More Storms

More rain and storms in the forecast. I think that makes for a great start to the last week before Christmas, don't you? It was a red sky this morning and I couldn't really get a good shot of how really red it was today.

I did manage to get a tiny little rug finished. Now will I get it bound before Christmas? I don't know.
It was one that I drew out. It makes me laugh so that is always good. I never knew that drawing shows so much of the inner self. My drawings I think reflect how I feel inside. A bit off balance, things not quite lining up and how funny things make me laugh. It is all in this rug. I guess that is why I like whimsical things. It appeals to my nature.

Just a little silly rug that makes me happy. It isn't very big so it might end up a pillow. Not really sure. It was just an experiment for me.

I hope you have a lovely new week, any time we have storms makes my week that much better.

  7. That is a very cute rug! I am so in love with this weather and the "threat" of storm after storm. I think it's a good soul cleansing after this rough year.

    The rug is very fun.
    Funny, I thought the trees in California never lost their leaves !!
    (With the warm weather.)

  10. I love that picture with the red sky!

  11. That is a wonderful little rug you drew up and hooked! How fun that must be to make up your own designs and then create them in rug yarn. You could do a brisk business in pillows I think if you keep that up! Enjoy the wintry storms; it feels good that winter weather seems to have finally arrived.

  12. How cute! That IS a fun rug! I love the Madeline quote!
