Can it all be done?

Okay, I'm one for the vintage crafts and fabric, I think the items from long ago and the history that comes with it, is just glorious. I enjoy pass-a-long crafts, etc., and I've never refused any of it. I have to start asking myself, "Can it be done?" Oay vey....check out this latch hook.
This pretty latch hook is about 9'' x 5'' and is meant to be oval when finished. IF....if I get to it, I'll make it square because all four sides are bound. My mother in law gave this to me, she was given a bunch of latch hooks about 12 years ago and promised me this one for the house. She has had poor health and can not do alot. Look what else came with my roses.

I tell you.....isn't hickory-dickory-dock cute!?! I like the blue rug also, it reminds me of the older patterns or at least, seems less modern. The one in the middle is actually a pillow, it's double sided.


Through out the years, I've been purchasing wool rug yarn for the roses because it's one thing, I know, needs quality materials. I feel that way because so much work goes into these rugs, they should have the best. My mother in law also gave me back the yarn.


And then some. There are two of these large trash bags full of cut yarn, also the yarn I bought. I ask......

Can it all be done? C & G Design.

That is a TON of yarn. It will be quite an heirloom when finished. Sorry to hear about your mother in law.

If I can do it, remember tweedy? It was heavy when done.
So little time is right! I tried to get madame to do h-d-d but she wants the blue one.

They are all very pretty and will look great on the wood floors. You should tell Judy that you would love to have one of the rugs done but do not have the time to do it right now and if she would do it for a present for all of you it would then mean so much more to everyone. It would give her a purpose and everyone would benefit from it, but probably most of all Judy would benefit the most.

I'll try mom, but she is so ailing, I don't know. Hopes for it working!
I put all of her 2001 seeds in a shaker yesterday so she would get out. She wanted to keep them, what's the percent of germination? Little if none but she promised me.

O WOW!!!!!! I love the hickory dickory clock!!! Wow, soo much yarn. You better get busy!

Dawn I know she is ailing but not so sure it is all medical and she does love her family so much that it would give her a purpose. I thought she looked better the other night than I have ever seen her look. I think the chair is the curse, as you and Jack of all Trades have said many times. Ofcourse I think probably Nathan has a lot to do with it also. Nothing worse in the world.

I know the feeling...I just purchased a group of 17 vintage latch hook rug designs from ebay. Most of them are HUGE! I've ordered the yarn for one...then I'll only have 16 more to go...Hmmm...I may need a bigger house to put all of these rugs in...
