HOOKED RUGS, SAMPLERS & DOLLS
Well..I've been a little busy...between working and doing house chores...I have managed to do a little hooking and stitching. But first.. I had to post a little picture of my gal pals. Most of them were made by Lori Rippey..the other ones I purchased off of Ebay years ago.
A little hooked rug by Maria Barton. I started hooking while at Sauder last month. He's small and sweet!
I finished my Malabar Farm Sampler...design by Stacy Nash. I stitched it on 18 count linen. Now I just have to find a frame to fit it. Don't mind the hoop marks. I haven't pressed it yet..I know..I know...I shouldn't use a hoop..but I just can't stitch holding the linen like most folks...I end up missing holes, counting incorrectly..then I spend most of the night "unstitching".
Last but not least is the challenge piece from the Sampler Makers group. I'm making three little pinkeeps instead of a wall sampler. I have started on the second one and hopefully, will have them completed by the weekend. Like I said..I 've been busy..now I just have to put the finishing touches on everything.
