How exciting! Patti Wheeler made the moose that I posted last September. He is just soooo sweet – makes a wonderful Christmas ornament but also stands!!!! really well and could be a freestanding little sculpture. Patti commented that she is back and ready to make more of these so here is her contact info firstname.lastname@example.org. I know there were a lot of people who were interested in the moose so please contact Patti. He is just tooooo sweet!
Today I hooked – well actually I hooked yesterday as well. Felt so good as it had been almost a week that I had not held a hook and pulled a loop. Worked on a few more blocks of my Karen Kahle Apothecary Rose – 4 more blocks to go and the border! This is a bigggg rug! and I am very happy with it. Unfortunately my cats also love it! Everytime I put it down one of them comes sneaking in and lies on it – Karen what did you put in that wool! A little catnip maybe?
Anyway today I pulled out a frame that Gord had attached a couple of carved chickens (done by Doug Purdy) to and I hooked a small piece to go inside the frame. Hooking pieces to go INTO a frame is always difficult – you start off with the exact size marked on your backing but invariably it stretches and shrinks as you hook it. In the end I rehooked the one row border 3 times before it fit – perfectly – inside the opening of the frame. Here is my little chicken mat hooked entirely from my scrap basket! Still have to lace it across the back, put a cover on the back of the frame and THEN glue those chickens in place (one needs a little adjusting as his post is too long! But a fun piece to play with on a lovely sunny day.
