Lookee, Lookee........

...what I received in the mail.  This was a Halloween giveaway generously offered by Maria Barton of Star Rug Company.  It arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and of course I had to pull it out of the bag and fondle everything.
Those are the best ever buttons and while it gives the appearance of quilling it takes all the work out of the task of quilling by having buttons to sew.

This is Maria's sample for the giveaway offered on her blog.  I fell in love with the beading she did around the perimeter and the stem.  Only hope I can do as good a job at hooking the piece as Maria.  I've never hooked a white pumpkin before and am looking forward to it.
Since I've still my Shadow Portrait to finish and have already started another project the white pumpkin will have to wait a little.  But heck, white pumpkins aren't just for Halloween, right?

Perhaps tomorrow I'll post a picture of what I've started hooking during my sabbatical from Shadow. 

Thank you for your very generous giveaway Maria and boy was I a lucky one!  I'll post a picture of this when it is hooked.



  1. This looks like so much fun.
    I remember an article in Rug Hooking Magazine that gave a tutorial on how to hook this type of border.
    Have fun with it !

  2. Congratulations on your win. This should be a really cute rug..

  3. That will be a FUN project to work on! Does she make the swirly buttons? Looks like they might be made of sculpey clay....
