Great New Addition to my Hooking Stuff!!
This is all I can do lately! I don't know if it is the extremely hot temperatures or the fact that I've been spending a lot of time helping my Mom, but all I want to do is sleep. Trying to watch anything on tv is futile, because I doze off before the opening credits roll by! Our daily routines are all crazy since my dh retired...it will take some time to adjust, I guess.
I'm so excited!! I now have a stand for my Puritan rug frame! Cathy at Acorn Hollow recently had some rug hooking items for sale, so I bought the stand from her. I've never tried hooking with a stand until now and I LOVE it. The base slides easily under my favorite rug hooking chair and works wonderfully! The Puritan frame has a larger work area than my other frames, but is fairly heavy when used in my lap. I have rarely used the Puritan because of the bulky size, but now I will be using it regularly. WooHoo!! Thank you, Cathy!
I have just begun hooking my Bishop Hill hook-in rug purchase, a large rug called Posy Pony by Sally Kallin of Pine Island Primitives. Can't wait to make some progress on it and will post progress pictures when possible.
Have a great week!
