Sheep & Daffodil Challenge Update

Guess it is about time to show you the progress on my challenge rug. For those who have followed my blog for a while know what I'm talking about.  For others, here is the skinny.... there is a Facebook group known as Out of Hand Rug Hookers which was started by Lori Brechlin of NotForgotten Farm.  So Lori posed the idea of having a rug challenge. 

There has been one challenge so far that provided antique motifs which could be used to design our own rug using those vintage templates.

If you would like to participate in this challenge you would need to request to be part of the CLOSED group where only the participants are privy to the design and prizes.  This new challenge ends May 1st so there is still plenty of time for someone to join.  All you need to do is ask to be part of the challenge by clicking the link above.
Even tho this challenge isn't finished, NOR are my other horse mats and whatever I hooked last are bound, am already thinking about the next one.  Good grief, since no one else is going to bind my rugs I'd better start thinking about really finishing those other projects.  Ya think?

I appreciate all of my blogger friends and have come to think of you as close, like family, even tho we may not have met in person.  My heart goes out to my dear friend Lauren who lost her Ellie this morning.  

Hug your pets and tell your family you love them tonight; life is so short and unexpected.   



  1. Oh no, I'm so very sorry about dear little Ellie. It just isn't fair. Thanks for letting us know Saundra.

    Lauren did everything possible to save her and there's nothing more she could have done. My heart is broken to get this sad new. I was so sure she would rally around and get well.

    Your sheep challenge rug is looking beautiful.

  2. I am so so sad about ellie....
    we all deserve to be loved by someone so special.....
