With fall in full swing, my summer heat coma is over and I’m feeling more focused. This week I finished hooking Frogger and even found time to bind him. This frog first appeared in a round-robin rug swap I did with the other two Meyvns. I added the frog to Baby Meyvn’s rug and I thought he would make a nice design for a small mat. I changed him a bit and made him more colorful. There’s just something about frogs that makes me smile. The Frog is one of my totem animals, so I have many representations of him around the house.
I also started color planning my rug titled, Be Mine, for the Lori Brechlin Out of Hand rug challenge on Facebook. I’m going for a primitive look, so I have married some wools for the background and the border. I also used some onionskins and a bit of chestnut dye to give the wool a mottled “old” look. If this rug comes out looking like it does in my mind, I’m going to like it.
October is my favorite month and is filled with activities. I look forward to it all year and then it’s over in a blink. I’m trying to focus on each day and the beauty it brings to my eyes and my heart.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the glorious month of October!
