I am so excited on days I get to turn the calendar, and see a brand new month filled to the brim with new possibilities and new dreams to dream, and new things to make. A new month filled with lots of empty days on the calendar. Well sort of Meg's birthday is tomorrow, the cutest little ground hog in the world with her, little baby soon to come is now just weeks away. My son's 19th gosh, how can time go by so fast?
I finally finished January in the nick of time. It took me the whole month to do this, I just had a mental block against this snowman. Maybe it is because we haven't had any winter to speak of so I just rebelled when it came to making him. It is finished now and I started February last night. I like February a lot more, it has this color called Buckeye Scarlett. I am so nuts about that color of red, I am going to buy five more skeins. So when I like a color it is always easier for me to work on a project.
Do you want to see my rug? Okay, the little bit I have started is this.
Once I get around to hooking, I really enjoy it. It just makes me so happy to get to work with wool and to pull loops. I can talk with the kids when I hook, I can't when I am doing counted cross stitch. You know that walking and chewing gum thing, I am not very good at it.
I know this isn't a very good picture of the whole rug. See all of those letters? They have me shaking in my boots. The book I am using that I got the pattern from has a place where she tells you how to do letters. So I will be following that step by step. I haven't started my rooster rug, just because I am still a bit afraid of it. I am still in the staring at it stage. Then folding it up and putting it away. This will pass but for now, I am just not ready to tackle it. Gene Shepherd is a wonderful teacher and I think his rugs are beautiful but I don't know, I am not ever real wild about his choices of rug colors. It could be because he is the male of the species and he likes his colors bright and loud.
Anyway have a great Wednesday, and thank you for stopping by today,
