Give it a rest

I haven't posted a good old fashioned rant for a long time and quite frankly one is brewing.  But not tonight.  I'm too tired from my quiet weekend :). 

While I did have a restful weekend, what I am giving a rest to is my hook.  Yes, another project hooked AND bound and listed on etsy.  Here is my version of the Primitive Spirit pattern - Hideaway House

All completed without cutting one single wool worm.  (So how is it I still have a mountain of worms?).  Oh well, I'm making progress.   This was a fun pattern and someday I'd like to hook it again, next time with an actual color plan. 

I don't think I will start another project for a few days.  Deanne's pattern of the month will be available mid week, so I'm anxious to see what she has up her sleeve this month. 

Although the tulips are starting to pop up, it is far from spring-like here.  A grey and rainy day here which isn't helping my enthusiasm to get out and about.  It's definitely been an April Showers kind of month.  I hope it does bring May Flowers! 

I hope you all had a great weekend.


  1. I love your piece I should try to hook some small pieces to use up my worms. We are cold and rainy all week I haven't even touched my gardens so I have seen some tulip leaves but no flowers yet.
    have a great week

  2. Oh, that was FAST!!! Looks great!
    It was sunny here, but C-O-L-D!!! I worked a outside dog event for 2 hours and it took me about 4 more to warm up. God this sucks :(
    Hope your week starts off well.
    Hugs :)

  3. Your little mat is wonderful... very happy colors! And bound too... I'm so proud of you Kim!! Hope you have success now on Etsy!
    Can't wait to see the project Deanne offers... something exciting I'm sure!
    Have a good week and feel free to rant any time! I love your rantings!!

  4. Kim, you did that fast! Wow I am impressed

  5. I am concerned that you have a storm brewing!!

  6. OMG!!! It's done already! And it's beautiful!!!
    The problem with worms is when you put them in a bag or a basket together, THEY MATE! And make more worms! The pesky little things!
    Gotta have them neutered...

  7. Wow you did that one fast and very pretty too. Have a restful week.

  8. This is such a cheery piece! Looking forward to seeing the next Deanne pattern...

  9. You have been busy! I have noticed new rugs on your shop. Such nice work, Kim! Take a rest. xo

  10. The little house is cute.. love the colors Kim!

  11. Oh my gosh Kim, you are a hooking machine and your little rug looks great and good for you for deworming your stash.
    I saw another version of this pattern posted oh Rug Hooking Daily on Sunday At first I thought it was yours... not the same colors.

    Yeah, it's about time for another good rant.

  12. Ok this probably sounds horrible, but I"m looking forward to the rant! I do enjoy your rants, lol! Is this one about the utilities again? ;)

  13. Just stopping to check out your latest treasure. This one tells a story. Love it!
