{ in progress }

here's what I've been working on:

it's a rug that will be my 'sign' that will hang when I'm vending at shows...

I hooked up our farmhouse, then added a black walnut tree
and the words 'notforgotten farm'
and hooked a 'wavy' ground...the background will be blacks
(antique black-greens, brown-blacks, etc.)

it measures approx. 26" x 26" and I will mount it on an old breadboard that I have...
i think it will look pretty cool...

~ Also ~
I was commissioned to hook this chairpad for Connie:

I hooked a brown background with cream 'slip' lettering...
i have to bind it yet...
It is approx. 12" round...
I LOVE the colors...
...they're very early looking
I have to go to the post office today, so will try to get this finished & sent out,
along with gifts heading up to CT & down to TN....
Hoping your day is filled with warm cookies & coco, some furry friends and wool!
Blessed be~
