It was cold here today in Ohio. They say it is going to 80 by the end of week! Today I finished this rug and listed it on Ebay tonight. The design is by Pineberry Lane www.pineberrylane.com she has great patterns. This one is really a punch needle pattern but, I contacted Wendy and asked her if I could hook it. It was very hard to get a photo of the true color of the rug, as always! LOL!
I'm really in the mood to hook and bought a great pattern at the hook-in from Mad Hen Primitives. I also drew a Buttermilk Basin pattern on linen this afternoon. Hope everyone has a nice evening! Happy Hooking!

I'm posting the rest of the pictures I have from the Walnut Hook-in. I don't know who hooked them but, if you click on the pictures it makes them big and you might be able to see the tags.
we bought raffle tickets and this was one of the prizes. Everyone wanted it, you can put your frame and all your hooking stuff in this tote.
This is one of the rugs someone had at the hook-in. The school bus really caught Becky's eye because she is a school bus driver. I think she will probably hook a rug like this someday.
It's raining in Ohio today. Tommorrow it's supposed to clear, so I'm going to be hooking today. I hope to finish a rug. Have a great day!!

It was a beautiful day in Ohio today. I didn't get outside till the afternoon because I wanted to finish hooking this rug. Then I had to go to the Post Office to mail taxes. Finally got outside and mowed. Everything is growing like crazy here, the weeds are really looking healthy!! LOL!
I listed this rug on Ebay tonight. It is an adaption of a Kathy Schmitz stitching pattern. Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin, Ohio had a nice section of her patterns. I love her designs!! I really like the way it turned out but, I couldn't get a picture of the true colors in the rug. Hope everybody is having a great week!
