Starting to feel like the little boy who cried wolf...

God has a way of reminding you what matters sometimes. Family & Health are far more important than anything we do so I hope each of you finds yourselves grateful for each today.

The first two rugs we don't have a photo of because there was a tragic death in the family of a very young child she had to leave right away for her great nieces funeral.

Another rug is already at another hookers home and no picture :-(

A third rug is on it's way to me so I will snap a picture before I start hooking on it to post, a fourth rug should be following soon.

UFO Progress Pictures

We are slowly getting these rugs around the country & en route back to their homes. Life has happened to some of the girls hooking and delayed their progress a little. We all completely understand unexpected illness' and other tragedies occur to each of us so we are being patient while awaiting our next rug to arrive in the mail!

A little sweetness

Just wanted to share my favorite little enhancement that makes things a little sweeter.

Honey Butter

Take 1 stick of salted butter & let warm to room temperature (remember when Grandma left her butter out all the time?)
Toss the stick in your mixing bowl and add 1 tbsp of your favorite honey & blend until smooth.
Now just transfer into a pretty little dish & chill until you want to add a little sweetness to your day!

One Completed Rug Arrives Home

After a trip to & fro across the United States Mimi's Rug arrived home!

She likes it I guess, which is good because a few of us were willing to adopt it for life!

Mimi said....

Ladies, how do I thank each of you? I received my finished rug today from Kelley, and well, to tell you the truth, it brought tears to my eyes! This rug is so much more beautiful than I could have ever made it. My husband couldn't believe how wonderful it looks!!

I think I speak for all of us when I say it was a pleasure Mimi!

I just shipped off two rugs to Cheryl In Texas

This last week I held onto two rugs awaiting Hurricane Ike's final destination they have been picked up this morning and are in route to Texas.

It is really exciting to contribute a little time & hooking to these rugs.
While I will not be one of the lucky gals to receive their rug finished I have enjoyed co-ordinating this UFO Round Robin.
I truly believe a little of us is incorporated into everything we create, which is why I treasure things that are old & handmade.

I hope to find my camera cable so I can upload the pictures & maybe even update this blog sometime soon!

Credit where Credit is Due

I have had this quote on my blackboard for some time now

"Originality is not doing something no on else has ever done,
but doing what has been done countless times with new life, new breath"
-Marie Chapman

We all know everything has been done before...patterns, designs, songs, music, everything.

At least have the courage & decency if you use someone's ideas give them credit for inspiring you,
or give it enough new life & breath that it is different.

UFO Challenge...have YOU seen one?

Earlier this summer, around the beginning of May, I asked the ladies if they had any Un Finished Objects (patterns/rugs) that they would be willing to mail off on a sort of 'Round Robin' trip across the country.

Twelve women signed up to participate with nine sending a pattern on the road.

They were encouraged to send a journal with their rug to document it's travels.
Each Hooker was asked to take a photo of themselves with each rug when they finished hooking their portion.
A few of the ladies were great sports and have done so, some were camera shy & only took pictures of the rugs and a few have not sent a photo to date.
At the end I hoped to have a visual diary to send the participants of their rugs journey along with a finished or almost finished rug.

Each participant was to hook about a 4 x 4 area based on the size rugs that were requested and if you wanted to hook more or a little less that was okay.

We are about halfway through with the rugs travel and I thought I would share some of the photos of each Rug as it started it's journey.

The person who sent them and the State they are from are above their rug/pattern sent in alphabetical order

Brenis from CO

Cheryl from Tx

Christie from NY

Cyndi from PA

Dulcy from MO

Jo from TX

Laurie from CO

Lois from RI

Mimi from CO

We all are having a WONDERFUL time contributing to someone's rug and are enjoying seeing each new rug when it arrives.
