The Peconic Rug Hookers Raffle Rug 2009

I had the honor to be asked to design this years raffle rug for the Peconic Rug Hooking Guild. I just finished transferring the design to the linen today and am really excited about how it turned out. The very talented ladies of this group will begin working on it at the February hook-in and hope to have it ready to be shown at the Hallockville Fall Festival in October.

My Very First Primitive Stitchery Pattern

I have to admit that I have been obsessed lately with Primitive Stitchery. I just love the simple lines and warm time- worn look. But after stitching up a few ready- made kits that I had hanging around, I ran out of things to do. So, being both retired and bored (a very bad combination I might add), I decided to try my hand at designing my own... On went the Blues Music, out came the pencils and ..... Look at what I made! My very first Primitive Stitchery Pattern.

My very first blog post ever...

I am brand new to all of this online stuff, so please be patient and don't expect too much out of me! I suppose I shall introduce myself. That would be a good start right?
After owning my own business for the last decade, I am recently retired and have returned to my first love, creating primitive folk art in my little bay side studio on the east end of Long Island. I have been married for 30 years, have two grown children and a houseful of pets.Mojo is the first pekingese I have owned, the first little dog I have ever had, and now I am hooked and have four of these little darlings running around! This is Sophia looking very modelesque, she can be found in her favorite sun spot most any afternoon.
