A New Gig, Pure Randomness and... WINNERS!!

Hello Everyone,

Yes, definitely an odd title for a post. I just couldn't come up with something more creative... it is late.

As the title states, I have a bit of a new gig!! I am excited about the fact that I will be a regular blogger, about once every 3 weeks, on dotCanton.com. If you haven't visited, please do, today is my first post there. It is a sort of local e-newspaper. Steve Wilder, who is the creator, asked me if I would like to be a contributor. I love the idea of me being a local gal contributing to a local blog.

So if you would like to know a little more about my small corner of the world, please visit, leave a comment and say hi!!

Anyway, onto more randomness...


Say hello to Henrietta! At least I think that is what her name is... please correct me Karen if I am wrong. Anyway, my talented friend, Karen, whom I have blogged about on many an occasion, not only quilts but she rug hooks!! And she made Henrietta!

She is quite talented and I really enjoy her and her company. In fact, I haven't seen her in a little while and really need another sew-a-thon Saturday really soon... hint, hint!! Miss you, my friend.

I had the honor of meeting Henrietta at one of our all day sewing events....


Isn't she just gorgeous!! The attention to detail is unbelievable. I so admire this work and am lucky enough to own one of Karen's pieces (a different piece than Henrietta). It is proudly hanging on my studio wall. Oh no, I will not ever, ever, put it on the floor. Although, I would love Henrietta on my wall too. Thank you so much Karen for being part of my life and a constant inspiration.

Now onto the winners of the Sarah Fielke "From Little Things" Fat quarters...


The lucky winner of the above fat quarter bundle is ...

I LOVE Henrietta!!!!

The colors are fantastic!! Most hooked rugs I have seen are earth tones so this is very welcome change!

Love the rug!! I would never have thought about using fancy yarn for hair.. so clever. I really admire that kind of out of the box thinking.

Congrats on your new blogging job!! You are also so very interesting and clever.. I know it will be a hit!!

Congrats to Moe and Mimi!

I think Henrietta is a wonderful creation!

That is an amazing rug! I keep checking rug hooking books out of the library because any rugs in my price range are ridiculously short-lived. They say the hooked ones last a lifetime. I even went so far as to get some burlap and a pair of what I think are rug hooking rails (from a junk shop).

I cannot believe how pretty this one is. I would not ever ever be able to step on it either. But I bet if you did, it would not hurt it. :o)

Sherri said...

What an amazing rug...glad you are putting it on the wall!

Jackie always makes me feel like a celebrity when she honors me with a post! So happy you all like my rug! (She is for sale . . . ) If any of you have any questions about rug hooking, feel free to email at jasper6340@gmail.com and I would be happy to point you in the right direction.

Thanks so very much for everyone's kind words and enthusiasm! Be well and enjoy the Holidays.
