We're off and running.....right in to December. Let me introduce you to our family. This gathering took place on Thanksgiving and we were only missing four. Now what is a photograph without everyone????
So one of the family decided to add the missing four and we felt so much better once the photo was revised! They were in our hearts, so the doctored photo shows that! :O)
We all sat down Friday night to watch WVU play and Lucy the lovely decided that we just won by a nose...perhaps a human's nose though!

So slow am I! There is no excuse. I work that way and it suits me. I have one small area to complete and am still tweaking, his hand, the grass in areas, holes to fill, etc. I'm as near as I will ever be to getting his face as I want it to be. It is a "stand back and look at his face" rug. Up close and you will never see him.
There will be a slender brown border. I may marry a variety of brown wool on top of the stove, to carry this border. My son and daughter in law made a decision not to frame it. After I have completed the finishing work they will use carpet tack strips cut to the correct size and hang it that way. The tacks on the top strip heading up, and if a bottom strip is used, those tacks head towards the floor. As long as this method is done in an out of the way place so no injuries can occur, it is my favorite way to display a rug.
The wind is blowing the colder weather towards this WV ridge. December is near!
Happy and warm Rug Hooking to you.
