If you know me, you know that I am nutty about sunflowers. My dream is to have bunches and bunches of sunflowers. I like them because as a cut flower they last forever. Imagine to my surprise in the old leftover leaves what is coming up but sunflowers. It makes me so happy, because I know that when I am sickest of winter, I will have sunflowers there to make me happy. I think that is what I love about gardening is there is always some surprise waiting around the corner.
I love Fridays and this one I have so much planned, who knows if I will get it all finished. I started hooking a rug, and I find I want to sit and do that all day. I went to some rug hooking blogs and they have this neat little button that says something like "15 minute hooker." I wanted it so bad, but have not ever hooked a rug. So my goal is to start hooking so I can have that button on my blog. :) It isn't latch hook, but rug hooking which is from New England and completely a American craft. The only hard part is finding wool. If I was brave I would show you what I have done so far, well what the heck, I will.
So here is my first project.
This is a close up of the hook that you use to hook the rug.
So here I go working toward my button.
