I totally finished my little cake stand basket quilt and I really like it - 4" blocks.
Found the perfect fabric for the quilt back in my own stash - brown - with baskets! Yay!
Picked my tiny hexagon quilt up from the frame shop and hung it in the living room. Hard to get a good picture because of the reflection in the glass, but you get the idea. I bought the frame for $2 at the thrift store and had my son cut it down to size - then I painted it a nice golden brown color. The frame shop mounted it and added the mat and the glass.
Last week I was looking at a little pouch I use for carrying my hooks & scissors - it's bright pink with neon embroidery stitched on it - my mother-in-law brought it home from a trip to China and gave it to me.
Well, the size was right, but it wasn't exactly prim so I found I had some orange wool that was too thick and heavy to use for rug hooking - I had always planned to use it for a penny rug. I just randomly stitched some #8 wool strips to the front and back - - -
- - - added a zipper with some cute charms attached to the pull - - -

My family rug is coming along - I hope to get the two borders finished in a couple weeks or so and then figure out how to finish the inside of the rug. This is getting too big & heavy to carry to meetings, so I'll have to prep a new project that's a bit smaller and easier to transport when I go hook with friends.
Myra is making a lovely springtime rug with beautiful flowers on it - it's an original design that she worked in watercolor first - so talented!
Yvonne is making a small mat using the traditional quilt design called log cabin - working exclusively from her worms.
Nancy is halfway done with a Maggie B design - the poison green really pops against the antique black background.
