Repeat Snowman Rug

I had all the wool to make another snowman rug. It is a fun rug to hook. It's on Ebay.
I'm still full after eating Thanksgiving dinner. I was feeling good until I ate dessert, pecan pie. Today I shopped online, haven't went to stores on black Friday in a few years. Have a great evening!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! I love this time of year. We are going to my mom and dad's for Thanksgiving. My mom does all the cooking and baking, she is a great cook. I offered to bring something and she said no.
I finished this rug and listed it on Ebay. It is another Country Stitches pattern. Hope everyone has a great holiday!

Ice Skating Snowman

I think this is the cutest pattern. It is a Country Stitches pattern. Yesterday I dyed the wool for the snow, it turned out just the way I wanted it to.I still have several patterns that I want to make that have snow in them. So, the wool I dyed will be perfect. I listed it on Ebay.
I hate to sound like a broken record but, I can't believe Thanksgiving is Thursday!!
Christmas shopping begins!!! YIKES!! I do love the holidays though.
Have a great evening!

Old Santa Rug

It is getting dark so early but, I am getting used to the time change. I'm going to bed early because I'm meeting friends tommorrow to do fun stuff. Today I hooked most of the day and finished this rug. It is a Polly Minick design, I love this design. I listed it on Ebay. Have a great evening!

Red Tailed Hawks

This is my son, Tommy (right) releasing 2 juvenile Red Tailed Hawks. It is amazing to me all the things he does. It is wonderful that he has a job he loves. These 2 were trapped because they were hanging out at an airport. Tommy relocates them so they don't get caught in a plane and create a crash. I think they are beautiful.
I'm hooking and hope to finish another rug today, we'll see. You never know what will come up today. Have a great day!

Woodland Santa

It's turning out to be a busy week for me. Starting out today my son's truck decided to break. While he was working, mom was hunting for the part. I had to order the new alternator and I will pick it up tommorrow morning. No one wants me to work away from home because mom is the Gofor person. If you live on a farm you know what I mean. I did manage to finish hooking this rug. It is a pattern by Bonnie Sullivan called Merry Christmas to All. It's actually a penny rug pattern, I think the animals are so cute. I did list it on Ebay. Hope you have a great evening!

This is the latest rug I've hooked. It is a Need'l Love design. I listed it on Ebay tonight. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Santa Reindeer Rug

What a beautiful day! I have been outside most of the day cleaning up my flower beds. It's 3:00 coffee time here at Butler Farms. Every day around 3, I have to have coffee or I start yawning. So I'm taking a little break.
This morning I finished up this santa rug before I started working outside. It's another Country Stitches pattern that I bought last year and never made it. I think it turned out good, I love Brenda Gervais patterns!! It is originally an oval needle punch, I made it rectangle and added the star. I used alot of the wool that I dyed last week. It's on Ebay.
Hope you are having a great day wherever you are!!
