In like a lion

Well, yesturday morning March roared in like a lion. So I'm hoping that the old adage holds true and it goes out like a lamb! I woke at 6:30am to the sound of freezing ice pellets driving into the side of the house. Brrrrrr! But fortunately it cleared up some by lunch time.

It has been a busy week so far. In fact, when I woke up this morning I was positive it was Thursday. After dressing and going downstairs for coffee and the newspaper, I was seriously ticked off to see the date on the paper said TUESDAY! How could that be?????? I guess it just goes to show you what a busy day Monday was! lol
However, I have been on a roll with my hooking. I finished hooking the birdhouse rug last night and as soon as I finish this post I will begin binding up the backing. I love how it turned out. AND I didn't buy any new wool! Woohoo - a first for me. All of these colors were custom dyed by Momz Wool . My Olympic inspired gold background is Strong Yellow Gold, the leaves are Aquarius and the roof/post wood and red berries came from a beautiful transitional dye that Corinne was experimenting with. And the stems on the leaves are from gorgeous yarn I purchased from Jen at Fish Eye Rugs last fall. Love it.......
Well, gotta run and get this rug bound. The next project is calling me ---a fun beach inspired rug.


  1. Just so you know Kim, tomorrow is Wednesday. :)) That is such a darling rug......are you going to hang it? XXOO Cathy G

  2. The birdhouse rug is so sweet. I love that you made it without buying wool. Doesn't it feel great to use up stash,(so you can buy more).
    Looking forward to seeing your next project.

  3. Gorgeous little rug ~ I try to use out of my stash and not into the wool I have for sale ~ does it always work ~ no!! Very disciplined, you are!

  4. I love the Aquarius, and as I didn't cut/hook any myself I can finally get to see the color in production.

    I was surpised that Aquarius was in those leaves, nice work. And those dirty colors did come in handy. ;-)
