I finished up a little rug. I have wanted to make this for 8 years. It was one of the first patterns I saw when I discovered the world of blogging. I also found people who hooked rugs like I had been dreaming of since of the early 90s when my hands were full of babies, homeschooling, and life. There was no time in those days for anything but looking at pictures. So finally eight years in the making. Here is my bunny rug.

I loved hooking this bunny. I can always tell when I like hooking a motif, I can do a fast rug. Do you know, it wasn't until I was drawing this out that it dawned on me that this was an egg shape. All of the years I have looked at this rug, never once did I notice that it was an egg.
I wanted to share with you this mornings devotional message I got. In fact, it made me laugh, to know that the Lord knows me so well.
" (Kim)...Your Father knows what things you need before you ever ask Him.
Fret not thyself...
Sit still my daughter, wait...
"Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things,
...Oh you of little faith, why did you doubt? When ever I am afraid, I will trust in you---delight yourself in the Lord.
I am happy that I can live in such times as these. Just because spring is around the corner, the trees are beginning to bloom. Rain is in the forecast. I can look back through the years in my life and see how those things that were so terrifying, turned out to be really good. It is work though, to keep my mind quiet and not play my favorite pass time, " The What If Game. "
I really need need to weld the hula hoe to my hands for awhile. I need to be a full time farm girl and not a hooker girl.
Have a delightful day,
