Catherine recently finished her Joni Black Market Day hooked rug – it turned out beautifully…This is part of a seasonal set – winter, spring, summer and autumn…

and Wendy D finished her fun floral sheep – one of my kits but in HER colours and I love it…and yes, if there is a kit you see, but you prefer other colours, please email me – I am happy to change up the colours and make it YOURS…

I finally mounted Tree in a Pot – took me months of having it on my table in my studio before I finally decided that I did not actually want to put it in a picture frame – instead I mounted it to a vintage muskrat skin stretcher that has lovely patina. The frame will house something else one day…

Progress on my newest rug – design from a book by Rebekah Smith but widened to fit under my shelf in my living room. I am soooooo loving working on this piece – I think it is the challenge of something new. But, if it is going to be one of the pieces I work on at our retreat in a month I NEED TO STOP. Fortunately, I have two antique rugs to repair and a rug to hook for a friend and, yesterday, I had the privilege of teaching a finishing class in Martintown. These ladies are lovely and took to the different finishing ideas like ducks to water. So now I have a pile of samples from the class that need to be finished!!!!! so more projects to work on… show bindings, prodding, braided edges and appliqued edges.

  6. LOVE your Tree in a Pot finish!

  7. Hi Loretta,

    I hope things are well with you. I thought I’d share my hooking of the pattern I purchased from you a few months ago, the Follower. I had such fun hooking this with all the beautiful colours and the whimsical pattern. I hope I did it justice.
