Confederate Jasmine

This is the Confederate Jasmine (and California ivy) on our front porch. It's the first time it's bloomed and in the shade; it generally likes sun. it is climbing around the grapevine wreath with no help from me. I look forward to see it fully cover it.

Eventually, I hope to be more faithful in blogging. Retirement is so busy! These are two of the latest things I've hooked. You could say that I'm hooked on hooking; that would be putting it mildly! I drew both patterns, the Rock City pillow, a loose interpretation of an old illustration. There were so many See Rock Ciy signs on barns as I was growing up. We would see them on the way to the Smokies. I haven't seen one in years. The second image I have entitled God's Eye chairpaid as it felt southwestern to me when I finished. The title really followed the hooking. The only thing I drew was the largest circle in the middle, then, just started hooking.

The final picture is what I am hooking now. It is one I designed and have done a lot of the dyeing for it.
