live simply - thank you!

I have been having trouble posting comments on blogger sites, not just wool snippets. I am asked to sign in, I do and then it goes to my dashboard, where I click on go to WIP blog and it asks me to sign in again.... frustrating!

So, I will try this way to say thanks for the kind words on my Live simply rug. I have no idea where this will show up, but since I was given the option of posting to WIP via email, that's what I am doing. If it ends up on my page - or Lauri's - argghh.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks, all, for the kind words!

cheers, maureen

Donkey for the Noahs Ark Project

I like to take photos as I work to see what needs changed and I see a few things in this that I will be changing. But this is the front side of the donkey body.

Finished Live Simply! [finally]

I finished whipping my live simply rug last night and it was on the floor next to my bed this morning - and it worked - I smiled and loved the feeling of it under my feet instead of the icky carpet we inherited the house with. The fact that the sun was shining, after three plus weeks of solid rain, grey and fog may have had a little to do with it as well. I am so glad it is finished, not only because now I can use it, but it was getting to be a pretty warm and heavy project for the summertime.

It didn't make anywhere near a big enough dent in my leftover woolly worm baskets, though, so another scrappy rug is in the cards sometime soon. This is mostly #6 & 8 cut as-is wool, some hand-dyed, on primitive linen. Approx 2 ft x 3 ft; whipped with wool yarn from Cottage Craft Woollens, here in St Andrews, New Brunswick [Canada].

More info is on our Quoddy Loopers group blog.

Happy hooking, all!

Happy Independance Day!

I wanted to wish our American friends a safe and family filled Independence Day. I pulled out my patriotic UFO a few days ago to work on and have attached a picture. The pattern is "Old Glory" by Monica Jones of Folk Art Landing. I thought it was apropriate to work on it this weekend!

Hugs to all, Lauri
