A Labor of Love

Happy Labor Day to everyone. Another gorgeous day with that fresh Fall feel in the air. I'm starting to think of boots and sweaters :)

I'll be catching up with your long weekend activities soon but first I want to show you how I spent much of my day. I really wanted to finish hooking Sassy Sunflower. I hooked all afternoon, stopping only to cut more wool.



I am still looking for the right wool for the pillow backing. I am pleased with the way it turned out so far.

Back to the grind tomorrow :(

  1. I want your cooler weather. It's 100 here. I thought maybe if I brought out the fall decorations it would help. Sad to say it didn't.

  3. It looks so pretty. I like the colors you chose. It is very nice. You are such a good (rug) hooker. I love how your loops are all even and perfect. This was fun thinking you were working on the same thing. It is almost like being in the same room sort of. :) R. got a new app and I had him put your weather in it. I could see how nice it was at your house today. I wish I was there it is back to 100 again. :) Have a much nicer Tuesday this week than last week.

  4. Your Sassy rug looks so nice and I love your colors and background. It will make a fine pillow. I think that you're hooking as fast as Deanne. It kind of looks like a zentangle pattern.

    Hugs, JB

  8. Your pillow will be so pretty. It was 90 degrees here today, no fall temps yet.

  10. You always choose such beautiful colors to go together. It's turning out wonderfully! So cheerful. I'm dreaming of boots and sweaters too and we're no where near our cool temps. Can I come live with you? ;)

  11. Every time I visit I fall more and more in love with your hooking, how did you get started? I have wanted to learn a craft (sewing isn't my thing) but your last projects and the cheery sunflowers have drawn me in so inspiring Kim an so pretty I love your color choices :]

  12. Kim,
    What a wonderful finish on your Sassy Sunflower! You are making me want to hook another one too! I like the size of this rug too as you can finish it almost in a couple of sittings! Fun!!
    Enjoy the rest of this short week..... I hear we are getting some cooler weather mid week here. After the 90 degress we had yesterday I am MORE than ready!!
    Hugs!

  16. OOOO La La....Lovin' the earthy coolness of your color palette on this one Missy Kim. Sunflowers can be so "hot" and in your face - Though I love them for that, I also like that calmer, cooler, melancholy side when they, too, say farewell to summer. Looks like you're very much in tune with the seasons my gal pal.

    Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
