My Dilemma

Okay, this is my dilemma.  My newest rug/mat
would more than likely be used on a wall. 
So I'm wondering if I should
add some tongues across the bottom.  I think
I would like the tongues
but would like some other opinions.  
This was a really quick mat,
and I so enjoyed hooking the background straight
 across.  I temporarily attached one of the
 tongues just to get an idea of what it would
 look like.......  And I like it. 
Let me know what you think..... 
This one is a little brighter.   It will be for sale at We Three's
booth behind the James Creek Gallery store
for the Colonial Festival in Volant, PA next month. 
Volant isn't far from the Ohio border.  So if you are
anywhere in the area stop and check it out. 
Kathy Graybill will be there along with
the Treharn furniture makers and Ginger
Cazan redware just to name a few. 

I belong to a rughooking group and we will be
meeting next Thursday, so I hope to
have some pics of the (are you ready?)
"Girls Gone Wooled" primitive rug hooking group. 

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend everyone. 

Be back soon,

Better Late than Never.....

I know it's been quite a while since my last post.  My life was a little crazy for a
time but is now starting to settle down a bit.  I have been doing a lot of hooking.
I finished the rug I was hooking, Simple Pleasure, and
listed it on Etsy and it sold a few weeks ago.......Yeah!!!!

I also just finished a new mat and will get a picture
posted soon......

It is almost that time again for James Creek's Colonial Festival.  It will
be held on Saturday, June 23 in Volant, PA.  I'm hoping to
get more information.  I will be there with the twins, Karen and Sharon.

Last week the three of us had a hooking day at Sharon's.  It was a perfect day and I
just couldn't resist taking a few pics.  Sharon has a gorgeous place.  We've
spent many days hooking in her yard.  We were busy
hooking for the festival.  Karen is doing a cute chicken which, I think,
is destined to become a pillow.  Sharon loves bee skeeps, so that
is what she is working on.

I'm also posting a picture of my completed rug, Simple Pleasure.  I really enjoyed
hooking it, and now it has found a new home.......

The pattern for Simple Pleasure is available on my Etsy.....check it out.
I will be adding more patterns soon .  

I hope wherever you might be that you are
enjoying a day as beautiful as it is here.

Take care,
