I had to throw this picture on the blog today. It is a new color called AVOCADO and the picture really depicts the true color and mottling.

I know that I promised to show off Jane's Anniversary rug, but I will be done with it in a few days, so I might as well wait now to take the picture.

I have been updating the website. It is a good time to check out the Newsletter page, "Who's Hooked" this month, featuring rug artist Tammy Pavich and the Hook-In information. The flier has gone out for the October 9 Hook-In at the YMCA in Valley, Nebraska. Now the flier is on my website as well. Just look at the toolbar at the top of any page and click on 'Hook-In'.

The Newton Iowa Hook-In will be here before we know it. September 12, Saturday, is the date for their big event. It is always a fun day. Hope to see you there.

I have been remiss in my blogging and apologize for such delinquency! I have been finishing our new grandson Lennox's baby rug and it is finally done. I drew the design and included an ox since baby Lennox was born in the year of the ox. I put pigs in his big brother Smith's rug for the same reason.
Now on to a 50th Anniversary present for one of our Friday hookers, Jane Scott. I find it completely amazing that anyone could remain married for 50 here is to Jane and her husband Scotty! Jane picked the Karen Kahle pattern and the colors that would go in her house. She left the rest up to me. I will get a picture of the work in progress and blog it tomorrow. I started last Thursday and am moving right along. Her anniversary is Sept. 5th and I would like to get it done it time.

Time to remind everyone about the Eastern Nebraska Hook-In on Friday October 9th at the YMCA in Valley. The fliers will go out September 1, but I will tell you all about the interesting teachers we have found for the mini-classes in the next few days.

Until tomorrow.
