Happy Friday

I wanted to answer Gayle's query about the pineapple mats at the LIGRA show.  I believe Norma Batastini of Hand in Heart Rug Hooking taught the pineapple class to the guild.

I've been hooking away -- the Long Island Fiber Festival is coming up a week from Saturday and Barb and I will be vending there.  I've had a welcome mat in my head for awhile now, so I drew it out on monday and had it hooked by Tuesday afternoon.  It took about 6 hours to complete.  I hooked it with a hit or miss border and the same background as Mary's Runner, so they relate.  I am pleased with it.

I was so pleased with it, I started a chair pad to match.  These two pieces were not what I planned to work on this week, but sometimes you just have to go with the flow.  The flash washed the picture out -- the chair pad isn't nearly that bright.

On the lobster front:  I think  have decided on the large black and white squares,with maybe red piping to finish . . . 

Hope all you moms have a wonderful Mother's Day.

Wow, what a beautiful Welcome mat. I love how you did the border and the lettering is so even. I agree with Cathy of Acorn Hollow, you are an amazing hooking machine. It's a good thing your wool didn't catch fire. lol.

I love that second circular one too.
Thanks foryour comment on my blog. I so appreciate your visit.
