New design for Valentine's Day...An awesome gift/ trade......going to finish an old rug...


I've finished up my new design for Valentine's Day...and I haven't decided what to do with it yet...I am going to print it out and begin to hook it, BUT...I would love a few people , who are interested, to have the design, and sticking as close as possible to the colors I chose, hook it up for me, and possibly use a picture of the finished rug as the model for the cover of the pattern .... Are any of you interested ?? I will take the first 3 people who respond that they would like to do it .....OH...I will make sure and put on the pattern cover who the rug was hooked by and their Ebay ID or wherever they sell their wares also, so this will give you a little plug too !!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now...remember when I posted about the boo boos I was getting from the sharp little tines on my hooking frame ?..so many sweet and very sensible suggestions ...I was all set to cut the toes out of a sock and wear it on my arm.....( I don't wear long sleeves much, because I still get hot flashes alot...fun ).  Then a sweet lady , Myra, emailed me and wanted to send me a frame cover made by a place in Kentucky called Breezy Ridge Rugs ....I suggested a trade for some of my patterns....
let me tell you...my humble little doodles, cannot even begin to compare in value to this gift...It is amazing !! It is made of super thick off white flannel, and is so easy to adjust with the stretchy strings wnd special lock thingys ( lol ) it works so nice !! And the packaging and little card that was sent was so cute too !!! Thank you so much Myra !!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now that my church rug is finished, I decided to finish this poor rug that was on my frame all through the move here and sat on it till I started the church rug...It was a challenge design from AAPG group, and this was all I completed, before things got crazy....

so, I am going to try to finish very quickly, before I start my Valentine's Day Rug...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hope you all have a fun, joyful weekend, and I hope to hear from a few of you about hooking up a possible model for the pattern cover....I .don't want to hurt anyone's feelings if I don't choose your rug for the cover, but my decision will most likely be based on which one the colors strike my fancy most...Ok, we are all big girls, so I hope folks would understand...
Hugs,
Robin

What about making a stitchery and coloring with crayons? I do not rug hook but I do stitcheries and I love your patterns.

Robin,
I could do a punch needle for you (don't have the time/wool for rug hooking at the moment). I'm on a punch needle kick right now!

How nice Myra mailed you a cover! Angela at Breezy Ridge Rugs is a doll! She has been so helpful with my rug hooking... you have no idea! She has great designs for hooking too!

The rug on your frame now is beautiful! Life is a bit busy here... or I would have loved to have hooked your new Valentine's doodle... I know you'll find a goodie!

Hi. Just found your site (from Notforgotten Farm). I love hooking too and quilting, and on and on. Wish I'd found your site earlier, as we've had these wonderful little protectors for our frames here in Indiana around for several years. They are wonderful. To a great crafty new year, vickied

Hi Ronin, thanks for your comment on my blog.
Your rug is beautiful as well as your designs.

What a thoughtful blogger to send you a nice frame cover to protect your arms. I had to make my own with a wool tartan skirt bought at a thrift store. It works so well.
Have a great weekend.
