I know I have been missing for nearly a month and for that I apologize and shall try to do better.
I think I mentioned that I had the flu or something similar in March. I don't get sick often, but when I do, it's a doozy and takes a very long time to get my strength back. The weather is finally beginning to improve, and there is so much outdoor work to do, cleaning out the gardens of winter debris. It's going to be harder to find as much time for stitching and hooking projects.
I did finish a small hooked rug a while back, it is a design from Maria's http://www.starrugcompany.com/ that I purchased last fall from her when taking a class here in Tipp City.
I have been working on The Manifesto for exactly a month now, and here is my progress (or lack there of). I am filling in the background as I go. It should be spectacular when finished, but that will take a very long time!
I also recently purchased a kit from Maria of Star Rug Company. I usually don't do kits, but this time I wanted an exact reproduction of the antique rug. Here is the kit, the beautiful wools (25 of them), her very detailed instructions, and my progress last night. I plan to lay it on top of a footstool in the family room , the colors should be perfect! I taped a small piece of each wool with the number onto a piece of cardboard so that I can keep everything straight.
I'll end with a few kitten photos, of course.
Till next time, which I promise won't be as long!
