Hannah's Hen Near the End

It seems like forever that I've posted little Hannah.  I've hooked a larger piece in a month and this is a dainty wee bit of a chick.  All I can say is it takes me longer to do things and spending time on the computer is a lot of time. 

Here's my Hannah's Hen, a Woolley Fox design.  The hooking will be complete tomorrow morning, it will be steamed and prepared for binding.  Normally it would be ready for binding tomorrow.
But since the weather is supposed to be milder (anything would be milder to what we've had here lately) I need to do some yard work.  There are so many pine cones in the yard after the bad winds that I trip when I walk thru the yard.  Plus the fact it tears up the lawn mower blades.  So pre-spring work starts as soon as it is fit for me to be outside working.

And YES....before I start on my new next project will need to clean up this mess.  It all started so organized with colors in the canvas 3 departmental sorter, and the individual baggies of separated out colors of worms.  Then somehow all the colors get mixed and it is back to separating out woollie worms once again. 
Think I've asked this question before but in a different way.....  This time I'm wondering if there are any rug hooking "neat nicks" that can give me a hint on how to control my hooking worms.  All statements are welcome as I'm willing to learn.  Uh, although I've also heard... 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks.'  Just sayin'. 

Have a fantastic evening and weekend everyone.




  1. Love your hen!
    Too cold here for yard work yet,bbbrrr!

  2. It really is coming together so beautifully. I only cut what I need as I go, so I don't end up with too many. I do love using them for hit or miss pieces, though.


  3. I use clear plastic clam shells to store worms. Easy to stack and easy to see what's inside. I enjoy your blog!

  4. If you find the magic answer in keeping things organized, please share it with me!!!
    Hannah is too cute.
    Warmer here but we can't yet see the ground. UGH!
    Hugs :)

  5. I don't cut ahead either...or very little....but I have mounds of worms. Sometimes I think I should just give them away, but I haven't done it yet.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
