Here's some items that I have listed on eBay right now.
My "Little Rugs" seem to be very popular so it's about time I did another one. This one may be my favorite so far. But that's prolly cause I LOVE FALL!!!! This one really looks old & at 6 1/2" X 9" you can do so much with it in regards to where you put it.

Now the JOL pins,I designed these so long ago I can't even remember when. But they continue to be popular,thank goodness. When you're not wearing one they're really neat to decorate with. Pin one to a swag,pin one on a doll, or how 'bout your purse.

Anyhoo if ya have a minute you can click on the eBay symbol & it will take you right to my auctions. THANK YOU!!!!!

OK,it's almost the 1st of the month AGAIN,just don't know how that happens so fast!!!! So,I've got to go figure out exactly what of the 236 items I have ALMOST finished,to finish & put in my Poppy Shoppe!!!!!!

These are items my good buddy Marte of Boggycreek has up for auction right now. Aren't they neat!!!!???!!! I love 'em!!!! PARTICULARLY that game board!!!!! It's so unique in itself & the way she mounted it makes it even more so. Can you imagine the hours she put into this. I'd be blind for sure or at the very least have to double up on my blood pressure pills!!!!
Now did you notice that her oh so cool needle punch box is the same Lori Brechlin design that I used to hook my rug (see pic below)

I know these pictures are small,so run over to ebay,type BLESTB in the search bar & you can get a better look. DEFINATELY worth your time!!!!
I'll post the link but they never seem to work. Haven't figured that one out yet LOL!!!*creek*primitives

These are the items that I have listed on ebay right now. If you'd like to go see just click on the little ebay thingy on the right & it will take you right to my auctions.

I finished the rug yesterday,finally. I started it last saturday night. It's a pattern from my friend Lori Brechlin in her Wytches Stytches booklet. The pattern is one of Lori's drawings & the size is more suited to needle punch,BUT I wanted to hook it. So I set the pattern in front of me to look at while I drew it freehand to a larger size. I sure hope I've done her pattern justice,cause she's such a great artist, & I'm NOT.

Ya know there's a great deal of prep work before you hook a rug. Usually the 1st thing you do is inlarge the pattern if it's in a booklet. That more often that not takes about 50 sheets of paper on your printer to maybe get the size you want. Of course for me MOST of that paper goes in the scrap pile designated for all the notes & picture #'s I use,which usually get lost. Anyhoo,THEN you have to piece these papers together right & tape em together. If that part turns out OK you then proceed to the next step,which is tracing it onto what we hookers call red dot. Red dot is very thin with tiny red dots marked every inch vertically & horizontally.
OK that being done,you need a nice new juicy permanent marking pen. It HAS to be juicy cause you're gonna lay the red dot on your backing fabric & trace the design so it bleeds through to the backing so you can see the pattern to hook.

Then ya gotta pick out your wool,then ya gotta cut it. THEN 2 days later you can start hooking LOL!!!!!!!!!

Well I hope you enjoy looking at my work.
That's all for now!!!!! LATER!!!!

Really raining here in Ohio. Sad for the Country Living Show going on in Columbus. BUT much sadder for people in Texas. God Bless Them.

I'll be anxious to hear all about the Country Living show from my buddy Lori Brechlin. She's here from Virginia to go to it. Hoped we could have gotten together. John, (The Husband) said he'd drive me, but just too far for him to make 4 trips to take me & pick me up. But he was very willing!!!! Hmmmm now that I think about it,maybe he was gonna forget the pickin' up part!!!!!!
Well almost lunch & naptime for me so LATER My Friends!!!!! I'm up outta here!!!
