It's a beautiful sunshiny day in Ohio ~ so this will be a quickie ~ if you can believe that! This is a stair riser pattern that I started last night ~ I loved the colors of the last rug and all those wools were spread out over the work table so ~ you'll be seeing them again! This is a pattern designed by Cindi Gay and is for a challenge at a local hook-in the end of June. Amazing that I would even think of doing it now ~ but it's the fact that all the wool is right in front of my face!

Yesterday, my friend, Donna and I went to about 6 greenhouses ~ we filled her car and mine with lots of pretty flowers ~ last night there was a frost warning so all had to covered for the night! I'm hoping to get some of these in pots yet today ~ half the day is gone already ~ wish I could manage my time better! So, off I go ~ will report more tomorrow!!
Have a good day ~ Alice

That is a good idea for stair risers, different types of flowers. Once my husband gets around the doing the stairs, I want to do a hooked piece and a braided for the foot step.

Hi Debbie ~ I thought to this but maybe not ~ anyway I think your idea is very ambitious ~ you go girl!!
And Linda ~ no, these little bits of wool are actually going to be hooked ~ I just leave all the tails hanging until the background gets hooked in around it. Since this will be on the back of a step, it probably wouldn't work that well ~ if it hangs on a wall though, that would be kind of cute!

Debbie ~ I re-read my comment to you and think I left out some words ~ but for the life of me, I don't what they were!! Scary!
