Iced Bell jar, looks like a natural snow globe....

As usual, we are very busy here at The Old Tattered Flag.  I've churned out quite a few new designs and as you can see my mother has been very busy hooking them.  I JUST LOVE the new "Trimming The Tree" rug.  The colors we chose are just perfect, and I asked Mom if she would mind if I did the torn wool twisted strip edging for the border.  I think it looks mighty fine!!

Next is a "Vintage Golfer" rug my mother made for my brother who is a golf pro in Florida.  I sure hope he doesn't read my blog!!!  It's a Christmas gift.  Not primitive, but very pretty.  The colors mom chose are just gorgeous.  I can tell you that argyle border was not fun to draw, but I'm sure it was worse to hook, but, what an effect.  It is breathtaking.  I'm not sure if I'm going to offer it as a pattern although I do that a lot of you have Golfers in your family.  If you are interested in the pattern, let me know. 

Next a couple things in our yard.  It's very cool here at night, but downright gorgeous during the day with temps in the 50's-60's and nice and sunny.  

I've gotten a couple of the Angels done and they are SUPER primitive, not for everyone and especially not for the faint of heart.  I always use to say that if my husband said they were ugly, then I had achieved the right look.  I'll get photos of them on tomorrow.  

Until next time.....
