Autumn Rug

I'm getting in the mood to decorate for fall. I usually don't plant mums but, this year I will since all of my impatiens died. They got Downy mold and the drought took a toll on alot of my other flowers.I'm looking forward to next year. My tomatoes did well though! I want to publicly apologize to my Golden Retriever, Maddie. I thought she was killing my chickens and it wasn't her. It was a possum. Hope to get more rugs hooked. I did finish this one today. It is a Buttermilk Basin pattern, it measures 10.5"x 21". I hooked another one like this but, this is a new design. I got some other patterns of hers also. Love her designs. Hope everyone has a great week!

Witch Rug, Chickens and Puppies

Friday... that was fast!! I have been REALLY busy this week around Butler Farms- that is for sure! I did finish this rug. It is in one of Lori Brechlin's Not Forgotten Farms OOP booklets. This is a design I have wanted to hook. There's a few more that I've never hooked in some other booklets.
The chickens.... that isn't going so well. We have decided we cannot have free range chickens here on Butler Farms. Maddie has never bothered the chickens till she had puppies. Last night they came up on my porch and roosted.
I registered the puppies online thru AKC, just waiting for the papers in the mail. They are so fun. They will be 7 weeks Sunday. Some one picked one out last night and we painted his toe nails with polish-he looks pretty HA!! Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Julie

First Fall Rug

It has been 6 weeks since I last mowed our yard!! We did get rain a couple days ago so, I need to get out and mow. Today I finished a fall rug.It is an adaption of a pattern in one of Lori Brechlin's OOP booklets. I REALLY like it! I have got lots of fall designs to hook.
This is one of my fairy gardens. It's doing well in the dry weather. Have a great week!

This morning Lindsay and I took our 10 puppies to get their first vaccinations and checked out. Everyone is healthy. They will be 6 weeks this Sunday and are growing so fast. They have been keeping me busy.
My flowers are hanging in there, not much rain.
It is supposed to rain Sunday- keeping my fingers crossed. Have a great weekend!
