Happy Fall Y'all

Well, wouldn't you know it, I forgot to report the most important piece! I hooked this piece to offer as a raffle prize for the event at Lulu and Lavigne Home Studio on Locke Street in Hamilton.

6 cut on linen; hung on Lake Erie driftwood. Making this #14 of #16in2016. 

Hope it's enjoyed by its new owner. Happy Fall Y'all!!!

Update on #16in2016

So if you remember, I challenged myself to create 16 fibre projects in 2016 (#16in2016). I wasn't doing too well until September came and I had to prepare for a demonstration and sale at a home decor store in Hamilton. The after burners were fired up and well, I think I may be in good shape after all. 

Looking back through the blog, I last reported Fibre Finish #8. Even if I consider the two Holstein mug rugs (see below) as one project, I hereby report Fibre Finishes #9, 10, 11, 12, and 13. You're welcome.

What a Disaster

My hooking room has been a disaster since about mid-August. I've been madly hooking, whipping and generally preparing for an event that happened on September 30th. It was great fun, went well and I was pleased with the results! More about that in the next post.  

Just take a look at this mayhem though. And pics don't even capture the wool dust (I don't think)!

Hooked this Summer

I know, I know....I shouldn't complain about the heat, drought and oppressive humidity. But I do and I will because summer is not my cup of tea. Never has been. I'd rather be cold. For one thing, I'm far more likely to get a migraine with the heat, than with cold. In the winter, I go for walks to "freeze" my head when I have a migraine. So yes, I can say that I am anticipating fall.

I'm going to be giving a hooking demonstration at a store in Hamilton in September. For that, I need a few pieces to show/sell and an item for raffle. So I've been hooking a few pieces and have several more in the line-up.

Nothing too exciting, but here's what been hooked over the last few weeks. #16in2016
