Back to the Lion Rug

Well finally I'm posting an updated picture of my lion rug and already I'm trying to decide what to hook next.  Since there's been no loops pulled lately on the spiral rug guess I could always pick that up to work on.
Even tho I know how to do the hidden initials and messages, taught by Bev Conway (previously posted on my blog last year between September and November) I think I'll just hook my initials and date with a dark wool which will blend in with and gently seen in the background.  This rug is getting tedious now since all the fun things are about done.  Only the border lines remain as fun and then the background above the lion will seem to take forever.

Among the rugs I'm contemplating as my next project is the Lollipop Bouquet.   
I love how Kathy of Briarwood Folk Art hooked hers and it looks so old. Click the link to see what she did to make hers look so old. 

Try and stay cool in these steaming temperatures; tomorrow the heat index for the Delaware/Maryland area will be a 'feels like' 110.

Thanks for visiting.  Saundra


  1. Jumping up and down for you to do a LOLLIPOP RUG!!!!!!

    Oh, I am absolutely lovin' your rug!!! You are so close :) You may have already said, but what size is it? It looks rather large.
    Kathy does a marvelous job on hooking old-looking rugs. She has drawn a pattern for me that I was going to take to camp, but I think I am changing my mind. I'd better decide soon!
    It's steamy in Ohio, too, but it is supposed to drop the the lower 80's on Sunday. I love summer but this is a bit much for me. I can't imagine what it must be for those who don't like even a normal summer!
    Hugs :)

  4. I'm with you, once I do the "fun stuff" it's hard to keep hooking....I need a rug full of "fun stuff" to work on right now! Love how the lion rug is coming those trees on the sides!

  5. Wow Saundra, It looks wonderful!!! I just found an old Edyth O'Neill hooked rug pattern in a old Early American Life magazine. I found it at a thrift store!Cheri
