Groundhogs and Handbags?


Are groundhogs considered cute?  I believe so....  especially when they are babies exploring the garden.  This little guy was all over the place!  About the size of a small guinea pig.
























New fall bag in progress.......
















This fall flower motif will be on both sides of the tote I'm currently working on.  I'm thinking of a background in antique black, with lots of hit and miss colors around the edge.

I've sort of veered away from my original hooking plan, which was to do two more summer flower pillows.  I started thinking about how much I'm enjoying my hydrangea tote this season, and how I would like something to replace it in the fall.  So.... started digging through my cabinet of wool, found some colors I love, and started pulling the loops!  Also, I received this stand for my Puritan frame.  My talented can-do-all hubby,Jim, did some alterations, and now I'm hooking comfortably in my favorite chair.


















Yes..... I realize there's absolutely no relation between groundhogs and hooking, but those are things that make me happy, so thought I'd share!

Such cute little critters! Do they behave well around your plants etc? We rarely see them here. I absolutely love the colors you chose for your fall tote! It will turn heads when you carry it about! Have fun hooking in your comfy spot! Cathy G

OK! So when do I get to start lessons? Your spot does look very comfy & I think I have just the spot in my house. Let me know & I'll fix lunch. Jan

I love what your working on...oh how I wish we were neighbors I have always wanted to learn this.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit
I am off to take another dang pill and try to sleep
You should do a Blogazine story about your hooking

I think groundhogs are cute too - unfortunately Howard killed one last year - that wasn't so cute. I need a stand for hooking! and I love the colors you are using. very pretty for fall.
