Hooking and Quilting




these pumpkins were for sale on eBay
a few years ago...
I don't remember who the seller was...
though I've hooked some myself
these are still my favorites

I'm almost finished with the giveaway rug
soon to start some small fall items 
with pumpkins galore!




This stencil is on my eBay watch list...
considering it for hand quilting
many of my little quilts

I know I could draw my own stipple pattern
but will I?

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

After x rays, tapping and probing 
it looks like my sinuses are causing the pain
started on antibiotics yesterday
now I
 no longer feel like poking myself in the eardrum
with a pointy stick...

rarely do I have sinus issues 
so no netty pot...
will look in to one just in case
 thanks for your warm thought and good ideas

Glad to hear it wasn't a tooth, I have had that happen to me as well, and find out I had a sinus infection, still isnt fun...
I love your pumpkins, will you be selling any at all? I would love to make some if not, but need to find the right color wool..
Feel better soon

I tried that netty pot, didn't like it, so I use the throw aways with saline, much easier and safer. I like those pumpkins too, was thinking I should hook some bowl fillers. When I stipple I just go for it, never use a pattern.

I've got one of those stipple plastics, it's not that great. I ended up buying the stipple on paper. It's sticks to your fabric at the sides and you just sew on the line and then tear the paper away. This worked well.

Hi, yes, so glad it wasn`t a tooth but sinus is really bad to. Hope you feel better soon as the meds kick-in. Love those hooked pumpkins, so so sweet. Blessings Francine.
