What I'm Working on Wednesday.......

Not much I'm sorry to report! As is par for my course, I started another rug before I finished the 20 that are in my art studio.....do any of you have the same problem? Once I have the color planning done with the rug and have hooked on the rug enough to know that the wool will work, I set it aside to start another rug. Here the latest rug on my frame.


A closeup of the face...............



It is my rendition of the antique Santa and Reindeer pattern that is so popular. As many of you know, I have an affinity for sheep so I added a cute little one into this rug. Once I get this guy hooked, it will be available as a pattern....

And of course alot of my time was focused on finishing my Creative Rug Hooking Blog Challenge. Here is a picture of the finished project. More detailed photos can be seen in a few posts back.



I made a little progress on my hit or miss snowman ( and I do mean little!)....



This is a Christmas present so I must work on this little guy pronto!

And last but not least is a cute little snow guy that is almost done......I'm hoping to find a little time to finish all three of these over the holidays.



Many Blessings to you. Maria

Hi Maria - really neat pieces you are hooking right now - love them all! esp. like your wide cut hit-or-miss background for your snowman! BTW, just picked up the newest EAL magazine with the rug hooking article. Such a quality article with great rugs and interesting stories - thanks for taking part! All of the designers/teachers in the article are my favorites - nice to see all of you in such good print!! sandi in texas
