Here I was all worried about getting all my crosses lined up straight and Kelley posts this. An antique version of the rug I'm hooking, all wonky and wonderful. Too late to change what I am doing . . . sigh. I may have to hook another smaller version more like the antique. I really am smitten.
23 of the 28 crosses on my rug have been hooked. I will share my progress once I start on the background.
Blogger can be frustrating at times, can't it? Yesterday I tried to add a new blog to my sidebar but for whatever reason, it won't let me. I'll try again later, but I'd like to give a shout out to Linda's blog. She is a local hooker who also sells on Early Works Mercantile (15th of month) as Primitive Tymes. If you get a minute, please stop by and say hi. I just got this sweet little fella from her last update. His teeth just crack me up :) He really does have eyes, just not very visible in the picture.
Here's a close up of his face. Not sure why there is that shadow on the bottom :(
Another blogger issue. A few months ago I could no longer see the number of followers I had. One day, just gone. Well, now it's back and I did nothing. It's the little things, right?
On a happy note, I will get to see my California son for a few days but for a very sad reason. A friend of his died from a drug overdose. In the county where I live (along with many other areas of the country), there is a serious opioid epidemic. This past Monday alone, 3 county residents died as a result of drugs, including a 27 year old female attorney, who had been revived at least twice in the past with a dose of naloxone. The epidemic knows no boundaries. My heart breaks for the families of the deceased.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
