Spent a wonderful day hooking with friends on Tuesday. I played with hand torn strips and so love it – amazing how quickly a piece can hook up… This is a pattern I bought from Betsy Reed – Foxette. I got allllll of this done in about hmmm 3 1/2 hours! with a big fat hook! and strips torn about 3/8 to half an inch wide. What fun this was – now to decide – do I finish her off as a little shaped pillow or do I hook a fun background around her and make her more square (which would definitely be easier to finish and lots of fun! There was a wonderful article in the most recent ATHA magazine by Betsy on how to do a patchwork backing on a pillow and I may play with this…


A few pix of rugs sent to me…

Susan who is sooooo prolific sent me these pix of a few finished pieces…Image 1

A Briarwood Folkart Pattern I carry…Image 2

and Denise sent me a picture of her beautiful rug (a Rittermere pattern)…


and Jennifer’s wonderful Value village find – transformed with a bit of paint and a lovely rug…


As a side note – I have more critters! Tons of little baby frogs – well not babies of course as they have morphed – but I looked in my pond the other day and on almost every leaf of the lily pads there was a lovely little green and yellow frog – all the same size so probably all from the same batch of eggs. Dozens and dozens – which makes me happy as for the last few years we have had very few frogs. Not sure what happened to change things this year but A  HOPPY Pond is a HEALTHY Pond … 🙂 (looked up these frogs and oh my I think they may be bull frogs! I did see bull frog pollywogs in the pond a few months ago – had not seen one of those in YEARS)…

  5. Hi Loretta, definitely would love to see foxette as a pillow! I sure wish I had all your frogs. We’ve had only one or two in our pond this year and we usually have 20-25. Hoping for little ones like you have. I don’t get it…. Krystyne
