This rug has been needing finished for a long time. I finally set down and finished up the background and added the border. Pulled the last loop and now to get it bound. If you are interested this is a pattern by Pine Island Primitives. Think I will place it in front of the fireplace where the grandkiddo's like to set and look at books :)
Started this scrappy little rug on Saturday and finished pulling the last loop on Saturday evening.
With the same pile of wooly worms and a bit of scrap monks cloth made a small little scrappy mat. With hooking all these pieces I have lots of wooly snippets for stuffing :)
Now to get everything bound!
A week or so ago I spent the day dyeing about 200 skeins of wool yarn. With the Oklahoma winds and the sunshine it doesn't take long to dry. Pati and I are building a website that will offer wool yarns, patterns, and finished goods later this fall.
Our 6 weeks of demonstrating at Silver Dollar City is coming up soon and we have a few things left to finish up!
We had our little rug hooking group here on Saturday and Sandra and Pati were both able to come.
There was 10 of us in all. We enjoyed our time spent together and it will be October before we will all be able to meet again.
Mom even got to come over and stitch. Dad is doing pretty good with the chemo and radiation. He continues to cut and bale hay but does rest when he needs too. We are so thankful that he is getting through this. The daily driving to radiation does get tiring for Mom and Dad but hopefully in a few weeks that will be done.
We have one more family gathering planned before school starts! We have a few July birthdays to celebrate and we do enjoy getting together :)
