No Quoddy Looping tonight

It's snowing in St Andrews... again... so we won't be meeting tonight for our regualar rughooking group. Hope to see you next week at 6:30!

I was hoping for a couple of new winter mats to post, but that will have to wait for next week. This is one of my favourite winter photos from Kingsbrae Garden. It's not a trick of the eye -- that Adirondack chair is super-sized!

Snow days are great for rughooking!

Making some more progress on 'live simply... I think the lettering is better now, unless I go to one colour, or one colour per thought.

The next challenge is what hit-or-miss border to use for the third and final border..I am testing two ideas - sort of paisleys on the left [but using a plaid for background, so not using up as many odds & ends as I had hoped] and then a zig-zag hit-or-miss along the bottom. I'll do some more of that and maybe use both borders, or just one. Depends how it looks when I get more hooked. I want to have this done and on the floor before too long - though we're not about to run out of winter weather anytime soon!
