BIG LOG CABIN RUG


I STARTED HOOKING THIS HUGE RUG
A FEW DAYS AGO AND WANTED TO SHARE
MY PROGRESS.  MY FRIEND PAM IN DELAWARE
IS HOOKING IT AT THE SAME TIME I AM HERE
IN MICHIGAN.  IT WILL BE FUN TO SEE HOW
DIFFERENT THEY LOOK USING DIFFERENT WOOLS.
THE DESIGN IS BY THE LATE LINDA BRANNOCK
AND THE RUG PATTERN IS SOLD 
WOOLY WOOLENS.
I HAVE MY QUILT IN MIND WHILE HOOKING 
MINE.  I THINK THEY WILL LOOK GOOD
TOGETHER.  I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO HAND
BASTE THE LAYERS TOGETHER ON MY QUILT
YET SO HAVEN'T STARTED TO QUILT IT BUT I 
WILL SHARE WHEN I DO!

WE'VE BEEN HAVING LOTS OF RAIN ON AND OFF
FOR SEVERAL DAYS BUT TODAY THE SUN
IS SHINING AND IT'S IN THE LOW SIXTIES.
I JUST GOT BACK FROM A 3 MILE WALK AND
IT FELT GOOD TO GET OUTSIDE FOR A WHILE.

NOW ON TO OTHER THINGS HERE IN THE HOUSE.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

Happy Memorial Day!


WE HOPE EVERYONE HAD A WONDERFUL
MEMORIAL WEEKEND.  WE SURE DID!
WE CAUGHT UP WITH THINGS THAT
NEEDED DOING AROUND THE YARD AND 
GARDENS WHEN IT WASN'T RAINING. 
STILL RAINING BUT EVERYTHING IS SO NICE
AND GREEN NOW.  THE APPLE BLOSSOMS 
ARE BLOOMING AND SMELL SO GOOD.  

WE WANT TO THANK ALL OF OUR MILITARY
AND THEIR FAMILIES FOR THEIR SERVICE
TO MAKE OUR LAND FREE AND GIVE US 
THE RIGHT TO LIVE AS WE CHOOSE.
ALL THOSE THAT HAVE GONE BEFORE AND
ALL THOSE CURRENTLY SACRIFICING SO MUCH
FOR ALL OF US, WE HONOR YOU!

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

NEW CROSS STITCH PATTERNS.....


HELLO MY FRIENDS!  

EVEN THO IT'S VERY COLD HERE...WAS
ONLY 39* THIS MORNING....I'VE BEEN 
THINKING ABOUT WARMER DAYS.

I'VE JUST FINISHED SOME FUN AMERICANA
DESIGNS AND PUT THEM IN LITTLE VINTAGE
FRAMES I HAPPENED TO HAVE ON HAND.

THEY WOULD BE FUN AS PINKEEPS TOO
OR PERHAPS EVEN STITCHED TOGETHER
AND FRAMED AS ONE PIECE.

YOU CAN FIND THESE NEW E-PATTERNS
 ON MY PICTURETRAIL WEBSITE WITH PAYPAL
BUTTONS FOR EASY PURCHASE.
IF YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE WITH THE BUTTONS
PLEASE DO EMAIL ME AND I CAN SEND YOU
AN INVOICE FOR THE DESIRED PATTERN/PATTERNS.
