The top and middle 6"X 8" mats were designed and hooked by my daughter, Rachel. She has only made three rugs, but has done a great job on all three. I made the star rug about 5 or 6 years ago. I've really been in the mood to do some Autumn things lately, so I may pause on my cat rug (which has been a trial!) and move on to something else. I've found that a pause may be just what is needed to clear my mind and maybe see another possibility in color or design element. It is just not coming together as I wished!
If you have not yet gone to Kelley's blog, With Hook & Needle, then you must go and see her recent posts showing her punch needle designs. She is very talented, and I love her new kitty and pumpkin creations. I think she is the reason that I'm in such a Fall mindset!
We had a busy week and weekend. We went to see our son in the Evergreen Triathlon Saturday, and I also watched Kale Thursday while my DIL took Olivia and Allison to the American Girl Doll Store in Chicago. They had so much fun choosing a matching dress for themselves and their American Girl dolls. They had their picture taken (girls and dolls in their new dresses), and it was very cute! If I can get a copy of it, I will post it. They had a great day together.
Have a great week!
