FINALLY FINISHED!!


I finally feel like I accomplished something!! YIPPEE!! My first rug of the season! It seems like it took me sooo long to finish..I am not a fast hooker anyway, but I just don't seem to have the time in the evening to do anything anymore, plus..I get started on something else. I think I have a problem...it's called "Overwhelmed-ness"! I love this little snowman pattern by Maria Barton of Star Rug company..he was so easy to hook. I love Maria's designs..they are just so darn sweet! I know a lot of hookers have hooked this rug this season....he is adorable...Mr. Hempenstall. I am giving this as a gift to a dear friend. Now..it's onward to my Antique Santa and Reindeer by Maria. Hopefully, I'll get it done before Christmas..

Very sweet. What a great gift for a friend. I haven't picked up the hook in a while though I did just finish a little cross stitch piece and am almost done with a punch needle piece. I just want to get my rug done that I have been working on since March!!! Tomorrow night is hooking so hopefully I can pull at least a few loops!
Hugs :)

What a great rug, Bobbie! Hope you get your Antique Santa and Reindeer hooked. I also like Maria's patterns. Have several to do. Maybe can start on one soon.

I love this snowman rug! Even though we've never met, can I be the friend who's getting this as a present this year? ;)
It is beautiful!
