Blog Hop Winners...

...and a HUGE THANKS for everyone who stopped for a visit and to those who left comments!

It is always nice to hear from followers...and so great to meet so many NEW wool lovers.
I'm totally humbled by your kind words...
and hope you will visit often.

Today...I'm nearing the end of the rug I need to have ready for a deadline this week.
Then it is on to getting ready for the Autumn Valley Hook-in in Stillwater, MN next Saturday...

I promise once things settle down here...wink...I will post more about my process in rug hooking!
I was surprised to read all the comments of those who aren't familiar with it...or are just starting their rug hooking journey.

Now...for what you all have been waiting for...
Drum Roll...
Congratulations to
Patti at Winding Vine Wanderings
and Kathy in Ozarks at Kathyinozarks Pages
I've sent you both private emails and once I receive your mailing addresses your wooly bundle will be on the way!

Have a great day ~ L

September 25th...My Day...Crazy About WOOL

Good day and a Wooly Welcome
to my stop on the Crazy About Wool blog hop
hosted by Denise of Pieced Brain

If you are a new visitor to The Wooly Red Rug…
I hope you will spend some time poking around here on the blog
to learn more about my wool work…studio and website

Before we jump into the wooly craziness…

I want to wish my Mom a Happy 83rd Birthday!!!
She taught me the love of handwork…
…Mommie, I love you more than words can say!

When Denise asked me to be part of the blog hop I wasn’t sure what I was getting into…
But…Crazy About Wool pretty much describes the typical day in my studio!

On the “to-do” list this week is to kit up the second half of of the 2013 Rug Project…Pines to Prairie…
This is Part One…

participants have been working on this since March…
the Part Two kits will go out in the mail in early October
This is the finished 2013 rug…

I’m also finishing up on a rug for an article in an upcoming 2014 issue of
Rug Hooking Magazine

So…now on to a wooly treat for you…
Like many of you Autumn is my favorite time of year…

Happy September...

A wee bit late...but worth the wait...after a few tech glitches finally got my page updated...
A welcome turn in the weather...finally a break in the heat and humidity! So nice to feel the breeze thru the windows!
I really don't know where the summer has gone and am sure most of you feel the same.
Enjoy your weekend ~L
