Welcome May Day One

Hard to believe it is May already.  There have been so many days of rain in a row that I can see my grass grow while standing at the window. Definitely the farmers here need it as the fields were dry a week ago.

Any whoooo, I've been asked by Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) what I'll be hooking at camp with Barb Carroll in just two weeks.  It is a Karen Kahle design called Simple Gifts.  
This is Karen's version of the design.  Don't think I'll make my background hit and miss like that.  I'm envisioning a primitive dark border with similar hit and miss lines ~ but with related dark colors and a light background.  

Now, could be I'll do the Magdalena style curved corners with color, dunno.  I'm taking all the colors of wool in my vision, but who knows what the final rug will look like.

It is such fun to watch Barb's face while her brain works with wool color.  And must say that every rug I've hooked in her class has been a winner.

Am struggling with hooking the checkered flag in my grandson's rug and think once that hurdle has been crossed I'll be home free.

Happy May everyone.



  1. Oh I like that rug! Sounds like you have a plan.

  2. Ooooh I've never seen that pattern before. Can't wait to watch you hook it.

  3. Now that will be a fun rug!!!
    Hugs :)

  4. I love that pattern, that will be fun to hook. I had a kit with the ark and animals that is similar but the colors did not match the actual photo and not enough strips, but it was given to me, so I can't complain.


  5. Great choice! Can't wait to see!

  6. Great pattern choice. Can't wait to see what you and Barb come up with.

  7. Looking forward to seeing your progress on both rugs.
