Another Finish & What I Am Working On

Here is a rug I finished hooking in December 2010 but only finished whipping it earlier this month.

I designed this rug and started it at the 2010 Northern Lights Rug Hooking Camp, my teacher was Kathy Morton Mullvain.  It is titled "Rooster" and is 18" x 18", I hooked it with an 8 cut.  I started to realize I was badly packing my loops on this rug, the background is dense! 

Here is what I am working on currently.

I am using very bright, primary type colors - very outside the box for me.  I am really liking it and it is hooking up quickly.  I started this rug on Saturday and last night Kenny said I have been power hooking lately.  So far in the last 4 weeks I have finished my Daisy rug, whip stitched two rugs, finished the background on a rug that has been in my UFO tub for over 4 years and started this rug.  I guess I have found some hooking mojo.  :)

I'm Back & Daisy Rug Done!!!

Happy Belated New Year!!!

Here is my completed Daisy Rug.  A Margo White pattern titled "Dog With Flowers" that I adapted to fit my Daisy dog, 22" x 36", I used 8 and 81/2 cuts.

I am soo happy with the way it turned out - it is my new favorite rug!  Here is a picture of the real Daisy dog, she is 12 years old this year.

I have another rug completed that I will show tomorrow, plus what I am working on currently, it is very bright.

The greatest news is that after chemo & radiation, surgery and more chemo...   Kenny's scans on December 21st were CLEAR of any cancer!!!!  That was great news right before Christmas!!  We again want to thank everyone who prayed for him, thought of him or sent well wishes!
