Re-arranging my office/hooking room

I am a lucky girl.  I have a great room that is all mine.  Of course, it is the favorite hang-out spot for the kitties and oftentimes, my daughters.  Last week, I pulled up the carpet, removed all the tack strips and staples, and put a fresh coat of paint on the floor.  I have ordered a large braided rug from Pine Tree Barn and will be recovering the upholstered pieces in the coming weeks.  In the process, I ended up completely re-arranging the furniture and love it! My desk used to be on the opposite side of the room and partially blocked the larger window.  This new arrangment works so much better.
I now have better natural light to hook and a cozy spot for the kitties.  As you can see from this photo, Trucker and Twinkle are pretty happy with it!

Isn't he handsome?  I am in love...

Finally back to hooking!

Glad to see the snow flying in the air and happy to have a cozy afternoon to work on my latest rug. I am making this one for my mom. It is the perfect hybrid of a primitive and patriotic rug - which suits my momma to a "t." The pattern is available from Spruce Ridge Studios.
