Sampler Hooked Rug

Hope everyone had a nice Christmas. It was very busy because Christmas Eve we drive north to Marblehead to my father inlaw's. All of my husband's brothers and sister and their families are there. We spent the evening there then, drive home. Christmas day we open presents in the morning then head to my mom and dad's around noon. We had a nice Christmas.
Tonight I'm going to list this rug on Ebay. The design is from Stacy Nash. I met her this fall at Malabar Farms in Lucas, Ohio. I used to cross stitch but, I like hooking these days. I asked her if I could hook her samplers and she was very nice and said yes. I love partriotic deigns and love the way this turned out.
Hope everyone has a great week!!

Monday Night Hooking

Karen was hooking this Merry Christmas rug. It is so detailed, she used a fine cut. The face of the santa looks like a painting.

On the left is Karen, Stacie, Rhonda, Becky and Katie.

I have been getting ready for Christmas. Monday night I went hooking at Katie's house. The first rug is an adaption of an antique rug. Love the rug!!

Becky was working on a hit or miss. I love the colors she used!!

Thank you Stacie for the ornaments, she needlepunched Merry Christmas across the snowman, it is so nice. Becky gave me a tin full of beautiful cookies and chocolates. She also put a painted snowman wooden spoon. Rhonda made us a awesome apron with a quilted sheep on the pocket. I love everything, thank you so much for the gifts!!!

This is a rug Katie is hooking. It is a fine cut and is really nice!

Another rug that Katie is hooking for her son. It's him snowboarding, she mixed in yarn and ribbon with the wool.

Rhonda, Becky and Katie.

Our Christmas Tree

We are getting closer to the big day! Here is a picture of our tree. My son Tommy went to a Christmas Tree farm not far from our house and cut it down. It is a 10' Blue Spruce, which I love because I can put my heavy Hallmark ornaments on it.

I've got most of my shopping done, just have to buy stocking stuffers. Last Friday night my friend Chris and I went on the Christmas Home Tour in our area. It was a fund raiser for Relay For Life, the money goes for Cancer research. It really puts you in the Christmas spirit! I really appreciate all the work that each homeowner puts into decorting their homes for the tour.

Tommorrow night I'm going to Katie's house to hook. Hopefully I can take some pictures, everyone there is always hooking great rugs!!

Happy Holidays!!

Winter Snowman Rug

Good evening everyone!! It's been awhile since I've updated my blog. I've been busy Christmas decorating and shopping. I'm almost done with shopping and I did most of my shopping online. How easy is that?? Most places had free shipping. I've had the most problems with Christmas lights. Do you have lights that half the string is lit and the other half not working? Went to the store and bought another strand, came home plugged them in and they didn't work. So back to the store to exchange them. It drives me crazy!!
I finished up this snowman rug today. I hooked one last year but, it was smaller. It turned out BIG!! I listed it on Ebay tonight. Hope everyone has a great week!!
