Thought about what I could do next, and I remember being inspired by Lori's black pumpkins that she posted a picture of. Looking at my wools, I came across a piece of orange wool that I had received as a gift, and it was a looser weave. Hmm, the wheels started turning. I remembered on my trip with Joanne that we saw some pillows that were hooked right into the wool. Sooo, I put the two together and this is what I came up with! I hooked it right into the wool. I just LOVE it!! Was able to finish it up on Sunday after church.
It was a great weekend, and I spent the whole time up in my room. Just wish I had a nice cushy chair up there lol. Maybe not, I probably would never come down LOL. Wouldn't fit anyway.
This morning Nicole and I went over to the Fair and picked up what we entered and our checks too! That was really nice. I had the Chambersburg group today and still have not finished the Birthday gift I've been working on. It will still be a late gift..., but I was able to cut out more and it is now all pinned and ready to be stitched. It's a penny rug. I'll put time into that this week I hope. At the group today, Ruth brought her winning pieces from the Fair to show everyone. She did an Awesome Job!!! Way to go Ruth on your ribbons!! Of course, wouldn't you know it, I forgot my camera. Hubby is home for 2 weeks. Shutdown for his place. Work is slow all over, isn't it? So I wasn't thinking straight before I left the house. But I had a wonderful time just being there and seeing everyone. Haven't been there in a while.
Then later today, I got out a piece of foundation and started to draw up some small designs for mats that I do for Colonial Day in September. I have some cleaning that's been neglected, that I have to do tomorrow. Doing one room all last week sure has put a damper on everything else around here. God only gave me two arms LOL!! But after that is done, I will be pulling some wool for these mats, and hope to start hooking on them too.
That's it for now! I sure hope today was the start of a good week for you all! Get creative, and get busy.........
