Losing ourselves in art

“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
Thomas Merton

Last night, I went to Sheri’s for hooking…..I was so “lost in my art” that I forgot to take any pictures, so go bug Sheri and beg her to blog! Tell her you want to see pictures of her witch doll….it’s SO ADORABLE!

Here’s a little update on the “Redbud Runner”…’s getting closer to being finished.  Once I prep my stuffing for tomorrow, perhaps I’ll sit down and “go to town” on it while I wash all the dog bedding….yes, the dogs have a bed or two in every room of our house! That’s lots of dog beds to wash…..don’t want everyone coming over to Thanksgiving tomorrow and having our house smell like a zoo!

Above you can see Cleopatra finishing up her breakfast….she loves to dine in the “drawing room”!

Last night I worked on “filling in” the redbud leaves….I think I have 7 more to hook….perhaps I’ll finish them today.

AT&T is working on “dry looping” our service for internet when we get rid of the land-line….we may have no internet service for a couple of days….not sure when this will happen, but if I seem AWOL all of a sudden, that’s the problem.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving!


  1. Hi Tammy the runner...must feel wonderful to accomplish such a beautiful piece of art....

  2. Oh Tammy! I can't tell you how much I LOVE that rug! It has been so inspiring watching your progress! How does it feel being so close to finishing? It looks gorgeous in that spot in your home!
    I think Cleopatra is loving it too! :-)
    I have the same thing here with dog bedding! It's time for a good wash day coming up! ~~~~~~
    Have a joy filled Thanksgiving!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! Your rug is amazing -- but I was kinda looking forward to pictures.

  4. Tammy, you've really have accomplished a lot on your beautiful runner. It looks fantastic. I love the colors and everything is so well balanced.

    Dogs are people too aren't they? My last dog hated to have her bedding washed. She hated the fresh scent, oh well, dog will be dogs.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Kenny, Cleopatra and Loonie. JB

  5. Tammy,
    Your rug is stunningly gorgeous!
    Inspirational too...makes me want to put the turkey back in the fridge and cancel dinner so I can hook all day. :D


  6. That runner is awesome. I just love the colours. can't wait to see it finished and in place.

  7. Tammy ~
    That runner is just jaw dropping. I don't know if I will ever attempt to hook something that large. I think I need the gratification of finishing smaller pieces.
    Happy belated Thanksgiving.
    Hugs :)

  8. The runner is really beautiful. I can't look at it without remembering all the marker all over your legs! LOL!!!!!
    I love the bold color and just knowing that you drew this out freehand!!!!
    Way to go Tammy.

  9. Your rug is gorgeous, Tammy! Perfect color choices and placement.

    Hope your Thanksgiving was fun and delicious.


  10. The building has a super soft dog bed pillow, which works great on hard cold floors, which your dog isolation, a sense of security, and keep him comfortable through the night. Tips for using the cave dog bed: Since the bed is round and my dog ​​goes to the very back, I think it is propped against the wall, so it's not peak over.
