I'm a day late . . . so what else is new? In honor of Memorial Day, I am posting a picture of what is one of my all-time favorite hooked rugs, hooked by Donna Hrkman. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this rug.
I hope everyone had a good holiday and took a minute to remember our veterans and the ultimate price some of them paid. Freedom is not free. God Bless our soldiers.
I'm also late picking a winner of the hearts and clover pattern on linen. Congrats to Lilly. Please send me your snail mail address and I will get the pattern mailed tout de suite.
I've been a hooking fool lately (or is it just a fool . . . I'll get to that in a minute). I finally took a look around my yard the other day. Oh, dear, I need to get busy. I did the initial spring cleanup and haven't done anything other than cut the grass since.
There are so many squirrels in my neighborhood and they run around like wild children. Here's one feasting on a helicopter from the maple tree. I have so many helicopters, I could feed an army of squirrels.
Now the fool part. After work I needed to make a few stops near the mall, about 20 minutes from home. I was on a mission and was going to accomplish my tasks quickly. I do not, repeat, DO NOT like to shop. In my haste to enter JoAnn's and not wanting to forget my coupon, I set the keys down, left them there ~ and proceed to lock the car. GGRRR!!! So I call AAA and am told it is a busy day and there is a two hour wait. Now I am really mad at myself. Thankfully my son was not working so he is going to rescue me. I am on the phone to cancel my AAA call and luckily answered my beep because the tow company said they'd be there in less than 10 minutes. All in all I probably lost 25 minutes time, completed my errands, came home, did yard work and here I am. Whew! Makes me tired just thinking about it. And the best (worst?) part is that I did not use the coupon because the items were already on sale.
Thank you so much for stopping by and listening to my ramblings.
Pug hugs :)
