Birthday Girl ~

Guess who turned 6 yesterday?  Here's the birthday girl Ernestine.  She was not happy with her birthday hat :)

I have just a little progress to show you on my Crooked River guild challenge rug.  The trees were hooked with two different wools.  (I was going to show the wools, but the pictures were so bad you wouldn't have had a clue as to what the wools were.)

Not much else going on.  I still haven't finished my taxes and the April 17 deadline is quickly approaching . . . sigh.  I do this every year.  Tomorrow is the first of three April hook ins.  Not vending at this one but helping sell raffle tickets.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Trees look great. Oh my, my taxes have been done for over a month now and received my return.

Your trees look great. And so does the birthday girl.

Julia said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet Ernestine. I don't like birthday hats either to tell you the truth.

Lauren, your trees are looking good and the picture looks great on my computer.

I don't have my taxes done either but our deadline here in Canada is April 30. I don't like taxes either, lol.
Hugs, Julia

She looks better in a hat than I do. I know she had a great birthday because she is much loved! How is Enchilada doing? Have fun this weekend.

Love that look, she is so expressive. The rug looks wonderful, nice variation in the trees.

Ernestine is one loved pup !
Every year I say I'm going to get my taxes completed by the end of February. Ha ! There’s a reason there is a deadline. ;)
Have a great weekend !

Hmmm...maybe some feathers on that hat would make Ernestine happy? Feathers always add that special touch to every occassion. LOL

I HATE doing taxes. The sad thing is, it only takes about an hour to gather the paperwork for us and for Dad. I don't why I wait so long. I just put it off until I hit my CPA's deadline of March 10th. LOL

Have a wonderful weekend!

Taxes are being done today. Not happy around here. So I am reading blogs.
Happy sixth birthday to Earnestine. What a cutie pie. I love those greens and your trees look wonderful. A very happy rug. Have fun at your hook ins.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Ernestine! I think you look sweet in that wear it well.
I tried hooking again today and just can't get into it...not sure what is happening with me. Maybe too much happening here around the house lately. Maybe when all projects are done I can focus on hooking.
Have fun at your hook-ins.
