Finally am pulling a few loops; not a lot but it feels good to have the hook in the hand again.
Took a picture of the wool I've chosen to hook my lion (of course that is always subject to change as you know) and even took a picture of the wool.  But the flash made the wool look SO BRIGHT that I chose not to influence your thought on the wool choices yet.  Maybe next post will show you that shocking photo.  

While at Cape May I purchased the Red Lion pattern from Norma Batastini of Heart in Hand Rughooking.  As it is an antique could easily have drawn it out myself, but hey, it was already done for me so why not buy it there ~ no muss no fuss.

The Be Goode Witch has been prepped for binding but hasn't been started yet.

Had one last pattern order to draw today (E S Frost Sheep with Birds) and must stay it is quite a challenge to draw a pattern when the two eyes aren't in sync.   But I've another eye surgery coming up soon (don't know when) so the pattern needed to be done.  

Needless to say I took my time drawing.  You sewers  know that old addage "measure twice cut once"?  Well today it was look twice, maybe thrice and use Sharpie once.

Have a great Sunday evening.  



  1. happy little loops! glad to see you pulling :)
    can't wait to see more ~

  2. I love that lion! I may need to add him to the pile of things I would like to hook.

  3. this is going to be a great rug Saundra...I can barely draw a pattern to sell with tow good eyes!

  4. Sometimes it is fun to do someone else's pattern.


  5. Hopefully the vision will be better soon. Nice you are still earning fun money drawing patterns.
    Can't wait to see more of the lion. I knew you couldn't resist putting something on the frame.
    Hugs :)
