Spring Gardening

 I have been very busy in my flowers. Spring is my
favorite time of the year.
We have been having a nice spring.
I have been hooking some gardening rugs.
This one is a design from With Thy Needle and Thread.
 Love the way this one turned.
It is a Buttermilk Basin design.
 My Lady Slipper came back, didn't know
since we had such a hard winter.
 Love collecting different varieties of Hostas.
 This is a design by Marte Borteaux.
My son, Tommy, got me this for Mother's day a few years ago.
It is a Buckeye tree.
I can't believe another month has went by.
Our Primitive Handmades Mercantile May update
is Thursday night.
Have a great week.

Farm Rug

I hooked this rug for Anne who lives on
a farm in Iowa.
She raises Black Angus and her farm is named Mamma.
I am happy tomorrow is May 1.
There is a lot going on this weekend.
It seems like everything happens on the same weekend.
Monday is my annual flower shopping
with my sister, mom and daughter in law. Can't wait!!

Hidden House Rug

I love this rug. The design is by Maggie Bonanomi.
Most of it was hooked by Julie Burns, I finished it for her.
This is how I got it in the mail. I just finished it.
All the colors are in the rug are so nice.
Have a great evening!

A Wedding Shower

 I had a busy/fun weekend.
Lindsay came home from Iowa Thursday.
Her best friend Natalie, who is like a daughter to me,
is getting married in May.
Lindsay is her maid of honor.
We rented this cabin at Malabar Farms.
It is where the movie Shaw Shank Redemption
filmed some scenes of the movie.
 I loved her cake-cupcakes.
 Love the way everything turned out.
 The dessert table.
 The bride to be, Natalie.

 This is a pretty light that is in the cabin.
 I potted up plants to give everyone.

Congrats Natalie!

Wet Spring

 This is the latest rug I've hooked.
I bought the pattern at the Hookin in Berlin, Ohio.
It is from Terri Lehmer-Red Snapdragon Farm
I used abut the same colors as she did.
 Love the way it turned out.
 Tommy, Murray and I went mushroom hunting
in our woods.
I think it might be too early, didn't find any.
This is the back of our farm.
Not much field work happening,
It's really wet.
Have a great evening.
