Wow, more than a month has passed since I posted. I don't know where the time goes!

I've been working on my Karla Gerard rug. Here is a picture of my progress. The rug photographed a bit darker than it actually is.

In addition, I've started a new rug for the new grandchild my daughter is having in March. I love woodland animal scenes, so with the help of some coloring books, I put together some favorite critters in a forest setting. Here's the beginnings of that rug. I've used some yarn in this rug, because I just love the texture you get.

In this closeup you can see the birch trees I've started hooking. They use a wool of mine called Winter Tracks, pictured below.

Julie Smith's fall classes began two weeks ago, and we are doing a project on dolls. We are hooking the faces and sewing the bodies. I'm not so sure about the sewing part, but we'll see. It's great to challenge myself with this. Used Pinterest, Google, and various prim Web sites for inspiration. I'll take some pictures of the finished projects as the autumn progresses.

Made a quick trip to Cape May the third week of September to go birding. Cape May is one special place in the birding world, and we got to see some new birds and meet some wonderful and experienced birders. A great place to visit anyway with lovely shops and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean.

 I believe this is a Semi-palmated Sandpiper.

Hope to post again sooner rather than later!
