Petals and Posies

Yesterday I finally felt well enough to get back to my rug---one thing about not feeling well is that it kept me at home.   This sinus infection has kicked my butt!  So I have finished hooking the rug and am ready to steam and finish the rug---hoping to have it done for the Christmas Party for my students on Wednesday and hoping I am totally well by then.  I plan to lay low for a few more days---two more days of antibiotics.

Here is a picture of the rug I took last night---these are not regular colors for me  but somehow it works in most every room that I have put it in so I m pleased.

 This is the pattern when I started it

This is the pattern with the edges just folded under

I plan on doing a wool fabric binding and hope to get started today.

Here is a link to the same pattern posted on the Woolley Fox website hooked by Pam Fogle---she did a great job on this pattern and it is always fun to see different interpretations---there are also two others on her website.  You will be able to see some of the changes I made to the pattern.  I wish I had taken a picture of the pattern before I started on it.

I woke up this morning and was turned the TV on and hit on the HSN show.  I did something I have never done---I ordered a handbag---but I went to their website to do it.  I have never purchased anything from any of the shopping networks but I have been in the market for a new handbag and really liked this one---I wanted the grey but it was sold out so ordered the cognac.

Have a great day.

  1. Glad you're feeling better - the only good thing about being sick is that it reminds us to appreciate our normal good health, right? Your rug is awesome!
