Finishing Projects, November 15, 2020

If you are like me, you have many projects on the go at once. It is so much more fun to start something new than to finish something that perhaps you no longer find joy doing, is difficult, makes you think, new zoom course, etc. We have many reasons why we have many projects. It weighs on us unconsciously I believe. It weighs on me I know. I was taught at a young age, 'don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today'. I do most times try to follow that theory. I find I don't have as much time for Rug Hooking as I use to as I am very busy dyeing wool fabrics and yarns for my customers, which I enjoy as much as hooking. I finally finished my Denver Fish Rug. I am so happy having this one off my shoulders I can tell you. I did not enjoy hooking facial features and hope to never be so foolish I'm going to a frame made for it and hang in my studio. I would like to thank Kay LeFevre for transferring my picture with her wonderful transfer method and putting my pattern on rug warp. I use to exclusively hook on rug warp and I've gotten away from it and hooking this rug reminded me how much I enjoy hooking on rug warp.

I had ordered up a couple of santa patterns from Susan Barker because when I saw hers, I had to have one of my own. Last night I hooked and put together these two cute Santas. Thanks Susan!


I now have no more excuses to not get back at my Christmas Tree Skirt I started in January of this year. I had the pattern two years it was time to getter done! You may recall me posting two other ladies who were and are hooking this pattern by Christine Little of Encompassing Designs Studio. Marilyn Porter had finished hers and I had posted a picture and Barbara Himelman is working on hers still but I think she is ahead of me. I will have to ask her for an updated picture. For now, here is my update.

In the mail this week, Kim MacKenzie is working away at her rug, it is shaping up wonderfully.

Have a good week everyone!
