What's On My Frame Right Now?

Sunflowers! Don't you love to see their bright sunny faces growing in a garden?

This is just a part of the pattern Harvest Goode Things, a Spruce Ridge Studios adaptation from Lori Brechlin/Notforgotten Farm's art work. It's available in two sizes but I chose the larger size because I wanted to hook in #8.5 cuts (my favorite size cut right now). The flowers were super-fun to hook and now I'm moving on to hooking the house/roof. I'll post more pictures as the rug progresses. Be sure to check out the other newer patterns such as Love Grows In My Garden, Oh Honey!, and Crow ABC's. They will make you smile!
Yes, the sunflowers are on my frame but my hook has been very lonely this week. I haven't had one extra minute to sit down and work on my hooking. There's just too much going on! I'll be teaching at Star of Texas starting on September 13th and when I get home, I'll be off once again to the ATHA Biennial in Louisville, KY. Please don't miss the opportunity to go to isn't that far away for most of us! The committee has been working very hard to put on a great party and I know there will be wall-to-wall fun everyday. If you can't make it for the whole conference, please come and see the rug show and visit the vendors for a day of shopping. You'll see lots of your friends there! And it only costs $12.00 to see the rug show and vendors. Go to the ATHA website for all the information. Right now I'm drawing up lots of patterns for your fall hooking projects. I'll also be bringing some yummy textured wools, lots of other needfuls for rug hooking, and some hand-carved, must-have pins representing all kinds of autumn motifs from Marlene Dusbiber (you know, all the best dressed hookers wear them)!

Keep us posted on the progress of your rug. I do enjoy seeing work in progress.
Have a safe, fun-filled holiday weekend.
