It took a late night session to get this little rug finished ~ I was way too tired and decided to add a little dyed hand-spun yarn to the bottom ~ it seemed way too plain so in my delirium, I decided to dress it up! Not sure that's a good thing but it will go to the lake with me this weekend for binding and maybe then I can figure it out!!
This is a close-up of Cilla's pumpkin rug ~ I'm hoping it will give you a chance to see all the different types of materials and hooking technique's that were used! Some of the pumpkin stems are dyed nylon tricot ~ pipe cleaner tendrils ~ lots of hand-dyed fleece! The middle pumpkin is proddy while the one to the right, is hooking that has been clipped open ~ lots of different textures!
Last evening, we went to visit friends and to meet their new neighbors ~ and watch the debate! I expected it to be a little more rousing that it was ~ Sarah did a pretty good job ~ I will be so interested to see what Tina Fey does on Saturday Night Live ~ Sarah didn't give her as much material as last week!! I will be in Pennsylvania rug hooking on election night ~ that should be an interesting evening!!
Tomorrow is our annual Kelley's Island day with our lake friends (although one of the couples can't be there~so sad) It's going to be a chilly day BUT ~ there's going to be an Oktoberfest at one of the pubs ~ I'm excited ~ schnitzel and sauerkraut balls and cabbage and noodles and bratwurst and German potato salad and just maybe - a little German beer!! Yippee ~ sounds like fun is afoot! Hope you have a fun fall weekend, too!
