Midnight Watch

In 2009, the Blackbird Girls did it to me again.  They introduced a new design called Midnight Watch.  I could not wait to get my hands on this design.  Black cats and fall colors--it was calling my name.

In June of 2010, AppleJack and I took a road trip to Kansas City.  We had a great time and Kansas City was a great town.  AppleJack and I are spontaneous travelers.  Stopping at stitch stores is always on the agenda when traveling.  I had read about this stitch store called Ole Mill Stitchery in Liberty, Missouri  We got out our trusty map and followed the signs.  Ole Mill Stitchery was a fun find, many purchases later and nice ladies, I wandered across the hallway to American Whatever!  WOW!!  If you love wool, if you love hooked rugs, if you love creative, high energy people and a cat named Rosie, DO NOT MISS American Whatever in Liberty, Missouri.  You will think you have died and gone to heaven.  Sorry there are no photos my camera was on the fritz, the day we visited.  One of the great finds at American Whatever was this wonderful re design of Midnight Watch.

This is my 2012 rug hooking project.  As you can see, it is in its beginning stages.  There are many fun stages along the way--purchasing the wool!  Next step, cutting the wool--a great Sunday afternoon project.  Callie Mae naps and supervises while I cut away.  Sometimes we find an old movie to watch, sometimes a Law and Order marathon or Sopronos marathon or History Channel.  Am looking forward to working on this project and hope to complete for fall 2012.  The design and colors just say fall to me.

  1. I made a rug hook many, many years ago and really enjoyed doing it. The wool is very expensive to buy in the UK. I am going to enjoy following your progress.
