Working on Goal #2 for 2015

With A Day in the County all hooked (but not bound yet) was hoping to get the sheep rug completely hooked before the end of 2015 since it was started in September of this year.  I've not been a slouch in the hooking department since managing to hook 3 rugs since starting the sheep.

There's still a ways to go with only 4 days left in 2015, and this is how it looks now.
I'm planning on hooking that sliver moon and having it encroach the border that I drew.  Plans are to eliminate that lower star near the feet which was originally drawn in the rug ~ instead will hook a ground and sky background.

Today I didn't hook a lot since I used this last warm day to work on the leaf situation in the yard and did some laundry. So the next few days will have to work harder at hooking with such little time left.  This one I'm not so sure is an attainable goal to achieve.  So my house desperately needs cleaning but that too shall wait.  Ben doesn't mind the wool dust or his floating dog hair, lol.

Hope you had a great Christmas holiday and weekend with family.



  1. The rug looks wonderful and reminds me to get mine out.
    A friend gave it to me on monks so I am thinking of punching the sheep with wool yarn and then do the rest with hooking.


  2. I love your sheep. You are a hookaholic, or an Ever-ready Hooker. There no slacking for you.
    I hope you enjoyed your Christmas, I know I sure enjoyed mine.

    Well, I'd say if you are going to complete that in 2015, you'd better not sleep. There's a lot of hooking left to do, but knowing you, you just may pull it off. You go, girl.
    Hugs :)

  4. There just aren't enough days in the week to accomplish all I want to do. I don't know how I ever had time to work.
    Your sheep is looking good.

  5. I can tell that border is going to be great !!
    Housework can wait ;)
    I'll bet you will meet your goal !
