Black Pumpkin and A Black Cat

I'm settling into the fact that it is September. I do like the cooler weather of fall, it's what comes after. I won't think about it. Ha! Anyways, I bought this pattern at a hookin this year. It is a design by Maria Barton-Star Rug Company. I have always admired the same rug that Lori Rippey has in her home. It was fun to hook.
Our cat, Lou, has been setting boundaries with our new puppy, Grady. Lou rules the roost around here. Our Golden Retrievers are scared of him. I had to take a picture, he didn't like it. Have a great day!


  1. I love that rug, Julie! I almost bought it at Sauder...still might order it. I love the colors you have chosen. Cats are so territorial..Lou better be trying to get on the puppy's good side....puppy will be a lot bigger in no time!

  2. Hi Julie,
    Love your new rug and how you have it displayed too! You and Lori (along with so many other talented rug hookers) do such wonderful work!! Some day I will learn but am so happy for all the lovely inspiration!!
    Your kitty looks like he means business!! His eyes are really amazing!!
    Enjoy your day!

  3. Loving that black pumpkin!! I don't dare go looking for the pattern though...need to finish what I've got going. And your cat? HA!! What a face! I'm thinking a Great Dane would be intimidated! Way to take control, Lou!


  4. Hello Julie, LOVE, LOVE that hooked rug so, that black pumpkin is wonderful. Great job, also that black kitty looks like he would rule the roost,don`t mess with Lou, tee hee. Enjoy the day,Blessings Francine.

  5. Julie, you are so sweet to mention my rug. I love the colors you did yours. Lou is giving you quite the look! Too cute! Take care. Love all the rugs you've been showing us. You get so many hooked. Hugs, Lori

  8. Hi Julie,
    I love coming here and seeing all your creations - such fun.
