and there they are. They come running soon as they see me come outside...who knew chickens could be so much fun. I'm going to give my Mom one of the roosters she just needs to come pick one out.

This volunteer sunflower popped up in the fence row and it's a beauty.

Wishing you a sunny week filled with cool breezes and time shared with friends and family!

Happpy Trails....Ginger

Your rugs are just beautiful. I always look forward to see what you have done. I love your chickens too.
I agree, I never, ever knew that chickens were such fun.
Your flowers are pretty too.

Love the pictures Ginger! Your rugs are all wonderful. I especially love the animal one and Sloan's rug. It really is perfect for a little boy. The little village is sweet. Very neat idea. The sunflower is beautiful.

Lovely rugs & works! Sloan's rug is just as sweet as can be! :) I've always wanted to have chickens, but don't have a clue about how to take care of them.

Those rugs are all beautiful and so are those sunflowers.
I wish I could say that my little rug was further along or maybe even done but I can't. I had trouble with a few pieces of wool not wanting to twist the way that I wanted it to and I got frustrated. I put it down for a while but I will return to it and when I do I'll share what I have done.

Oh, I forgot to tell you that I was at our Jo-Ann's store the other night and found monks cloth there for sale. I was so excited!

Just found your blog and and I'm glad I did. Can't wait to find some time to look at some of your old posts. Your hooked rugs are fabulous. Something I have always wanted to do but never took the time to start. Nice pillows too. No sewing for me.
Have a blessed day,
