can you believe I actually HOOKED something??


been forever.


sometimes the urge to pull fat wool strips through soft-as-butter linen
overcomes me and i

Just. Have. To.

here you have it ~
a Scared Jack Chairpad.

available HERE NOW.
and ya know? I may just need to
get a few more hooked things out of my system!!

along with hooking, (and making some dolls)
we are actually in the throes (once again) of haying the fields...
this means, 2 days worth of sneezing, itching, scratchy throats, eyes & skin ~
sore muscles, and help from dear friends...
SO ~
with that said,
I will now go bring the water jug out to Peter,
who is out there rowing the hay for this afternoon's bailing...
hoping you all have a wonderful day!!!

Blessings from the Farm...


from me to thee......... said...

oh my Lori, that is an awesome piece...I read you hand cut the wool, I think that is what gives the strips such a primitive, early look, love that.... I haven't hooked in a while, need to get back to it.

It seems I always have that urge to pull wool thru' fabric. I'm hooking like crazy for your show and the Sorghum Festival. Your pumpkin is adorable!!
If you take a picture of your haying operation, I just might hook it!
Don't work TOO hard!
