I'm finished with Ned. I didn't think I was ever going to get him done. I had so little to hook on it for so long . . . I thought when I retired I'd have hours to hook every day. So far it has not happened and there have been a few days where I found no time to pick up the hook. Maybe if I stayed home more???
I re-hooked the flower pot and stem and am happier with it. I also added a scraggly mane. Caroline Twigg (class teacher) thought it didn't need one because of the directional hooking of that body area, but I'm glad I added it. I took pictures both inside and outside and couldn't get decent color. The gold and teal are not nearly as bright in person. Now it will join my growing pile of rugs needing binding. (On a positive note, I did start to bind one of them.)
Our trip to Ikea was fun. I've only been there once before for a very short time. This time we spent a few hours walking around. There is just so much to see. For the most part, their furniture is not my style, though there were a few things I could easily live with.
Rebekah's class was great. She is such a sweetheart. I don't have a finished ornament yet to share. It was about an hour away and we ended up driving home in some near white-out conditions. Ever since crashing on ice a few years ago, driving in bad weather frightens me, but thankfully there were no issues.
Cirque du Soleil. What can I say? The performance we attended was called Ovo (egg). It was absolutely breathtaking. So unreal what some people can do with their bodies. We really did enjoy it, though we haven't a clue what it was about . . . lol.
I really must get busy cleaning and baking pumpkin rolls!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
