Eema Update & a Couple of Rugs ~

I got an Eema update from Mom Dolly.  The tumor has grown a bit, but she is not showing signs of being ill.  Dolly reports that she is still experiencing a good life and enjoying her days.  These pictures were taken just a few days ago.  Here she is trying to get a treat from her Kong.  Eema loves her treats!

Playing with her "mousie".

Enjoying the sun on the deck!

As if Dolly hasn't enough to deal with, Eema's Ohio Pug Rescue sister Cher is also having some issues with her knee caps.  Dolly is supposed to keep Cher calm and not let her jump or do stairs.  Good luck with that!  The first time I met Cher, I said she acted like a pug on drugs.

Last night was hooking at the library.  I only got a couple of pictures before my camera battery died.  I hate when that happens.  Here's Sylvia's rug ~ very bad color but what fun.  The circles are all rolled wool.

Andrea is working on the chicken rug that was started at camp.


Here's lookin' at you kid!

I finished the hooking on my little eagle mat.  I'm happy with the way it came out.  Now to get it bound and to my BFF ~ UGH!  (Not the BFF part, the binding part.)

There is a hook in this Saturday at Kingwood Gardens in Mansfield, Ohio.  I really haven't planned my next rug and do not have time to do so in the next day and a half, so on a leftover piece of linen, I drew up a pumpkin and will have room for another small mat or two.  I guess that's what I'll take with me, though I know I won't do much hooking!


Please say a prayer for a very dear friend.  Both Judy and her hubby Neal were very special friends to both Fritz and me.  Neal went to meet his Katie and Sadie at the Rainbow Bridge.  My heart aches for Judy.  I'm sure your prayers would be greatly appreciated.
Pug hugs :)

Glad to hear Eema is maintaining - she sure looks happy and content....what a lil' ham she is....Those rugs are awesome! Love the little eagle mat of yours (that background color is dreamy....!) - But the penny one and chicken one are both awesome!! Please, please show us more as they progress....Your pumpkin mat looks sweet too - but, hey - you're not leaving much to do at the hook-in - pumpkin's already hooked! I'm sending prayers up for your friend, and her family - wishing them peace and comfort...and healing. Hugs ~ Robin

I love the rolled circle rug, great primitive colors.
I hope Miss Eema does alright, I hate to think of sick dogs.
My granddaughter (12) just got a nine week old English bulldog she named him Milton

I feel sorry for Eema although her she is still having a good life now. It would just break my heart to see her suffer.She sure looks happy and well taken care of.

I"m glad that you got your little rug finished. It looks lovely.
