It is finished and the scoop on PHM!!!

It is a dreary rainy day here in PA today so I took the time to finish up the hooked piece I was working on! Loved this design as soon as I saw it in the wool shop! The pattern is from Primitive Rug Designs by Anne Nichols! It is hooked on linen which was a first for me and I really did like it! Kathy from Rugs of Mine in Time helped me with picking out the wool colors and I'm real happy with the look! Thanks Kathy! I'm going to hang this in my bathroom between two of my wool appliqued pictures after my husband makes some kind of wood piece to hang it from or on. The space I want to hang it in requires a little bit more coverage so I'm thinking a wood backing or hanger will do the trick!I also want to remind you about the contest we are having on the Primitive Handmades Mercantile site! Each page has a lime green letter hidden among the descriptions of the offerings and all you need to do is collect all 20 and unscramble the phrase! Here are some of the offerings this month that are still available! In "Liberty Handmade Primitives" you will find Buster the Cat! So cute!Looks like Jennifer still has this beautiful cross stitched "Wool" pillow remaining!
Kathy's needle punched eggs are the sweetest!Joanne has some hooked eggs! Check them out!This is just a sampling of the wonderful handmades so be sure to stop by and check every page!!!

Started a new hooked piece!

Where did this week go?!?!?! So much happening here I can't seem to get caught up! I had to take a day off from orders yesterday so I went to the Grant Street Wool Shop! Started a new hooked piece using linen. Love this pattern by Anne Nichols called 1808. Kathy at Rugs of Mine in Timehelped me pick out the perfect colors of wool! She is such a big help!!! Now today it is sitting here calling my name but I must finish up some dolls for my patient customers!
Check out this sweet little magnet I purchased there too! Linda the owner and one of the other hookers and I can't remember her name.... hopefully Kathy can pass that along to us.....made these for an upcoming show! They hold the scissors on your work area!!! It took me a whole second to decide I needed one of these! Love it!
Reminder!!!! One more week before the next update at Primitive Handmades Mercantile If you see something in one of the shops that is still available you better get it now because it all will be changing next Friday!
Until next time! Have a great day!
