GAGETOWN HOOKERS-DYED AND SPUN WOOL FOR THE RUG

28 01 2013

Gagetown Hookers

After much searching I did find a gallery in Canada that had one of the Gagetown Hookers rugs for sale.  I sent her an e-mail to see if I can post the picture.  The rug is their family farm and is priced at around $300. 

I have found that some of the best hooked rugs have come from Canada.  Scenes of people lives.  I do love them.  More and more are surfacing now that rug hooking has a resurgence.

The temps are inching up, but it’s still bone-chilling as far as I am concerned.  Looking forward to the 30’s.

FLORIDA

It looks like my Mom’s house in Florida has sold again and this deal may go through.  It has been a long ordeal and it will be nice not to worry about that.  

HOOKED RUG

Yesterday I spun a lot of odds and ends and dyed some yarn to finish the rug.   I will be glad when its done as I am ready to work on something else.   The Elliott yarn in the pot looks like candy.  It came out a nice purple and I will use that for my initials and the date.

SQUIRREL PLAYING

P1020199

With bone chilling temps a squirrel still has to eat and play.  When I lived in Holyoke there were squirrels everywhere.  Here in Colrain there are very few.  We have a small family of them that live in the woods behind the house.  They have an  elaborate nest in one of the trees.  It was difficult taking this picture as when I opened the door the screen door frosted and froze up.  Warmer weather is on its way.

Hope you have a wonderful day and many thanks for reading my blog.    Carole
