Rug Progress and January Hooking Day
I made a little bit of progress on the challenge rug. The border is done and I'm hoping by the end of next week all the hooking will be done. Reallly liking the look of this rug. Making use of a lot of scrap darks I have for the background and mixing it up.
For this year I have decided to have a once a month hooking day. We had one on Friday and there were 6 of us. We had a good time chatting and working on projects.
You have to watch out for Sandra and Pati you just never know what these gals might be up too!
Sandra has been hand dyeing some wool and come up with some really beautiful pieces. Of course Pati and I couldn't resist buying a few!
It was a really windy day so we set a little closer to the fire. By the afternoon it warmed up despite the wind.
I finished binding a rug then got busy with my oxford punch....working on a few simple projects.
Veronica is also doing an oxford punch piece. Doesn't the colors just pop!
Kay was busy finishing the border on this long runner. Just love the pattern and I think I may have to do one, too!
Laura started the Uncle Sam...a pattern by Pine Island Primitives.
Sandra was working on her Give Ye Thanks... a design by Lori Brechlin. Love the log cabin.
I didn't get a picture of Pati's. She was binding her rug that she made from the LJ Fibers year rug from 2010.
Well, it's been a busy weekend so far. Went and seen my youngest niece play basketball today and then to my nephew's 15th birthday party. In between we are finishing up a few projects around the farm.
Hoping each of you are enjoying your weekend as well.
