THE CAT AND PUMPKIN RUG – GETTING READY FOR THE STORM – NICE BIRTHDAY

28 10 2012

HELLO

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I worked on the Cat and Pumpkin rug the whole time I was at the New York SHeep and Wool Festival.  I had many questions about technique and wool.  Some people showed me pictures of their rugs.  It was fun.  So here is where I am at with the rug.  I like the lighter pumpkin much better so I plan to pull the darker one out and replace it with the lighter color.  And the lighter color was my Uncle Rogers army blanket so the rug will have more meaning to me and my family.

 

HURRICANE SANDY

I spent a good part of the day getting stuff put away, lawn chairs and the like.    I had not even started the fall clean up with the Florida trip and the show.  So it was all done in two days.  My son came over tonight and fixed the two windows in the barn and helped me get all the animals in the barn till the storm is over.  We had opened the two windows for cross ventilation.  The sheep and llama have been sleeping outside since spring.  They are all safely in the barn for at least tonight and tomorrow.  We will see what the storm brings.

AN IDEA FOR ANOTHER RUG

My friend Mary Jane of Maryjanesrugs blog fame had a picture of a whimsical  antique quilt on her blog today.  It was delightful with lots of embroidery, bees, hens trees etc.  I am thinking of drawing out some of these whimsical animals and plants and put them into a rug.  When I am done I will put the pattern on the blog.

BIRTHDAY

The day was full of surprises.  Cindy and the boys called the first thing this morning , Betty and Jason came up with cupcakes and flowers and other assorted Atkins goodies and my son came over tonight.  Today I either heard from or saw all of my children that really makes it a special day.

I hope that all of you that are in harm’s way stay safe, many thanks for reading my blog.
