Camp Rug and Ducks Rug

Honey's, I'm HOME!  

Got home late yesterday afternoon and Ben was waiting for me at the house/garage door since he could see me when I pulled into the driveway.  I gave him a huge long hug around the neck and lots of rubs and he licked me from head to toe (Ben loves to give kisses).  Camp was loads of fun, as usual, and I'll talk more about camp when I have more time. However, did want to post a couple pictures and say, "hi" to everyone. And, needless to say, I've not had time to read anyone else's blog so am sure I've missed out on a LOT of good pictures and information.

This is the rug I started at camp; it is called Wee Folk and is a design of Vermont Folk Art Rugs.  This rug will stay this way for a while because I want to finish the Ducks and Egg Nest rug, need to finish up the sheep rug someone wants me to hook for them, and have over 100 patterns (smallish ones tho) to draw up for someone who needs to kit them up and ship before the end of October, so I'll be quite busy.
And this is just about finished.  I haven't checked for vacations on the back yet plus I'm rethinking the nest colors.  My plans were to take some creative license with the nest because it had a lot of black in the nest in the original antique, which I didn't want.  When I put it on the floor to look at it again was thinking that maybe the ducks and nest would flow better if I pulled out the most yellow of the wool in the nest and replaced it with the duck color.  So if you have an opinion I would love to hear your thoughts.
Took lots of pictures and have lots to tell you, but tomorrow I MUST cut my grass so not sure if I'll have time to spend that much time on my blog, however I might post a few pictures.

Thanks for stopping by and will post more later.

    I am not one to do much reverse hooking and I think your duck rug looks just perfect the way it is.
