I can't believe how fast this long holiday weekend has flown by! Why---it doesn't even seem like it WAS a long weekend! But....a look at the calendar does confirm...4 days off has gone by.
Today...I put together a haphazardly scrappy 'figment of my imagination' flannel quilt.
Oh how I wish you could get your hands on this quilt top! These flannels are soooooooooo soooooooo soft! OMGosh unbelievably soft! This is the Jingles line from Minick & Simpson for Moda. Very vintagey looking! To me it looked like a bunch of old vintage flannel nightgowns! So I went with a very haphazard, no rhyme or reason quilt top. I really wanted it to look like someone cut up a bunch of flannel nightgowns! I can't wait to get it quilted!! It's going to be so comfy cozy!!
If you want to experience the softness yourself, read thru to the end of this post for a giveaway!
Today...I also decided to take on a new past-time....I am now a hooker! You may remember I've purchased wool for a while....
And today....I made my first loops!
Of course this isn't going to be a quick project...
Kinda like with my taste in repro samplers...it's Go Big or Stay Home....
so this is going to be fairly large rug! Something to keep me busy this winter no doubt! I tell myself I won't be in any hurry...just casually work on it. We'll see how long that holds out until I become completely hooking-obsessed and spend all my waking hours pulling loops!
With another quilt top pieced, I find myself with quite a bit of scraps and strips from the Jingles flannel! Lots actually! Very useable scraps!
If you would like these wonderfully soft cozy flannel pieces...just leave a comment and I will draw from the comments on Wednesday evening. I'll announce whose home these scraps will be going to in my Thrifty Thursday post! Please be sure and either enable your email to be visible, or leave your email in with your comment.
I hope you've all had a comfy cozy long holiday weekend! There's a cold front moving in this week...so it is definitely my intent to stay Snug as a Bug in a Rug...while I hook on my rug! ;o)
