One Down and One to Go

Finally bound is the delightful Magdalena find from an auction site.  You long time followers have already read the story about that in a previous post.  
I love the wool yarn used for the whipping.  It was purchased from Ali Strebel (Kindred Spirits) at a class in Cape May a couple years ago.  I purchased a few other hanks but this worked best for this rug and around Stubbs Horse Trainer.  Believe it or not there is still a smidgen left of that hank.
Today I started hooking one of the feathers in the Gossip rug and hope it turns out like my 'mind's eye' sees it.  If not, you know I'll pull loops and re-hook.  I've never had a problem with reverse hooking.

The feather was started late this afternoon so not much got hooked. Today's activity was supposed to be grass cutting.  I had good intentions, even purchased gas for the mower. But that is far as the grass cutting went.  As Lauren (Rugs and Pugs) would say....the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  

Have a great evening.



  1. I wish I was as productive as you are such wonderful rugs

  2. Yahoo...two rugs bound, good for you. No grass cutting here for days due to rain off and on. I will need sheep by the weekend when it dries up.

  3. Good for you for getting another rug finished. My lawn need mowing as we has so much rain, the grass is growing faster than I can mow. I did a lot of work outside this afternoon and I even worked after supper till 9:15 pm. I came in, showered and put on PJs,with a glass of vino and my laptop to bed so I could catch up. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I can do some more gardening.
    I played hooky from hooking today.
    Hugs, Julia
