NEW RUG AND SOME SNUGGLING GOING ON.....


BEFORE BRIAN'S SURGERY I DESIGNED AND 
DREW OUT A BIG HOOKED RUG INSPIRED BY
DIFFERENT ANTIQUE HOOKED RUGS.
I PICKED OUT MY WOOL'S AND HAD EVERYTHING
CUT AND READY GO THINKING WHEN I GOT
HIM HOME IN TWO WEEKS I'D HAVE SOMETHING
READY TO WORK ON. LITTLE DID I KNOW IT
WOULD BE TWO MONTHS BEFORE I COULD
BRING HIM HOME! SO NOW THAT MY FOLKY
QUILT IS DONE I AM WORKING ON MY NEW RUG
AND REALLY ENJOYING IT. HERE IS MY PROGRESS
SO FAR.


 I'M USING FOUR DIFFERENT AS IS 
REBECCA ERB WOOL'S FOR THE BACKGROUND
AND I'M LOVING THE OLD LOOK OF IT.


I'M THINKING I WILL DO AN E-PATTERN WHEN
I GET MY RUG ALL DONE FOR THOSE THAT
MAY WANT TO HOOK IT OR PUNCH IT.
IT WOULD BE FUN TO PUNCH TOO!


 LOTS MORE TO GO BUT I'M USING BIG
CUTS SO IT'S GOING PRETTY FAST. THE HORSE
TOOK UP SOME SPACE!!


NOW FOR THE SNUGGLING PART! THESE TWO
ARE CONSTANT COMPANIONS BUT I DO GET IN
MY SNUGGLES TOO!  BRIAN IS DOING WELL
AND I'M SO PROUD OF HIM! WE THANK YOU
ONCE AGAIN FOR YOUR CONTINUED PRAYERS
AND THOUGHTS FOR US. THEY MEAN SO VERY
MUCH TO US AND WE KNOW WE HAVE COME
THIS FAR BECAUSE OF THEM. PRAISE THE LORD
FOR HIS FAITHFULNESS AND TENDER MERCIES.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

LAYING ON TOP OF ANOTHER QUILT ON MY BED.


 MY DESIGN USING MOSTLY ANTIQUE TIN 
COOKIE CUTTER SHAPES FOR THE INSPIRATION
FOR THE MOTIFS.


LOOKS NICE WITH MY BIG LOG HOUSE
RUG I HOOKED LAST SPRING/SUMMER.

I'VE STARTED HOOKING A BIG RUG
I DESIGNED AND HAD READY TO GO
BEFORE BRIAN'S SURGERY. IT'S INSPIRED
BY SEVERAL ANTIQUE RUGS. I'LL HAVE
SOME PICS OF THAT SOON!

BRIAN IS DOING WELL.  EACH DAY HE IS
GETTING STRONGER AND HIS PT AND OT
THERAPIES ARE GOING GOOD. HE IS 
LEARNING A LOT OF THINGS TO HELP
HIM LIVE AN INDEPENDENT LIFE WITH
HIS PARALYSIS. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR
ALL OF THE CONTINUED PRAYERS.
THANK YOU AND BLESSINGS TO EACH OF YOU.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
