Hooked Owl

 I hooked this owl from the "Primitive Hooked Rug Owls" pattern by Cathy Meyer.  It is a great pattern which also has a pattern for a baby owl (not hooked yet).  Right now, the mommy owl is just sitting on her nest waiting for her baby to hatch. She may be waiting a while.

This has nothing to do with rug hooking, but I made this sea shell "B" with the shells that I found on Cape San Blas beach this summer.  It brings back fond memories of our trip.  Did I mention that I made it . . . right by myself?  My husband laughed when I started it.  He said it would not look like a "B" when it was finished.  So there!

Karla Gerard Rug Finished . . .

I finished my new rug a few weeks ago and it is now in my laundry room.  Doing the laundry is not so gloomy any more.  This design of Karla's is called 'Blooming Farm".  It is fun and cheerful and so much fun to hook.  I made it large, 30x52, and it brightens up the place a lot.  The next rug of Karla's that I would like to do is called 'Moonlight Sailboats'.  To see designs by Karla Gerard, go to her blog here, or on ebay go here.  They are so wonderfully affordable and you can make them any size you like!
Happy Hooking!
