Auntie Peanut ~

What a busy week it's been!  Between my day job, yard work and my two evening digital camera class, there has been no time for fun stuff (ie, hooking or punching!). 
The camera class was only 4 hours and I did learn about some of the camera settings, but it didn't really cover things I was hoping it would.  No real suggestions on how to get true colors when taking pics of hooked rugs.  I also wanted to learn more about when a person should use the program auto, intelligent auto, etc.  Maybe one of these days I'll have to take a look at the manual.  It is on a dvd and I can't figure out how to print it.  Pretty sad, no?  I guess that would be the first step.  Baby steps, right?
Next up on the frame is Auntie Peanut.  I ordered the pattern from Saundra of Woodland Junction and that sweet blogging friend gifted it to me knowing that I was hooking it as a birthday gift.  Isn't it just the greatest pattern?  THANK YOU, SAUNDRA :)

Saundra's Auntie Peanut.  I hope mine comes out half that good!

For all you hooker wannabees and newbie hookers, Saundra has some really great, very reasonably priced kits that even contain the hook. For experienced hookers, she has wonderful patterns. She also has dolls, bears, and so much more on her website. You won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
