Making Pins and Finishing Rugs
It's just been too HOT outside to do much of anything. Sloan and I walked through the garden this evening and a few pumpkins and gourds have survived the terrible heat. He took a few home this evening for his Momma. Today while he took a good nap I made up a batch of pretty pins. They will go in some pinkeeps I hope to make.
My fingers have been working overtime on binding lots of hooked mats and rugs. I had created quite a pile and yes there are still some more to go. You would think I would learn not to let them pile up so high.
Some will be sold and some will go here and there in the house.
The antique looking Santa and Reindeer designed by Star Rug Company is one of my favorites it will be staying :)
The Loose Caboose Festival will be September 3rd in Purcell and some of the rugs and mats will be in our little booth. We will be setting up on Main Street...I sure hope the temperatures cool down a bit.
My Mom has been raising some baby chicks and she plans to give Sloan a few. Sure hope the racoons don't get them. We have one brave racoon that comes to visit every evening and is not scared of us at all.
With record setting triple digits I'm really longing for a crisp fall day!
We have been busy completing a few needed chores around the house guess there will always be something to work on.
Well that's what I completed on the pile of UFO rugs and mats. I'm really getting the hang of this binding stuff although I still have several to go with some really large ones. I'm trying my best not to hook anymore until I catch up...well see if I can keep the yarn and needle busy :)
Enjoy the rest of your week!!!
