Working on New Design

Always challenging the time clock I designed this pattern a few months ago but didn't have time too hook it then.  Matter of fact I sent the pattern drawn on linen to my friend Evelyn Lawrence and told her she could hook it and sell the rug but please send me a picture so I could put the finished piece on my web site to show a hooked version.  Evidently she was busy getting ready to teach, for her fun rug camps as well as a show she does in North Penn so it didn't get done by her either.

So, finally I put aside my Wee Folk rug because this has to hurry and get finished so it can be put on my web site as a pattern for sale.  Besides, I'd like to put it on one of my tables for Christmas.  It is a smallish pattern so should go fast.
Obviously there will be some red and green wool hooked in the design too, and had thought of putting the red for the center Christmas ball with blue and green on either side.  Then decided to have the red on one side and green on the other. 

And today am going to play in the dye pots and marry some wool ~ goodness knows how the choice of colors of wools are going to turn out but just felt like experimenting and it is a no muss no fuss way to dye.  Just pick out as is wool, wrap together, put in a pot of water with some laundry detergent (no bleach) and see how it turns out.

Thanks for dropping by during this busy holiday season..... and be kind to one another.



  1. Saundra,
    That is a darling little pattern! It looks like you are going to make it glow!! Can't believe we are really into the Holiday season already..... I had a Christmas design I had intended to have hooked already too..... looks like it maybe won't get past the planning stage this year!!
    Can't wait to see more of your design as you hook!!
    Have a fun time marrying that wool and remember to take a pic of the results!!!

    I am so jealous! You always get so much done. I haven't pick up the hook in almost 2 weeks and now it's time to start decorating. Just not enough hours in the day!
