Sandra sent me pix of her scrappy Cat’s paw rug – it will become the topper for a stool and once the upholsterer is done she will send me the updated pix but I wanted to share this wonderful way of using our scraps in a fun, colourful way…

This week I was on a roll and finished mounting my Loon punch needle in an old primitive tray. Once it was mounted I inserted cork board in the bottom and Gord cut and affixed a piece of wood to separate them. A great way of making your punch needle a functional piece of art…

Edie finished her first wearable mitten done in a class with Winnie Glavine …

Dolores finished her scrappy rug into a wonderful pillow – another great way of using up your bits and pieces…

and 2 lovely pieces by Karen…

and finally – delivered this kit to Wendy yesterday at 830 and by mid afternoon she was done hooking – today the fun part of putting it together…

Off to our fall retreat today so hope to finish off the two rugs that I have been dyeing to get done… it will be a wonderful weekend with good friends, good food, good creativity and good BEDS! 🙂 … will post pix next week of show and tell…

  1. Beautiful. Perhaps looking at these pieces I will be motivated to finish something. I have so much that is unfinished. Hooking done and they are just sitting there glaring at me. hokum

  2. stupid auto correct. I meant ho hum!

  3. Great rugs! Have a great retreat Loretta. What a nice way to ease into the cold weather and the Christmas season 🙂

  4. Oh my!
    How do you pick a favourtie….
    I’m always amazed what folks put together with scraps – beautiful cat paws and squares.
    And lets talk about those mittens….
    and….sweet, sweet tree.
    Thank you for posting ALL of these wonderful examples of what hands can create.


  5. Love seeing everyone’s work. Sadly not doing any hooking right now. Waiting for a shoulder replacement – reaching under the frame comes with a $$$pain price… Once I get some artificial parts, hopefully I’ll be hooking hardy!😊

  6. All lovely what a wonderful way to use up odds and ends Tx for the idea

  7. Christmas tree pattern and kit? Good morning from Sooke, BC I love the Christmas tree project. Do you sell the pattern only? Thanks Christien
