Yeah! :-)

Friday! I thought it would never get here. :-) By the time I get home from work tonight I should be ready to start on the bottom of Alphabet Sampler - it's going to take a while because there is a ton of stitching there. I have no chance of finishing it this weekend. :-) Way to many other projects going on.
I'm almost done with my house. The I'll do the vine and then start to put a row of background around the house and the vine. I'm following the advice from the kit maker - she included some nice instructions with the kit. I can't wait to take my drive tomorrow to the rug store. It's located inside a primitive style decorating type store. I just wish I had more money this week. I could go crazy in a place like that. :-) I'm hoping to pick up my second hooking project. :-) I guess this hooking thing is going to become a regular feature in my life. I have so many design ideas that I want to do. And there many that I can draw myself because they are basic quilt squares or penny type rugs with primitive cats and birds and such. I REALLY want to do a prim pug rug.

Also on the list for the week - piece together at least six more blocks from my Paintbox Squares quilt, strip all the darks and mediums for my log cabin quilt and piece a few more baskets for my mini quilt.

And of course hook and stitch. :-)

Enjoy yours!

If you figure out a prim pug rug ~ LET ME KNOW!!! I will send you a picture of one from the rug show at Sauder Village. It was fantastic but I would not consider it primitive. I think it was hooked with about a #6 cut to get the detail. That's like hooking with spagetti!
Pug hugs :)
