I'm Back!

After several months of "no Posts", I'm finally back in the swing of things and hope to be posting more regularly. I've recently started hooking again and hooked up this little blue bird the other night using all scraps of wool. You wouldn't have believed the huge pile of worms I had accumulated over the years. So I sorted them into color groups and decided to hook a rug using only scraps. I could probably hook 10 more of these little mats. I am offering this pattern for sale if any of you are interested. It is 9.5 x 14 and sells for $22.00.

And I also punched this sweet little Sheep Guy over Christmas break. Sometimes, I'll punch one of my rug designs before I hook it. That way I can color plan my rug before I hook it. I can't wait to hook this one up for you. Maybe over the next couple of weeks.

I'm trying very hard to hook rugs with different colors (rather than my dark background that I always use) and I have a doozy on the frame right now. I can't wait for you to see it. It should be ready in a week or so. Maria
