Fini ~

Woo hoo!  It looks like blogger is up and running.  Yesterday my reading list reappeared and then blogger was down.  Just in the last few minutes I see that my last post is also back.  Do you think I am a little too addicted to blogging?

My Maggie Bonanomi rug is finally bound and my next task is to sew on the label.  I made myself bind it so I could take it to the Western Reserve ATHA Chapter 119 hook-in tomorrow.  I've never had a rug in a show before.  It would have been nice to have the Magdalena horse rug bound but it wasn't meant to be . . . sigh!  Maybe next year  :)

The colors are much more subtle in person.

I hope to have many rugs to share with you from the hook-in!
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

I love your rug! I think we are all addicted to blogger. It was rough the last couple of days. Have a great time at the hook-in! Like everyone else said...take lots of picks...and I'm so glad you're bringing something for the show.

Love your rug! Do you have a spot picked out in your home for it yet?
It will be fun to have something in the rug show! Snap lots of pics! Please!
I hope Blogger doesn't keep having problems..... we take it for granted so much of the time and it's become part of a daily ritual!
Have fun at the show!

Such a frustrating week with BLOGGER!

Looking forward to seeing you and your rug at the Hook-In tomorrow, I love the flower pics so much better than the snake ones!

Lauren, I hope that you have fun at the rug show tomorrow and I'm sure that you will get many nice comment on your new rug. I'm hoping that you will get a ribbon too.

I find that it's always hard to get just the right color when I take a picture of my rugs too. I'm so glad that Blogger is back. I wanted to do a post last evening but Blogger had the flu and was down. I'm going to try to post after I've do my round with my followers. JB

I will be at the Hook-In tomorrow as well! See you then!
