Before I Get Too Far
I thought I better snap a photo and share my latest rug before I get too far along on it! You all know that when I get in a hooking mode and start a new one I tend to become a hooking maniac! LOL! I started this rug yesterday evening and hooked until about 12:30 am. The bear hasn't made a late night visit the last couple of nights! Unless of course you count the hubby out there in the darkness scratching on the window trying to scare me! NOT funny!
You'll recognize the design in this rug as the Clover Buds in Basket rug made famous in the book Seasons at Seven Gates Farm. Hooked many times by others .... my friend Lisa has hooked it twice of course. Well... it's my turn to hook it! I've chosen colors that I think are a bit unusual intentionally.
Hooking in a 8.5 cut it's going nice and quick.
I hope to get a lot hooked this weekend because next week is going to be a busy one. We are preparing for the big Quilt Event held at the St. Joseph's School Auditorium on April 6th. Is the poster in my blog header advertising the show big enough for you to see? LOL! That's a week from tomorrow!
I'm working on a few necessities like some cute shopping bags for our customers! Jill and I are meeting tomorrow to decide on last minute display things and to try and keep each other focused! This is a big event for us and hopefully will be the exposure we need to grow our fledgling business!
I must THANK all of you who ordered my new pattern "The Flower Pot"! They have been mailed and possibly some of you are already hooking it! Don't be afraid to email photos of your rugs! It's my inspiration to see my patterns hooked by someone else!
Hope to see you local friends at the Quilt Event... the food is awesome! It's all home baked and the pies are to die for! Maybe the name of this post should've been "Before I Get Too Fat!" LOL!
