Well not much to crow about this week. Lots of work
and not much fun.

This is my Star Island rug I have finished the 3 dorries.
and no that is not a flying sheep it's my magnet. It is coming along bit by bit. I need to get it done before I go back to Star Island. (I can't wait to go)

I know I have shown this rug before but it is yard sale season and just as a reminder if you find an old rug. I purchased this for 2.00 it was falling apart every where, If you touched it it ripped, and I didn't know what to do??? So husband got 
A piece of plywood we painted it black and I glued it on the board.
I do not recommend doing that to anything but a rug that is so unstable it will fall apart. After I ran a light vacuum over it and hung it on the porch and low and behold it has been there for years and years! So I was able to save it!  And I completely love it!
The blueberries are ripe! So we will hit the kayaks when it stops raining to pick and pick.We got lots last year and it was so wonderful to eat blueberry muffins when the snow was swirling and we were remembering the warm days in the kayak.
Have a wonderful weekend, we have a garden walk we want to attend if it is not raining.

Love the antique rug you salvaged from demise. You did the best thing otherwise it would have fallen apart. Now you have a beautiful rug to hang on the wall in remembrance of a rug hooker and time gone by.

Also great job on your hooked piece.

I love what you guys did to save that old rug. It's beautiful and worth the effort to salvage it. Wow, $2.00... Incredible...
Oh my, how lucky you are to be able to pick all those blueberries. I'm coming over to taste one of your blueberry dessert.
Enjoy your weekend.
Hugs, Julia

Love your rugs and how your boat piece is coming along, I bet you can't wait to go back.
That is a good idea for the rug, most i see are too beat up and not worth saving, but i always keep my eyes out.

Garden walks, lake living, blueberry picking, all my favorite things! I'd throw in rug hooking but I'll leave that favorite to you. Love the rug you cute! Have a great weekend!

That garage sale rug is a beautiful find! Love how you saved it too! :-) Enjoy your blueberries! Those tiny wild variety are the sweetest!

Sounds like a perfect summer thing to do pick blueberries. I love those rugs.
What a great idea with the board.
Here on the west coast I never see any hooked rugs. I always look for them.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend.
