I keep reading on blogs & facebook that people want spring to hurry up and get here!!!!

Well I'm kinda different, I've never wanted to hurry the seasons. I just like to take each one for what thy offer. Like last nite when I was looking out at the snowstorm,I said, God,WOW You a truly The Greatest Artist!!! It was BEAUTIFUL out!!!! I've always said that snow is one of the most beautiful things. Of course there's a lot of people who'd like to bitch slap me when I say that LOL!!!! But at night it just makes everything glow and it's so pure and white and when it coats the branches of the trees,it's beautiful art done by God.

OK I'll stop lol!!!! Just one more thing. We are REALLY buried with snow here in Ohio!!!!

So anyhoo since everybody seems to be so anxious for Spring,I decided to design a tulip rug. Red tulips of course,cause red's my favorite color!!!
I've often said that when I design a rug or needle punch,I just put the backing on the frame and draw. Well I did this one a little differently. I put the backing on the frame, but I had all kinds of ideas running through my head. So this is how this rug began... I took a beautiful brown plaid wool and just started hooking a rectangle with TOO MANY ideas of what was going into that rectangle. I'm supposed to take a nap in the afternoon. When I tell Meshe that it's nap time she runs to the couch!!! So there we are,Meshe & me wrapped in our respective blankies,Meshe cuddled up to my neck,sound asleep,but not me. I'm thinking of what I'm going to hook into that rectangle. SO many ideas!!! THEN I had my A HA moment!!! TULIPS IN A POT!!! OK had to get up and get started!!

SOOOO Here It Is!!!
I love antique Ironstone,have a few pieces and have had to sell a few pieces. Ya know how the really old ironstone has that crazed grey or brownish look??? Well that's what I was going for with the pot. I hope you think that I came close. Had to use the wool that I had.

The rug is approx. 8 1/2" X 14". GREAT to hang on a cupboard door!!!  $110.00 + $3.50 Shipping

I tried to bring a touch of Spring to everyone Hope you like it!!!

Sherry ...... OUT (but not in the snow lol)

This is the rug that's on my frame now.
