What I have been working on..

a rug of our dog, Daisy.  Here is the rug with Daisy hooked and a bit of adapting.  The pattern is by Margo White named Dog with Flowers and is 22" x 36". 

I wanted her name in the rug so decided to not hook the flowers over her back and put in her name.  Then I thought the flowers should be daisies so I redrew the flowers.

I am really happy with the way Daisy has turned out.  I especially love how her ear is!

The other photo worthy thing I did this month was I baked a blackberry pie.  I like baking pies but I never am able to get the crust rolled out without it pulling apart and just other wise looking like a 3 year old made it - my baker Grandpa would not be proud of my attempts.  This month's pie though came together awesomely.  I took a picture before I baked it because I was so proud and shocked at the result.  Almost looks good enough to be in a cookbook.  Grandpa would be proud of this one!  :)


  1. Your rug looks so fun! That Pie is one GOOD LOOKING pie! Makes me want to go make one!

  2. Thanks! The rug IS fun and is hooking up quickly. The pie tasted as good as it looked. :)
