I have had to work the past two Saturdays not my favorite thing to do.
So they gave me today off (Monday!) I watched the sun come through the trees
and headed for the hospital to get some blood drawn (just the yearly thing)

By the time I got home I was so hungry. So a scone that I made Sunday and a
cup of coffee and I was good to go.

And I finished! Yahoo! ok the binding is left to do but it is
steamed and ready.

I said I would not decorate for fall but we are having company
next weekend I had to do a little.
My Brother in law and his wife are coming for the weekend
we are touring 6 NH vineyards and going to see a show at the college
a very fun weekend.

My one thrift find this week is a rock yes a rock that has been drilled for a candle
holder. I have seen these and really like the look and for 1.00 its a deal.

And to top the day off we went kayaking and saw the loons
getting ready to leave in the next month. I would say
we fit a lot into my Monday.
Have a great week.
Things turn our best for people who make the best of the way things turn out.

Your scone is making me HUNGRY!!!
Your rug turned out great! Love the stubby legs on the kitty. I hope you are better at binding rugs than I am. I have 5 rugs and 2 pumpkins that need "finishing". UGH!
Hugs :)

Love the rug and I'm glad you finished it. Have a good week and keep finding those dump items because it amazes me every time I see what you get! Hey, was it cold on the lake? Brrrrr!

Fabulous picture of the sun coming through the trees. Mother Nature sure can do some beautiful things when she wants.

Balisha said...

Your rug turned out so cute. Is it for you or a gift?
Have a fun weekend.

Julia said...

Wow, you fitted a lot in one day. A great way to start the week. That scone looks good and makes me feel hungry.
Your cat rug looks great and the rock candle holder is interesting.

I never kayaked but it looks like fun. I have a soft spot for loons. I love their call.

Hope your week is filled with interesting moments. Hugs, JB

I love it. You are so talented. I am totally cutting back on fall decorating but my hubby put some up over the weekend. He can't help himself. Enjoy your company.

Nellie said...

I hope you have good results from your bloodwork. Missing meals is not something I like to do, so fasting is no fun for me.:)

That is a very good plan for entertainment of your coming company. I believe I will hide somewhere in their suitcases.:)

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Wow, you have been busy. I really love hooked rugs, and yours are especially adorable. The rock candle holder is pretty interesting. It makes you stop, stare and wonder, "How in the world....???"
Have a great weekend.

It is amazing how much you get done. I do wish I were like you.
My bucket list has rug hooking on it so maybe one of these days I can slow down and do this.
Cathy your deoorations are pretty and it sounds like a delightful weekend coming up.
