Oh but it feels so good to finish two blocks of this sorely ignored UFO and feel like I've redeemed myself in some way.  Red Bird didn't get anything hooked today but at least those two unfinished blocks on the geometric are complete now.
When I first started this rug figured it a fantastic way to use up worms and I'd just reach my hand in and pull out colors and hook.  Easy peasy, right?  Nope; not as easy as I thought it was going to be. 

One block starting out is not a problem..... you choose compatible colors to be side by side.  But then the next color inside the block needs to not only compliment the one beside it but you need to choose a light, a bright, a dark and a dull to pull the block all together.

So then the NEXT block you don't want to replicate what you just did with the one you hooked so you toss those worms around until they get in a knotted mess and lose interest and put it away for a few years.  Or at least that is what I did.

But now I'm determined to work on this and not place it 'out of sight' instead will work on it until it is done sometime in 2015, har de har har.

Have a great evening everyone.  Cannot believe the temperatures reached close to 80 degrees today.  Guess we are going from winter to an almost spring and summer.  Hey, as long as I don't have to purchase propane for emergency heat until close to next winter that is a good thing.



  1. the blocks look great! 80 we won't see that until june I was happy with high 40's .

  2. We were in the 60's today. Woo hoo! I even worked in the yard for an hour after work.
    Hooking hit 'n miss is NOT easy. Lookin' good so far.
    Hugs :)
