Taking My Time

With all things enjoyable you want to make the pleasure last ~ you want to take your time.  That is how it is with hooking a Magdalena rug.  

Okay, okay, so some time this week was spent Mother's Day, same day as my Daughter-in-Love's birthday, at their house. had a pattern to draw.  But that does not take away from the enjoyment in hooking a Magdalena rug.

This is my progress so far.
If you scroll down to previous posts you can see the original rug hooked by Magdalena Briner Eby.  This design is known as "Great Granddaughter's Rug" since it was passed down from the family to Ellen, the granddaughter.

From a past hooked project......Someone wants to purchase Cat Nap but I want to fix the eyes and it needs to be steamed and bound.  Call me crazy, but Magdalena trumps money for a few more days.



  1. Hey whatever works for you and if they really want Cat Nap, they will have to be patient 🤣

  2. I am laughing at you "taking your time " hooking. I don't think that phrase applies to you.

  3. I agree with Jacqueline LOL.... ButI DO know the when I get near the end of a really good book....I try to drag it out as long as possible because I don’t want it to be over. Hmmmm....not sure I ever felt that way about hooking...or even stitching...I just want them DONE after a bit LOL. Enjoy your journey! ~Robin~

  4. That's awesome that catnap is sold. Also, bet this one took a bit to draw up as there is so much to it. It should be a fun one with so much going on in it.

  5. that needs to be one of the next ones I hook I think or something like it.
    I haven't hooked in a couple of days so I need to get back at it.

  6. Its so great, saundra!
