It's been a while.....

Is it really September?  Fall just around the corner?   I'm not looking forward to what comes after Fall, so I'm not going to think about it right now :).

It sure has been a while since my last post. Pretty busy Summer.  Lots of remodeling going on with our upstairs.  Hubby put down new flooring. Love not having carpet!!  Of course with that, comes painting walls, new trim to paint and all the little things that go along with trying to complete it.  Those HGTV shows  get done in just a few days! Cracks us up lol.  But we are now on to the last thing which is the guest bathroom. Thankfully, it's not something that we neeeed to use, so George is taking his time with it. But it shouldn't be too much longer!  Next year we will focus on the main floor and do a little at a time and as the budget allows.
Here is a shot of my wool room now. I have room on the walls to hang a few more things, and I'm hoping to be inspired to what to create as things settle down around here.

So with the busy Summer, came a slump in creating.  I just lost interest. It sure kept the wool room clean for a while LOL.    My friend Nancee and I decided to do the same rug a little while back and she finished hers before me.  I have since completed mine and have it hung above my jelly cupboard in my bedroom. I love seeing the same rug done in different colors/backgrounds.  Mine is the light background and hers is the dark.  It sure was fun!

Not sure what my next project will be. I am currently working on an order.  The Holidays will be here before we know it, so maybe it's a good time to get started on some gifts. 

Yesterday there was a hook in at Grant St. Woolworks in Chambersburg.  It sure was nice seeing everyone again. With the busy Summer, there have been fewer hook ins. But it's starting to pick up again. Looking forward to next week.  Perhaps I'll get out of my slump and be more creative :).  Always inspiring to be around others and surrounded by ALL that wool in the shop! 

I hope you all have had a Wonderful Summer!  Enjoy your weekend :)

Love the new floor its so easy to just sweep up the wool mess when your done creating! Both you and your friends rugs are lovely it would be hard to decide which background to do as each one brings out different aspects of the rug.
Glad your back, maybe I should update my blog also.

So good to see you post! Love your new floors. You have a beautiful wool room. I love both versions of the rug. I've always wanted to hook that one. I hadn't hooked for almost a year but am almost done with a large penny rug for in front of the couch. Hope to finish it this weekend. Have a great weekend! Hugs, Lori

So happy to see your new post! You've been missed is Blogland! Your wool room is looking wonderful - I love my wood floors too. So fun to see the same rug design hooked by different people - they're both great!

Thank you all for the kind comments :). Felt good to sit and update the other morning. Sharon, I didn't even make it to the Cornfest this year. First time for me I think? Or maybe one other time. Had plans with George in the afternoon, so I didn't want to rush things.
