"Hanging Quilts to Dry"

Finally finished my "Hanging Quilts to Dry" Mat. This will be the last large one for a while as there are just too many other things to do.

I hope my rendition of quilts are not an insult to our Great Quilters out there. As you can see, my measurements are "Way" off...Measuring is not a thing I like to do.... :) I did enjoy hooking it, of course, and have others in my mind that I will get to eventually.

I am pleased to say that a piece of my work relating to "Ireland" has been accepted to be submitted to "The Five Island Gallery" in Tors Cove, NL. to be juried. Maybe I will be lucky enough to have it displayed there. Cross your fingers for me and my friend, Paula, whose blog is "Newfoundland Original Hooked Rugs", who also was accepted for an entry.

This is the one I submitted to our very own "Devon House" for a display named "BLUE". I know many of you have already seen it, but for those who haven't, I hope you enjoy seeing it. It is very meaningful to me.

Last, but not least, for today is to say a BIG THANK YOU to all of my followers. I notice a few more have decided to join. Very pleased...

  2. Oh Ann, that is such nice news. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed. I love all your rugs as they are so meaningful. They show a way of life of hard working honest folks and they are heart warming.

    Your new rug, Hanging Quilts to Dry is no exception. I love it too. Your little quilts are so adorable. I hope that you have some good weather. I bet that the little lambs are growing fast. I would love some pictures soon please. JB
