...Down a dirt road, past woods and fields sits a humble little farmhouse wearing chippy white paint and a rusty tin roof ~
It's here you'll find me pulling thread and wool through linen and chasing after my kittens…
I collect old & odd things ~ I throw my head back and cackle when I laugh and I see the past through the eye of a needle.
~ I love my life and those I share it with.

A Million Loops ~

Punching & Hooking
~ millions of loops being made from thread & wool…

working on finished goods for the upcoming From OUr Hands Show
on November 13th & 14th ~

here are a few punches-in-progress using my favorite Valdani pearl cotton colors:

...the subtle color ways and different variations of the same hue make me happy
along with that nubbly texture!

I'm loving the way this tree of life is coming along…
twisted & gnarled like the old trees here in our woods ~

and in-between those loops, I've been working on these loops 
on my challenge rug for this:

...a little more progress on the house

my rug is no where near as big as some of the other girls' rugs ~ 
~ but that's ok, since I'm only hooking along for fun ~

and it IS fun seeing everyones interpretations of the same motifs…
each participant has come up with their own unique design & color planning.

a nice way to come together is by holding a friendly challenge like this.
it helps folks who are new to hooking/designing get out of their comfort zone a bit
and I think our more 'experienced' hookers are enjoying it as well :)
{and yes, I mean RUG hookers!}

well it seems like the rain has passed finally ~
the winds are still here though, and blow sharply through our farmyard like a knife at times…

I thought I would take a few snaps of the sun,
 in case it decided to vacation again and we forget what it looks like!

All Kinds of 'STUFF' ~

A Friendly reminder that we are CLOSED again today ~
the weather has been AWFUL and I would rather you didn't drive out in it!
Stay Safe my Friends!

THIS awful:

the high winds & driving rains toppled over our glass table on the patio ~ 
smashing it to bits & scaring all of our farm friends…
looks like ice, doesn't it? thank the stars for safety glass…

Today marks the beginning of the Out of Hand Rug Hookers Group {Facebook}
Hook A Long & Rug Challenge ~

I've got my motifs all drawn onto my linen, and am just hooking along for fun with everyone else…
PLEASE remember that the Challenge Group is now CLOSED 
and we are not accepting new participants at this time ~ 
{We are always accepting new members for our 'mother' group, though}
… but before you throw tomatoes at me for not getting in in time, 
please know we will have another Hook A Long & Challenge 
soon after the 1st of the New Year….

here's my progress…

wools chosen and cut into strips ~
love this basket I've had for at least 100 years…

it's an old sturdy potato-basket ~ 
… someone long-ago carved the initials 'W I L' into the oak handle

and here's a finished wooly-friend ~ a little red squirrel!
the acorns were hooked using a beautiful boucle wool that was hand dyed by Mary Henck
{Mary's Wool Garden} isn't it beautiful?

 Today also is a celebration for Peter & I ~
27 years ago we said 'I Do'…
my stars we look like we're 12 yrs old don't we? 
{well, except that  Peter has a moustache!}

Happy Anniversary Peter  ~ 
We've been through so much together and it's been one crazy ride!
I have always been able to count on you to be right there with me through everything.
I'm lucky to have you as a husband & partner, and Hannah is blessed to call you Dad.
Thank you for loving us as fiercely as you do.
