Back to my UFO

This is a UFO which was started about 2 years ago and had hoped to have it done by this past July for my show in Lewes, DE (a beach resort along the Atlantic seaboard).  But because there was some undesirable wool hooked in here and there I lost interest.  That wool was thready and thin but had such a nice indigo color that I wanted to use it.  Well it didn't work so pulled it out.

So the wool pulled out and I'm hooking it again with the hopes of finishing it before July this year.  Actually I'm hoping to have it finished before I attend Barb Carroll's class next month because I'll have a new love interest on my frame then.

As you can see, I've used the pillow ticking for the eventual binding which was sewn on before hand.  This pattern was offered in kit form several months ago on Polly Minick's web site as part of her Semper Fi program.  And, no, that thready wool was not hers, it was mine.  I've added the word Seaside at the bottom in hopes it will entice someone and make it's way to their beach house.


  1. I love it so far. I esp love the ticking.

  2. Wonderful, the blue!

  3. So glad you're having another go at finishing this great rug! I've heard that you can cut thin wool extra wide - then fold it in half to hook with it - makes a big improvement - especially if the color is perfect for your project.

    Looks great! I don't think I've seen anything that you've hooked that I didn't like!!!
    Hugs :)

  5. What's not to love on this one? Such a cute rug. I love all Polly's beachy stuff!!!!!!!

    Love that ticking too.......
