Our Sunday was bright and sunny with temps in the mid 30's.
Perfect for a visit from Sweet B and her family. We have not seen them it seems in forever! No Christmas, and no birthday! But today was the day! She ran in and hugged me so tight, how I have missed her. She gave her parents a hard time when it was time to go. She loves being with us as all things stop and all attention is just for her. There will be days in her life when she will not want her old grandparents around so we will indulge her until that happens. What a joyous day it was!
My daughter had several of our wedding pictures when her aunt cleaned out she passe them to my daughter. So she brought one to us. Sweet B asked why her mother was giving us pictures of random people lol. She had a very hard time believing it was her grandparents. Ahh youth.
I get the magnolia Journal magazine, not my favorite but this month they had this question. I could think of several things that are keeping me from what really matters to me, how about you?
So shall we see what is going on in the hooking room?
Husband made that sign some time ago perfect I would say.
I got a new table! At the habitat store for 40.00 I painted the trim black and husband put wooden blocks under the legs to make it counter height. a perfect work table.
I hung up some of my rugs (there area a few I did not hook in there)
and ordered new bedding, it is on its way.
I have been working on herb angel just background left. and I may need to dye some more.
Saundra over at woodland junction is hosting a challenge....
You choose a pattern from her offers and hook it with fabrics and things you would not normally use like the very first rug hookers. They used what they had. So I gathered some cottons, vintage bark-cloth, some lace, seam binding, and some yarn. And I chose the tulip.
I kept it small so I could accomplish it.
I have a whole new respect for the first rug hookers,this is not easy. I am at least started and will finish. But very glad I kept it small. You should visit Saundra's blog she is posting them as they are done. Amazing work.
I am a week and half out from my second vaccine. It made the visit today possible.
We are in for more snow tomorrow. Of course I have to drive an hour south to a Dr's appointment. I had to wait months to get into this Dr so cancelling is not a good option.
But because we are getting fresh snow I will try snow dying, it seems to be everywhere this week. The Old Tattered Flag did a demo and lit a fire under all of the people with snow! There have been some amazing results.
All of you in the South, I hope tonight finds you warm, healthy and fed. What a horror you have been through. I saw people in the north saying "what is the issue this happens to us all the time?" But we are prepared and lots of us have wood stoves or generators to get us through.
Have a wonderful healthy week!
