Sincerely Jane Update

Well I'm not sure this will be a successful post since Blogger has had a melt down of sorts over the last two weeks but here we go.  Since it is near June and I'm supposed to post a current picture of my accomplishments on Rughookers Yahoo thought I'd better pull a couple loops. 

Now, really folks, I'm yearning to hook on my E.S. Frost Sheep rug but still other responsibilities are close at hand.... for instance, tomorrow I have to set up at 8 a.m. for the Heritage Day festivities where there will be civil war reenactors, mansion tours, horse drawn carriages, olden timey crafts like broom makers, soap makers, basket weavers, to n ame a few and............ uhhhhh, rug hookers.  So my van is packed and I'm taking something completely different to hook while there so it will give others an opportunity to pull loops on a rug.  Well, I certainly don't want any newbies pulling loops on my sheep so will take a generic piece for them and me.

So, here is what the Sincerely Jane piece looks like now.
And as you can see, I've completely changed my 2" border to a 3" border.  The reason for that is because the hooked squares are 4.5" wide and the 2" wide border was not pleasing to the eye.  I hooked some places and ripped it out.

On the other hand, I couldn't have a wide border as with Jane Stickle's quilt because my rug is too small to take such a commanding wide border.  But it did require at least a 3" border and as wide as the 4.5" squares to make it pleasing to the eye.    The other issue is that I cannot choose any of Jane's border designs because my rectangles are too small to accommodate that~ ~ ~  so I'm having to design my own simplistic designs.

Hopefully Blogger will geth their 'slip' together so we can have full access to this communication.  And I just did the spell check and no yellow popped up.  So then I purposefully mis typed a word and did the spell check again and NOPE!  Didn't recognize the misspelled word.  So don't know what you'll see or what you'll read but I'll attempt to publish the post right now.

Over and out!


  1. I love the border so far. Enjoy the Heritage Day festival...sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. The border is perfect for this quilt rug now that you've changed it!
