With exactly 24 hours left in the month of November, armed with a nice selection of wool strips, and fueled by a ginormous piece of pumpkin bread, I set about to finish hooking this little pumpkin.
Once I got going, it was done in no time at all. This morning I stuffed and stitched and found a place for him to live.
Despite (or maybe because of) the square-ish shape, the snaggle-tooth smile, and the gnarly uneven loops and lines, I am quite fond of this new addition to the mantlepiece.
Thanks to Mary and Pam for the tutoring and inspiration. If you ever get a chance to take one of Mary's classes you MUST do it. I got supplies on line from Deanne Fitzpatrick and Karen Kahle. I cut my strips from wool I purchased. Pam tells me you can also get them already cut. Leave it to me to do things the hard way.
