Finally Something Finished
I feel like it has been forever since I finished anything.
My rug hooking just seems to go on and on. I enjoy rug hooking very
much but my rug is so big that it seems like I never get anywhere very fast.
I have set a goal for myself to be finished with it by October 1st.
I would like to put it in front of the fireplace. I think the part with
the pumpkins will go faster than the upper part. The part I am
looking forward to is finally getting to steam it. I love so much of
how rugs change the personality once they are steamed.
Last year my project was this one.
I still really love that witches boot and the saying, but
I am terrible at framing things. Well this year when I got
my cross stitch book there was another design by LaDeDa
This one is called Smell My Feet. I loved it just as much.
It had those same boots that I love and it was so much fun
to stitch. I think why it made me laugh, was when I was
a kid and we were going to get to go trick or treating for the first
time without Mom, we had just heard, " Trick or Treat, smell my feet,
give me something good to eat." My Mom must have heard us plotting
about saying that and since it was maybe my idea I got in trouble. You know
the code of Mom's I knew if I said it, someone's Mom would tell my Mom and
I would be so dead, it didn't matter I was in a costume. So I never said it.
But this stitchery made me laugh at it just the same.
Today I decided my little tool box needed some pumpkins
to fill it up. I just loved the way it looked with all of the tiny pumpkins.
You know I think I enjoy this pumpkin thing way too much. I keep
rearranging them and fooling with them.
The picture at the top of the page with that top pumpkin is really amazing me.
It has been a few days since it was picked and it is starting to turn blue. It looks
more silver in the light but each day it is a little bluer/gray.
I will have to plant more of those next year.
I hope to get my act together enough to start getting some sewing projects
finished. With it getting darker earlier I won't be outside as late.
I hope you have a lovely Thursday,
