It's me!  I'm still here!  Although feeling a bit sheepish about not posting in such a long time!  You know how hard it is to finally post when there is so much that has gone on in life and you want to tell it ALL!  Well.... maybe not quite all! LOL!
Summer is nearly gone.... but this next week sounds like we're in for some super hot weather!  Time to turn on the AC and get to work in the studio!
I have been hooking a little bit and getting the studio ready for our Fall classes here.  In fact I have a few ladies coming next Friday( August 30th) for their first try at rug hooking.  The class starts at 1:3o pm and I could take a couple more students if you have been thinking about taking a class. Just shoot me an Email for more information.

Here is a rug I just completed and am getting ready to bind.  It is a quick design I drew up for something new to hook to get me motivated again!  I hadn't picked up my hook for well over a month this summer!  I needed a fun and simple design that would hook up quick!
  For some reason sunflowers call to me this time of year!
And punkins and blackbirds!
They all made an appearance in this design.
I had to call this rug "Big Sunflower".

I love them and they are so fun to hook!  "Big Sunflower" is about 19 1/2 by 22 inches.   I don't think I will be offering this pattern as a paper pattern at this time  but I will draw one up on linen for you if you should like the design and want to hook your own.  
Email me with your request and I'll send you a PayPal invoice.  
( The cost will be 42.00 plus shipping)

  I have some new photos of the shop to show you in my next post!
Now.... I better get to binding.
Talk soon!
