It really was a make-do kind of project as I used wool that I already had in stash from my wool kitty projects and penny rugs. I learned a few things (especially what not to do) and made another one very similar to it and just a tad bigger for my mom's birthday.
Here it is hanging on my Americana wall. I am thinking of making another one for the local American Legion's (I'm an auxillary member) auction this fall. We use the money raised to send community teens to summer camp.
I have another hooked rug project I'm currently working on -- wanted to get it done this spring but the gardening took over! It will be a nice thing to work on when hubby and I go on vacation up north in a few days!
As far as my cats go, they LOVE playing with the wool strips whenever I'm not looking. Here are Louie and Oscar looking very innocent and lazy basking in the breeze on the screened in porch. What a life ... they are always on vacation! Well, I wish you all a lovely weekend full of fun times and quality stitching.
