Happy Summer (even with the rain!)

I hope this post finds everyone enjoying their summer, rainy days and all! After a few days of absolutely gorgeous weather, we're in for another week of rain. Since my gardens have had time to recover and dry out, I think my tomatoes are enjoying the rain!

Some hooking has been happening here, but it was a tough go for a while. Every once in a while, like all artists, I think, I had some kind of block. I wanted to hook, almost needed to hook (lol) but just couldn't seem to figure out what I wanted to hook. Then, I headed over to Betty Dekat's blog, Primitivebettys and grabbed one of her freebie patterns. It was great fun to hook, and kind of put me into a fall hooking mood. I haven't bound any of my recent rugs yet, so just imagine away the white border! If you're looking for some great free patterns, head over to Betty's blog. She is one of the fiber artists in the Ebay group PRHG, and always delivers beautiful items!

After finishing that rug, I started on another small mat that will fit on a primitive stool, and a Christmas candle mat. None are bound yet, but I will save that for another day!
