Thank you so much for dropping in :)
FINALLY!!! My Christmas decorations are all boxed up and have been hauled to the attic. It has never taken me this long to get everything boxed up and put away. But I'm done. Woo hoo! I am doing a little happy dance. About 80% of my "normal" things are now back in place. I must have spent a half hour looking for 2 of my hooked rugs. Now, I must confess, I was re-blonded last night, but how do you lose hooked rugs? (Actually, I still haven't found a hooked rug that I put away at Christmas at least four years ago. One of those mysteries that may never be solved!) I finally found the rugs, but still cannot find one of my framed cross stitch pieces that I need to rehang.
Here's a few before pictures...
I had about given up on my amaryllis blooming. I planted them before the end of November and by Christmas they had not grown an inch. I was hoping to find the receipts (highly doubtful) and return them to Home Depot. Well, lo and behold, they are starting to bloom. The stem on the one in bloom is only about 6" tall. I've not had luck getting them to re-bloom again so I just buy a couple new ones each holiday season.
BFF Belinda and I finally got together to exchange our gifts and she got me this sweet little penny mat. She tried to tell me she made it but I knew better...lol!
She also gave me these Halloween items. I just love the stack of pumpkins.
Oh, dear little Hopscotch has been full of pi** and vinegar lately. Our Loocie is 5 1/2 and VERY laid back and Hopscotch just torments her to no end. Hopscotch wants so bad for Loocie to play and for the most part, Loocie will have nothing to do with it, but poor Hopscotch just won't give up! Isn't she just too cute?
I have been busy hooking my little mats and I've completed three of them and two of them have the binding sewn on. Woo hoo, I'm on a roll. Maybe my hooking mojo is returning? I certainly hope so! I've also done the little cross stitch piece, but only the stitching is done. Hopefully I'll have pictures to share soon.
Time to get back to work.
Pug hugs :)
