It isn't Christmas but here's Santa

Guess it is about time for me to find another rug to hook since Christmas is long gone.  However, the last several years I've wanted to have this antique adaptation on my harvest table during the Christmas holiday but never had one hooked.  Well by golly I'll have one next year and this is what I've accomplished so far.  Now it's pretty much the boring background and narrow border to hook.
And I've been designing something else but haven't started hooking it yet.  It will be a very primitive and naive adaption of something from the 1800's and that is all I'll say for now since I've nothing to show.

Thank you new follower's for joining me.  It puts a huge smile on my face every time I see an additional follower to the fold.   And for those who take precious time from their daily life to post a comment I want to thank you ~ Comments are always appreciated. 

AND, questions are welcome too.  Sometimes when I'm explaining a technique, there might be something small that I've left out. 

Hard to believe that earlier in the week it was in single digit temperatures and today it reached 65.  Now, it did rain, but it was warm and I'll take that over snow and frigid temps any day.

Have a great rest of weekend everyone.



  1. this is the only Christmas rug I have ever wanted to hook....didn't get it done this past year, maybe this year, your rug is beautiful!

  2. 65??? We were up to near 50 & that felt like a heat wave.
    Looking forward to your next project. You are just a hookin', just a fool.
    Hugs :)

  3. I think we hit mid 30s - 40 yesterday. Its wonderful compared to the -17 of couple days ago. Love your Santa. Very handsome.

  4. I am glad you are continuing on the Santa Rug, Next year you will be so glad you did !
    We had thunder storms all day yesterday ! Amazing weather...
    I am just so happy to not have to turn on the heat ;)
