Playtime and Rug Hooking

As promised in my last post, here's the Playtime quilt I put together for Sager Creek Quilts.  They're offering it as a block of the month - a bargain at only $15 per month.

The other afternoon I was talking with a good friend who gently reminded me I hadn't posted any progress on my rug.  I am waiting for my cutter to arrive.......ok.......ok.......that's a pretty lame excuse since I do have bags of strips I could use.  But that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  Here's what I've accomplished so far.  I do plan to make some progress once that cutter arrives. 

Yesterday I played with some applique and 4 patches.  These days 4 patches are about the most my mind can handle.  As soon as this project is ready, I'll post a photo.

Mom was supposed to have her first chemo treatment last week but wasn't feeling well.  The oncologist delayed it until this week but then dropped a bombshell that he's decided to treat it very aggressively so she has chemo Thurs, Fri, and Sat this week.  Last week I heard the best words I've heard for quite some time:   "it's potentially curable."  Amazing how those 3 little words can mean so much.  Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.  Until next time.


  1. Such a sweet quilt and I love the four patch.
    Can't wait to see more of the hooked rug. Are you getting a townsend cutter or whatever they are called now days.?
    I am a quilter,rughooker and cancer survivor.

  2. Hi Katie
    BIG congrats on the cancer survivor!! So far, so good on the chemo - just one more day of this round. Yes, it's Townsend and still is not here. Maybe next week.....
