It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
I have been feeling so Christmasy, that I started this Glad Tidings rug last week. Yes, Beate, I finished it in a week, but it was a lot of fun and went quickly. I did it in a 6 cut, because of that wreath. My horse Hairy was the model for Santa's horse. This pattern is from Spruce Ridge Studio and is a Lori Brechlin design. I love it and am going to take it in to Leonardo's Framing tomorrow. They think they can have it done for Christmas!
Below, you see my 'Quinn' rug. This rug is for a very special young lady who has been in my theatre world since she was 6 years old. Maggie, grew up at the theatre, sang in Youth Choir, did summer theatre every year and then played leads in our shows as she grew up. She went to medical school and is now a resident in pediatrics. I could not be more proud of her! Maggie married a wonderful guy last year and now is a brand new mom. Quinn was not due for another week or so, but she surprised everyone by arriving on Thursday…..OPENING NIGHT! I contend she was born to be a theatre girl, born on an opening night, how could she not. Give me 6 years with her and she will be ready to be Tiny Tim in 2020. This is Quinn's rug and I am glad I got it finished in time for her arrival. Pris Buttler designed this pattern especially for her and I started it at this year's retreat. As you can see, she will always have an angel watching over her. I hid her parents initials under her name. I hope baby Quinn will love it, it was certainly made with love by her theatre nana.
DO NOT FORGET we are having the store Christmas Party next Saturday, Dec. 13 from 10-5. It will be an all day hooking and everyone is invited. You can bring something to share and we will eat and hook and solve world problems all day long. Hope you can make it!
See you soon,
