I Picked Up A Hook Again!

We met up with Miss B and her parents where they were
camping. Just a lovely sunset....

And it just kept going!

My friend and I got a hike in this week to our
favorite place. You can see forever from this spot.

And we saw lots and lots of these beautiful
lady slippers. which is always a treat.

I went to the dump
and look what I found! I tucked them all by
the car when I got there so I could empty the
car and put them in. I had 2 people ask me if I was
dropping them off, Nope picking up.
Miss B is going to Disney this year so I think Mini
will look great on the porch of her play house.

And yes I picked up the hook again. I bought
a new pattern got it transferred and the binding on.

Even my wool is happy to have me back!

And before bed I am reading, I love Kate Morton
It is a rainy cool day today
I made a beef stew and biscuits
and we have our feet up watching old movies.
Which feels good, We did yard work all day yesterday and the poor
old bones need the rest.

Love that sunset, what campground are they at?
You find the most fun things, I just need to have a yard sale at this point, lol.
Is that hike the one from the science center?
I can't wait to see how your rug comes out.

Wow, great dump score. Miss B will love them. I'm hooking the same pattern. It will be fun to see both versions.

Looks like a perfect weekend! We worked outdoors yesterday between rain drops! Got a lot done..felt every pain too! Today was nicer and had a Graduation party to attend. Thankfully it was next door so we only had a tiny hike to get there! Working tomorrow and I'm wishing I wasn't! Wishing it was time to retire! Ha! Just a few more years! (not that I'm counting!) Have a good week! Beautiful sunset pic! You know I love those!

It will be so much fun to watch you and Kim hooking the same pattern. I love that you put the heart with initials on yours. It does feel good to have hook in hand :)
Great dump find. I'm happy you got there first.
Gorgeous sunset.
Happy hooking :)

What a incredible view!! It looks worth the hike. What a great find!
Its always nice to have a day watching old movies.
I can't wait to see how you and Kim do this rug. I bought the pattern, but it might be a year before I get to it.
I hope you have a lovely week.
