Another UFO . . .



Here is another unfinished object I need to finish sometime soon . . . This one is not so old -- I started in November 2007 for my friends Anne-Marie & Mike and their two daughters, Natalie and Charlotte. It's a housewarming rug (they moved at the end of October) featuring their two basset hounds, James Bond and Lola. James is the big guy -- Charlotte and Natalie say he's "portly." Lola is mostly black and has a big chunk missing out of her left ear. They are characters -- like all basset hounds -- and they are built like Mac trucks. I know, I've tripped over them more than once. It's like hitting a brick wall -- they don't move, but I go flying.

So my aim is to finish this one up sometime this summer. I just took on a job to finish the background on a rug for a lovely woman who had rotator cuff surgery and can't hook anymore, so my ufos are going to take the back burner again. But I'll keep you posted!

Thanks everyone! I brought it to their housewarming party to show them and they love it so far . . . We've been friends for a quarter of a century and this is the first rug I'm hooking for them . . . I'd better get to it!
