Scrappy Rugs and Keeping Warm

I have lots and lots of worms left over from projects and the scrap baskets always seem to be overflowing.  I made this wonky penny hooked rug and just love how it turned out.  Simple and no worries about keeping anything perfect.

It measures 20 x 26 inches.....guess what I still have a lot of woolly worms left!

Just about every Sunday after church we make a trip to Home Depot and most of the time I just work on a project in the truck.  This is my Home Depot project this week......crocheted fingerless gloves.  I just made it up as I went.  They are made of a nice wool yarn and with the colder temps on the way bet they help keep me nice and warm ☺

Well with the basket of woolley worms still overflowing I started yet another scrappy rug!

Just some random wonky hearts ♥

It's been a busy December lots of time spent with family and friends.  I do hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you a Very Happy New Year!  Thanks so much to all that stop by and visit my blog ♥

Wool Applique and Rug Hooking

Sometimes it is nice to simply use a kit and make some wonderful things.  I recently purchased some patterns from Cricket Street Wool while I was in Branson.  Carolyn Snyder owns the shop and does incredible work.  I purchased several patterns and several kits.  Her instructions are easy to follow and easy enough to make in a day.
In no time I had the little church pillow and the Wintertime with the deer pillow made.  I also, made two of the crazy clutches and they will be great for holding little tools for take along projects.
Then after finishing the wool appliques it was time to get busy with a little rug hooking.

I ordered this project in the beginning of 2014 from LJ Fibers at the Wooly Red Rug it is one of her annual hooked rug kits.  Primitive Medallions is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  I hooked all of this up in just one evening and I'm sure to be back at the frame often.  The primitive colors of wool look wonderful as each loop is pulled!
Thanks for stopping by to visit....hope you are having a great week and finding a little time to do something you enjoy!

Simple Christmas

Oh to remember the days of past where life was simple.
So were the days of childhood
the delight of looking through the Sears catalog
dreaming of candy canes in the stockings
packages beneath the tree
visiting with family far and near
A simple little Christmas
Can really be the very best!
