Her fleece is kind of dirty.
But when I get her all hooked up
I think she'll look real purdy.
How's that for a redneck poem? I know, don't quit the day job :)
So often when it's time to go to hooking, I have nothing on the frame. That was the case last week as I was heading to That'll Do Farm. I had just finished Tin Rooster (another of Maria's patterns) and hadn't planned ahead. I quickly put this little sheep on linen. I think she is coming out quite sweetly, even if I do say so myself.
Yesterday my hooker partner in crime, Melissa, and I headed to Shelby, Ohio, to the Ault's for their sale. We thought we died and went to wool heaven. Even sale wool add$ up quickly!
Today I went to an antiques show. This show seems to alternate from wonderful to so-so to not so good at all. I suppose if you like jewelry or glassware items, this would be a show you would enjoy. Unfortunately this year it wasn't very good at all. With only 30 vendors and a $6 admission, I won't be attending next year. I did find this vintage pond boat (50's or 60's???) for my brother's birthday next month. Other than that, I bought a $1 bag of buttons and a little $1 tin heart mold.
It's a cold one in northern Ohio today (about 20), but the sun was a welcome sight. Here's Ellie soaking up a few rays.
Thanks so much for stopping by. To those of you lucky enough to be off tomorrow, enjoy! This is the only government holiday I don't get off. It would be nice, but I'm not complaining (well, not much). I'm just thankful to have my job.
Pug hugs :)
