Stubbs Rug Update

One would think I'd be more than halfway done hooking my rug but sadly the trainer still hasn't been started.  But today started designing my grandson's new Christmas Rug and have pulled wool before it is on linen.
For those who may be interested, the dimensions of my rug is 22 x 48. And if you're wondering what that star is all about in the top left, it is not part of the design but rather the spot used to hook a #9 cut star someone asked me to demonstrate.  Figured may as well use the linen on my frame.

Just visited Lori Brechlin's blog and admired her stitchery.  Her post has inspired me to show you a relic I stitched back in the 70's. is a piece of clothing, lol.  Stop back to see tomorrow. 

Have a great evening, sheesh, January 2, 2017.  Wonder how many checks I'll have to change the date on before I remember what year it is?



  1. It's going to take awhile to get used to writing 2017. Rug looks good girlie!

  2. I think it will be easier to remember this year, just sticks in my head for some reason. Love how the rug is coming out. I am a slug today, stitched up a second piece but not energy to finish them.


  3. I never would have guessed your rug was that large!
    I love it.
    Hugs :)

  4. Hi Saundra,
    Wow, it is bigger than I thought, and will be another beauty!! You will have it hooked sooner than you think!!!
    I was making some tags for some things I made and actually got the date right!!! Maybe if I keep thinking about the song......"when I was 17, it was a very good year" and hoping it actually will be (even though I really don't want to be 17 again) LOL!!!
    Enjoy your week, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~

  5. that is a large rug.but it looks great!

  6. For some reason, I thought that your rug was much smaller. Knowing you, you won't make any mistakes on your dating those cheques. You're too much organized for that.



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