I Also Hook Rugs

So I finally hemmed down the edges on a small mat I made last summer. It's been hanging out in my bedroom closet since then, just waiting to be finished. I originally made it to go over the doorway in the living room to the hall and here it is finally hemmed and hung:


In retrospect, I wish I had used a solid black for the roof on the house, I think it gets lost a little in the hill behind it. I really think I caught the feel of movement in the water though. All in all a nice little mat and it fits perfectly above the doorway.
I also finished hooking this hit or miss mat. It still needs the edges bound, but the hooking is finished. This is another one I started sometime ago and just finally got around to finishing. I want to buy some rubber rug backing and put this in front of my kitchen sink. It will finish up at about 18x24 inches, so a nice sized kitchen mat.


I've also been embroidering over the last few weeks since the last time I posted for finish it up Friday. I have 2 pieces of Palestinian cross stitch done. One is already sewn into an unfinished bag, I need to get something for handles next time I'm in JoAnn. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the other piece yet. Maybe a pocket on a skirt or top, or maybe I'll just slip it into a small frame and hang it.



 

A friend of mine was having a garage sale and she gave me some yarn. Most of it I passed on to my daughter, but I kept some 100%  wool yarn, and some brown acrylic. The acrylic became these fingerless mitts:


There's enough of this acrylic left to make a pair of mittens, too.
Last of all we had a gorgeous day yesterday, sunny and warm, with very low humidity. I took advantage of it to dye these two rovings. Each are 4 oz., and are a Corrie crossbred I  got on Paradise fibers. Due to not watching what I was doing, the red one is actually a dyeing experience that went horribly wrong but still resulted in a very pretty roving. 



Hopefully in the next week I can get a small sampler I'm working on finished, as well as a cabled hat I started yesterday and finish spinning some green yarn I'm almost finished with. I'm hooking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and Creative Goodness Linky Party. Happy Friday!

Humility, honesty and diligence is the ferry life from shore to shore three pieces of magic weapon.
Don't know how to tolerance will not get the respect of others, excessive indulgence will lose their self-esteem.
Not to be beaten by others is the only way to know the truth is earlier than others.
If life gives you a lemon, do not complain, should think, do need it is lemon juice.
