Didn't finish by my "mental date"

I had said I wanted to finish my antique rug by the weekend. Well that didn't happen. Last Wed. afternoon I got a Killer migraine which lasted through Thurs. night. Well, that really messed up my mental finish date. I have to do that in order to get anything finished. Soooo I'm shooting for this weekend to have the hooking finished. The borders have stripes and it will be getting a bit technical to figure out. My poor little brain!



Here's my progress




The black animal at the bottom will hopefully be a horse after I finish the hooking around him. My hubby thought it was a dog. sigh.....



It's been so hot here I didn't even go outside over the weekend. Watched alot of movies and took some naps! It's supposed to be 98 today. Again too hot to do much of anything outside. I do have to go to the fairgrounds to pick up my rugs. Can't wait to get them hung back up.


I am going to start a painting project too. My sisters birthday is the 29th and I'm going to paint a Santa on an old wooden ironing board. I'll show you my progress on that too. I will try to get it primed today. That is why I have started my "mental finish date".

Used to be I would be putting on the varnish when I needed to be wrapping the gift. Too much stress!!!


Have a great Monday!

Hey Sheri...WOW...you've really gotten so much done, even if you didn't finish when you wanted. I am most impressed by this piece...and I knew it was a horse! So there!

Hi Jacque, I am proud of myself for getting so much done. As for the horse I think his legs are too short. When I do the border I'll make them a little longer. The border keeps getting bigger and bigger. That's ok when you draw your own pattern as long as I don't run out of linen!
