Progress

First I want to wish my son-in-law a happy birthday! We are very lucky to have such a great guy married to our only child.
To my new followers thank you so much! Nothing much at the dump or the thrift stores this week so I will show you a few things I really love. These are needle felted acorns. I have only needle felted once or twice but these were super easy and fun. I just collected the tops and made the acorn. This is a runner I hooked a couple of years ago. It is not as yellow as it appears here. more mottled white.
And this is progress on my large rug. I have had some time to hook.



I am not much of a house cleaner. My Mother always said we are clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy. I clean around the middle and if the lights are on dim it looks OK.
But this week while hooking I watched Hoarders, I need to stop watching that show it always freaks me out. I think now was it just one day and all hell broke lose? So each night after work this week I take one room and clean it top to bottom and weed out some things to send to the thrift store.
oh and I keep my glasses on. Now that is a new experience yikes!
Thank you for your comments I love (or is live?) to see them.
Big rummage sale tomorrow can't wait.

Your rugs look great and love the acorns! I've watched that Horders show a couple of times and it does tend to give you the heebie jeebies! LOL Always makes me wanna clean house the next day or two!

The acorns are so cute. The only thing I ever needle felted were snowman noses. "Hoarders" freaks me out too. I like you mom's idea. Lol

Cathy ~
I do love your rugs. The one is progress is going to be magnificent.
If you get your house all cleaned and need a vacation, you can some visit me ~ {{big grin}}. I've got lots of dust bunnies and pug hair ~ everywhere! I guess I am pretty neat, but the house is always in need of dusting and swiffering.
Pug hugs :)

I do try to keep an open mind in regards to hoarding, but it is hard for me to understand how "hoarders" become "hoarders." I understand keeping "stuff"(I love my stuff) but how in the world do you live with trash and all the other horrors I will not address. Love the little felted acorns and your rugs are lovely.
