Happy Sunday

Happy Sunday another week gone. And a busy one as usual.

On Tuesday was voting, we still count our ballots by hand.
 I was one of 16 that counted that about 1200 ballets.
(Small town.) Thursday my women's group had their thanksgiving here at my house. I love seeing those ladies and always a laugh or two.
Friday at work my neighbor stopped by to tell me she has a friend looking to get rid of some wool. A large contractor bag of wool!
So husband and I got directions and stopped by for the wool.
But I am finding that most of it not is not pure wool it's a blend.
I washed up what I wanted pitched what I didn't.
But inside the bag was this rug I had never see one like it.

I looked it up and it is a shirred rug not very big but sweet I will keep it.

Yes we had some snow that they plowed Friday night,
with very high winds. Now it is cold brrr. But our Mt Washington was in hurricane force winds. if you would like to see them live which is a lot of fun as they are young guys and they do some fun stuff to prove how cold or how fast the winds are go here.( It is on facebook)

I work in a college town and you never know what you will find when you go in, in the morning. I look down and eyes are staring up at me near the storm drain. Yes Mr Potato head eyes! what the????

I told my coworker to look down when she came in. Then when I left I find them taped to my windshield, I didn't see them until I got into my car and started it. Funny Funny.

Another busy week ahead I am working over time every week and not happy about it. But we are in a staff shortage and I feel bad not helping out. But I have told them I refuse to work weekends.

Have a great week!!!

We had snow Friday and ice on Saturday as we were packing back up from finishing the show. Those Mr. Potato eyes are cute! Janice

Nice gift and even that type of wool can be handy to use in rugs or for pillow backings.
I do need to go through mine, a lot is too rough or thin and I will never use it all, so time to clean it out and start dying the goods I found.

Wow! What a beautiful view out your window! That Mr. Potato head really gets around (at least his eyes do anyway)! lol! Love the pics from Mt. Washington...absolutely breathtaking...and "almost" makes me like! ;-)

Too bad the wool wasn't right for rug hooking. Maybe someone can use it for rug braiding.

Wow, that a lot of wid wintery weather so early. We had a cover of snow on Friday along with rain but the snow is gone and the cold was bitter this morning. Brrr...I'm not ready for winter. I already want to hibernate.

That's funny about Mr. Potato eyes. lol.
Enjoy your week Cathy.
Hugs, Julia

It's always nice to be given wool - and fun to sort through it and dream of what you can do with it. Funny how all we see is a set of plastic eyes and we immediately recognize them as 'Mr. Potato head' parts !!!
