~ A little Loop-Pulling ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!

what a pleasure it has been to take my rug hooking outside on the patio again :) 
the slightest hint of Autumn is now sighing on the breeze…

making me want to play in my wools once again!

I guess those of us that love wool have so much in common ~
from the past to the present it seems…

those little loops that draw me in
allow me to hook what is around me and in my imagination ~

I've added a Rug Hooker's POLL
 to the top of my sidebar over there on the right of this page ----->

Always interested in knowing your preferences :)

Plans are underway for another Rug Hooking Class here at the farm ~ 
… thinking of perhaps a Winter-themed class project this time
maybe a mitten to hold candy canes or holly berries?
stay tuned!

 ~ Blessings from the Farm ~

What cut did you use on your sunflower? It is absolutely beautiful.

Lori from Notforgotten Farm said...

REPLY: I used a multitude of sizes for this sunflower, from a cutter blade 6 {darkest center} to a handcut 10 {outer portion} and pulled my loops higher as I worked out from the center :) the green leaves are proddy and/or hand stitched on. This is a purse I hooked and is available as a paper pattern :)

I love the Sunflower!!! I sense Autumn in the softening light…not so harsh. Lovely to see what you're up to, Lori!

Holly said...

I always feel cozy when I visit your site. I have been inspired to cross stich again which I haven't done since I was 20.

One day maybe I will give this a try. Your work is always inspiring and beautiful

Love your sunflowers, Lori!! I think its cool that you hook with all widths...I'm so programmed to hook with one width...ugh! Sure wish I lived closer to take a class an of course, to shop!!

Wonderful to see you enjoying some hooking out on your patio Lori! Our weather was much the same today & a welcome respite from the extreme heat we've had! Love seeing the progress on your BEE WITCHED rug... FUN colors & love the "quillies" & glass eyes! And your ☼Sunflower☼ purse is so prim & sweet! ♥

Hope you get some concrete news later this week. btw -- rec'd my PPNC kit yesterday & already started on it today while waiting on my hubby's routine (colonoscopy) exam ...poor him, but happy me!! He got the "all clear" from the doc ...yippy! Have a great week, thinking of you! xoxo
