Patterns......................what did you think I was going to say? I love working on larger rugs. Why? I have no idea. Smaller patterns are just to fiddly or I should say I just get going and it is time to bind it, my least favorite thing to do in rug hooking.
I found this in "The Rug Hook Book" and decided that I wanted to hook this piece. I had it enlarged to 33 by 46. Yup a big one!
I finished hooking Herb Angel, love the look on her face. Now to bind it.....sigh
Well of course I started another pattern while waiting to get more patterns I ordered. (More on that next week.)Ohhh such a sickness to many patterns not enough time. This was in a primitive quilts magazine.
I added a large bunny and I do think that the crow needs a limb or something to be on. The house has been several colors but I have decided on off white and the light brown on the side. The gray is coming out.
While flipping through things at work I found this. I texted it to my grand and she is all for us making these! Once the snow melts and we can get in the woods to collect our materials we are going to give it a try. She is so excited about it. We saw her today and she has come up with a plan....lol love it!
Do these glasses make my eyes look big? I am trying the cross stitch I talked about last week. Ugg I feel blind as a bat! I will look to see if I can order a magnifying glass to help me out.
Tipping the scales...We have had these scales forever. But when we go to the Dr our weight is about 7 to 8 lbs more. Husband is convinced that it is the weight of the clothing. I take as much off at the Dr as possible in a common hallway without embarrassing myself, and still it is that far off...
Plus I have to wear my glasses to count the little lines on this scale and that adds weight lol..
So we got new scales. But when I bought them I did not know they were suppose to Judge me. When I step on they let me know if I have gained since the last time I was on them! I like a scale that quietly tells me my current weight with no other input.
Speaking of weight, I keep making bread in the bread machine.
This is Ricotta loaf with my homemade pesto. Another new one for me and another keeper! Next time I would put more pesto in, I put a heaping tablespoon but I would double it next time.
And because I freeze any bananas that have gone by to use in bread later, I bought these. Six Bananas for 41 cents. I made some banana pudding and froze the rest for another time.
Another week and other magazine. I picked this up at the market today. I am looking forward to a cup of tea and this magazine tonight.
This also came out of a magazine and I am not sure which one, but I think it is well said or well written. Will we all reevaluate? Have you already? I know we have, I would love to hear your thoughts.
So I will close with one crappy picture. This is a very large red tail hawk sitting in our tree. It was a very cold morning and all of a sudden all the little birds were gone. We looked around and there he was. I tried to tell him there were lots nice, big, fat, gray squirrels to snack on. (they are destroying our birdhouses.) But he kept silent and looked around. I wonder what he did snack on that day? Maybe I don't want to know.
Have a wonderful healthy week!
