I hope you are having a nice Labor Day today. We have accomplished a good deal of work. The garden is mostly tore out and the sunflowers are all gone along with the zinnias. We took out all of the pumpkins and it was the worst crop ever and I don't know if they will last very long. It got so hot and I wasn't paying attention so when I went to pick pumpkins, I had squash beetles swarming under every pumpkin. I just hate those creepy bugs.
I worked on my Sassy Sunflower rug this weekend. I bought the pattern from Cathy at Red House WoolStudio. I really enjoyed working on this. I am going to turn it into a pillow I think.
I wanted to use only the dyed wool that I had done myself. It was really loud and bright when I was hooking the colors but as I did the background it toned it down so much. I live in a house where I am the only one who likes Primitive and everyone liked it with the loud bold colors and when it became a bit toned down, they all sort of complained because it wasn't bright anymore. I like how it turned out.
Okay, I have to share a picture, I was taking pictures of my rug and Spike our dog who lives out side kept telling me he needed his picture taken. So I said okay, so here is a picture of Spike.
We went to a Christmas Party one year and he was a white elephant gift. We fought over him and I am happy to say we got to bring Spike home with us. He is the best dog, not to mention he has a candle holder that you open in the rear under his tail. I do feel funny when I am changing the light. If you notice he is a boy dog too.
I just thought you might like to see him. We are all pretty crazy about Spike.
I hope you have a very nice unlabor day, and you are getting to rest.
