This little rug was started a year ago ~ I had done one tree and the windows and then put it aside!  Tuesday night, I made this much progress and last night, I hooked everything but the area where the words are!!  Yay!  I love a little mat that goes fast!  I'll finish it today and post before I leave on my big adventure!

We go to the lake Friday ~ Saturday, we're going over to Put-in-Bay for their big Halloween celebration!  The old guy and I don't dress up (other than I wear my fancy witch hat that I bought at JoAnn Fabric years ago) but we love to watch all the crazy costumes that people put together!  We missed last week's celebration at Kelley's Island because we had Luke and Luci ~ so this weekend will be our time to 'howl'!!!!

We'll stay over Sunday night, so my friend, Maria, can pick me up there and then we'll head to Ligonier after we make one more stop for our friend, Miss Donna!!  This is Donna's group that she puts together for our class at Barbara Carroll's and we do have much fun!  The Laughlintown Antique Shop schedules their annual Christmas Open House on our arrival day  ~ thoughtful, don't you think?  Some of our gals (not me) are very good shoppers and they love to see us darken their door!  They put out a wonderful spread of appetizers and really do have two floors of  antique and folk art to share!  Last year, Maria and I bought wire baskets to display wool in! Then we'll have three days of hooking, eating and shopping!! Woo Hoo!!!

Have a good day ~ seems like our beautiful fall weather is going by the wayside ~ but we'll have a good day anyway!!  Thanks for stopping by ~

Have fun at P-i-B. You'll be the cutest witch there!
Your little rug is looking great. How quickly you hooked that one.
Have a great time in Ligonier. Have you picked your project yet?
Hugs :)

No, Lauren ~ I haven't picked a pattern yet! I have several here to choose from but also thinking about Magdalena Rooster Pair or a new one called Wags!! I'm taking along the Ned the horse pattern ~ I'm so undecided!!

Don't you just love it when you have one of those days when you can just "crank away" at a rug?
I'm hoping to do that tonight when I get together with some of my hooking buddies.....binding tonight!

Thanks, everybody! I just put up a new post about a little letter issue I'm having!

So glad to find someone else who hates lettering. In fact, I hooked a pattern by Bren and completely hooked over the lettering. And I still have another rug that I hooked the letters in a different color and have never gone back to take it out and hook the letters correctly.

Hope you have fun in Pennsylvania. Knowing me, you know my vote is for Ned, the horse, pattern. But you will have so much fun with whatever you hook.
