MILLIE'S MAT AT DOG TROT FARM

I entered a blog giveaway, the blog being Millie's Mats. Kim, proprietor of Millie's Mats, was celebrating her 50th follower and the beautiful Fall season. I did not win, that honor went to Pix over at Rural Rambles. I did however become the recipient of a second giveaway. A silk satchel filled with festive pumpkins, napkins, and a sweet little mat hooked by Kim arrived at Dog Trot Farm. How exciting.
Kim, thank you so much for my lovely little mat, and all the other goodies. It was nice to have won such a sweet gift, but knowing it came from Millie's Mats is the icing on the cake!
Kim, your little mat will have a place of honor here at Dog Trot Farm, and who knows maybe someday you can see first hand how nicely your hooked mat looks in my home! Thank you.

Oh I just LOVE that little mat! I've so wanted to do that kind of rug making - it's on the bucket list. It sure looks like it goes good with your other decor. Will a kitty use it!?

What a lovely package to find in your mailbox!
One of my Cape Breton aunts is a rug hooker and I live in hope that she'll send me one someday!

Kim said...

So glad you like it. It is kind of fun to see one of my rugs in another blog!
Enjoy.

It looks so nice with your lovely pumpkin pillows. She did a really nice job. Did you ever finish that one you were doing of the farm scene? It was about the time of your month long Migraine. I still think about that as I was so new to blogging and after having them for so long too it just shocked me that you could have went through Christmas with one that never went away.
I had one last week for two days and I don't know how you could have took it.
It all looks so pretty.

I am so drawn to those types of rugs and wall hangings, I am going to learn how to do them if it kills me. Congrats!!

I have to learn how to hook a rug. It would be so rewarding to know that I made something so lovely. Congrats on your little mat!

Oh, I do love the hooked mat! As soon as my hand heals from surgery, I am going to start rug hooking again! It should be excellent therapy! I love autumn motifs!

Just wanted to thank you for your kind words on my wreath and Thanksgiving wishes. I love the rug by the way. I dabbled in rug hooking when I was younger and loved it :)
