Happy Friday! Still painting but its going to be so nice and bright. I feel like its a win,win. De-cluttering and getting in shape and also refreshing the house. All at the same time. I think it is amazing how I can always do more than I think I can. Especially when flooring people are coming next week. This is the first time we have ever done this for ourselves. We normally only do this when we sell a house. So this feels so nice to finally be doing it for us. It only took 42 years.
I joined Saundra at Woodland Junction, for a online hook-in. We will all be doing a version of a Granny Donaldson cow rug. If you go to the link above she has the info and pictures of what one looks like hooked. One of the things I love is early Americana and Folk art and antique rugs. I am currently working on Magdalena's Goat, from an antique pattern by Magdalena Briner. Saundra, has a wonderful selection of Magdalena rugs. Here is my progress so far.
Sorry about the glare, its kind of like that today. This is a big rug. This is really different style for me, but I do like it. I try and think about Magdalena and her life and how she hooked for her families comfort and I do it for art.
I got my pattern for the hook-in from Here is my pattern.
I think its very cute and I think it will be fun to hook with others and enjoy seeing the other projects.
Ron is back from his errands. Time to get those paint clothes on and get in gear. Turn on the music and start painting. I am such a slow painter. I am glad he is painting with me because he paints circles around me. But it looks so pretty.
Have a lovely Friday,
