A Spring Time Finish

I finished this cute little cupboard hanger ~ just ready for spring. We here in the Chicago area got a little snow and a lot of cold this week, so spring sure sounds good! I just put this punch needle piece on my selling blog. (I really need to try to keep some new items on that, and still keep some items on Ebay) Just click on the snowman box on the left side of my blog, and it will take to you the listing.

I have a pile of wool that's ready to be washed and felted. I'm not sure what all of it will be, but when the price is right, I snatched it up. I really like getting basic black, as it always goes nicely with punch needle backings.

Here's an interesting shot that I took of the frost on my kitchen window. It's pretty, but cold!

I've only done a little more on my first rug. (ok, I didn't want to complete it all in the first week, so I switched to another project)

I started another punch project. It's the same heart Valentine, but I'm going to make it with a black background for something different. I started it today during the Bears game. I usually don't watch football, but since it was Bears vs. Packers, it was more the the Super Bowl atmosphere.

Have a great week!

I just love the color in your heart rug. I can't wait to order some neutral wool to get some nice muted tones. Great work!

Your punched piece looks fantastic. You are really getting after the hooking and it looks great. Beautiful colors.
The frost on the window is sure pretty!

Your hooking looks wonderful! I hope you are happy with it. I just got a nice shipment of wool that I'm debating how to overdye. The frost on the window is so pretty - hasn't it been cold?

I feel like I haven't left a comment in a long time! I love that rug...does it turn out to be the size of an actual rug? The only rug hooking I know about was the kind we used to do when we were little...remember those? =0)

You can make the rugs in any size. Since this is my first hooked rug, it's about 8"x8". I"ll have to plan my next project, but will need a wool cutter first. I don't think I want to try cutting all the strips of wool with an Olfa cutter.
