A Domestic Zoo wins a Ribbon

My friend Mary hooked Domestic Zoo and entered it in the the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and won Second Place.  Congratulations Mary!!!!!!!!!  This is a picture of the beautiful entry and ribbon. 
Now that Mary knows what the judges are looking for and nit picky things she knows to correct, she plans to enter it in the Maryland State Fair.  So check back later to see what ribbon she gets next.

Okay, I've been remiss in posting a picture of the spiral hit and miss chair pad.  That is because I've been busy drawing patterns for someone ~ I've drawn 23 and have 10 more to do before I leave for Woolley Fox rug camp.  Since these need to be shipped before leaving for camp I can't be having fun hooking OR even getting ready for camp.

So, here is what has been accomplished so far on the chair pad and it seems like so far to go to finally finish even tho I see the area of the spiral getting thinner.
I truly do like the look but hate hooking it.  Hit and miss takes a lot more effort than you would think.... UH, or than I thought.  There is still the hit and miss geometric I started over 7 years ago which still needs to be finished but don't think that will happen any time soon.

No more drawing of patterns tonight, gonna have din-din, walk the boy Ben and hook more on the %#!?# spiral chair pad.

Hope you have fantastic evening.



  1. Oh, but how great it looks!

  2. Oh, you are so close!!!
    That's a lot of patterns but a hooker's gots to do what a hooker's gots to do to support her habit.
    Hugs :)

  3. Love your spiral but I agree ~ hit and miss is anything but that, for me!! Draw those patterns, girl ~ look at it as Woolley Fox money!!!

  4. Congrats to Mary, her rug is WONDERFUL!
    You are almost to the finish line, and it is looking great!
    Wow, lots of patterns to draw, you'll need that CASH for more STASH!

  5. Oh WOW! what a beautiful rug & many accolades to Mary on taking home a ribbon ~ Your spiral makes me dizzy just looking at it ~ but in a GOOD way!!!
