ROOSTER RUG PROGRESS ~ ~ ~
This hooking progress is the result of Days 10 & 11 ~ the hit-and-miss background takes me a bit more time because I just can't be that random in picking out the colors!! I try ~ but I can't ~ I have to figure out what neutral will look best next another neutral. But it's coming long ~ I meant to take a photo of the background wools ~ I'll do that next time!! Since I hook pretty high, this rug has a nice cushy feel to it under my tootsies!!
We had a big weekend starting on Thursday with Luke's birthday dinner at a local Japanese restaurant! These kids have great taste when it comes to picking out where to go and grandma and grandpa are happy to go along! We sat at hibachi tables and watched this fellow work his magic with his chip-chop tools and a little cosmopolitan for me ~ it made for a very fun evening!
I'll throw in a couple of garden pictures ~ this is hellebore or Lenten roses ~ they're doing great this year. They're self seeding and I'm moving them around to other parts of the yard ~ lots of little baby hellebores are coming up so there will be even more next year!
