BIG RUG ~ ~ ~

 Just a quick post to let you know I'M BACK!!!! We got home late last Thursday night from our 16 day Florida adventure!  I was a slug all weekend ~ re-entry was tough for me!  Today, I hooked this leaf ~ the first hooking since December! 

The veins of this rug don't really show up well ~ I told myself that I'm into subtlety right now!  Maybe later it will get changed ~ maybe not!
This is the center of the rug ~ that's what I hooked late one night after wrapping presents before Christmas  ~ just wanted something simple ~ no mushing ~ no blending of wools ~ just blocks of color.  I'll post as I hook but there are other rugs to finish.  I just wanted you all to know we are alive and well ~ and getting back in the swing of things!

The vacation pix will get posted soon ~ for those of you on Facebook, you saw all too many, I'm sure!  I posted every day from every place we were ~ sharing ~ I was into sharing! 

Hope you have had a good January/February ~ it's been a mild winter for sure ~ Spring is on it's way,  friends!!!

Alice I love that green color you first did in December. Matter of fact my hooking girlfriend does too and I (we) refer to it as the beautiful ugly green. Was almost out and tried to overdye some more but it didn't come out quite like the other but will do.

Oh, out of curiosity, do you have the Google Chrome? I have tried to post something new on my blog and it says my browser is no longer supported by Blogger. What's that all about?

Hi alice, Welcome back...I'm glad that you are back from Florida and that you are hooking again. I love your greens and I never seem to have enough or I never have the right shade.

I'm looking forward to seeing some of your vacation pictures.

What do you think of these annoying two word verification. It's enough to drive any blogger insane. Have a great week. JB

Everything you do is so perfect...I only wish I could do as good.
May I ask what fabric you work on...I just can't seem to get nice corners/circles/curves....
Glad your trip was fun and I so understand the getting back into the daily routine.

You went to FL and you didn't stay for the Sarasota Hook-in? Are you sick? OMGosh!!!!
Saundra, I have Google Chrome. I don't know that it gets me anything. Half the time, I can't read those darn wiggly letters and I sure ain't a robot!!!!! GRRRRR
Welcome Home Alice!!!!! I never dreamed you'd be home yet.

Love the shape of the leaves -- the color too. Glad you had a good time in Florida.

Gorgeous! I LOVE the subtle colors, and am getting read to hook something a little quieter than my usual projects. Thanks for repinning my pillow Alice! You're a doll!
