Carrot Rug

As you can see it’s almost done.  It was really a fun rug to hook and easily could have been done with yarn.     I plan to finish hooking it tonight and hem it and sew the backing on tomorrow.  

P1020534 I found a piece of brown plaid wool, decided to use some of it for a backing,  I still had some of the green dye left and I think it will do.


Today I took Lil and Lauren to the doctors, Its time for lil’s 4 month check up and assorted shots.  The doctor said that Lauren could start her on a small amount of cereal but even though the rice cereal would be best for her to start on studies have shown high traces of arsenic in it so use oatmeal or barley instead.  It seems that the rice is now grown on land that cotton was grown on and the rice pulls up the arsenic from the soil.  All the things that were done in the past are coming home to roost!


Camp Wool is less than a month away.  The shop has moved into the town of Kennebunk itself and I am anxious to see it.    Rug hooking is very popular now and  there is usually a waiting list for the 2 day retreat.  A bunch of us usually stay at The Bonnie Doon which is a quaint motel in Ogunquit.  I am going up on Thursday and on Friday I will me my childhood friend, Francine for lunch.  We will talk the day away. reminisce about our wonderful childhood.  I can’t wait.  Now I will have to get working on the Nubble Light Rug and finish it.  If you are ever in Kennebunk stop in at Camp Wool she has all sorts of woolen items and antiques.

Many thanks for reading my blog and I hope you have a wonderful day.   Carole
