Blue Pumpkin

a very "kankerdoodle" rug

not sure of the background
or any details along the border

just a fun rug to hook! 

of course Saundra was first in my mind
when I posted the antique rug yesterday
I look forward to seeing
her hook it

Itty Bitty Kitty

the first one of my three little rugs
started and finished the hooking on this one

the gold green mix is one of my favorite backgrounds

hope you're having a good night!

Antique Rug Show

all the images in today's post are from Pinterest
antique rugs are my favorite
whether seen for the first time
or many times before
I learn something from each one

I have three little rugs to hook
on one piece of linen 
after that who knows...
I'm very taken by the white cat with flowers

Swap Rug

Village Pear Tree
pattern from Woolen Memories
approx 24 x 32

Rhonda received her rug this morning 
 can finally share a photo
(provided by her since I forgot to take one of the finished rug)

I had a lot of fun hooking this
using a lot of strips from my stash
cutting mostly background and blue for the house

  I did have to change up the pears
from my original hooking
they looked...wrong

the only change I made was the pumkpin
added that instead of the fence...

this pattern was initially chosen for Mom
so it may have sat in my stash forever
until this swap came along

so glad I hooked it!
I know Mom would approve
plus it got me back to enjoying hooking again
always a good thing

Favorite Designers

Jan Patek pattern

some of my favorite patterns
are the older ones from 
Jan Patek and Linda Brannock
even a few of the newer ones

deciding what to hook next
I pulled out my stash of their books/patterns
smiling as I think of Mom
wanting to stitch ALL their quilts...

for sure it will have a pumkpin

move to a good home 
where they won't be ignored...
also shipping charges took a big bite out of me

Old Designs

started hooking this years ago
didn't like the hairless linen
so reversed hooked the entire piece

looking over some photos of my older rugs
punch needle pieces
and "rejects" like this 
has me wanting to create them again

so be on the look out for lots of cats
