A Quick Post

I just thought I would stop in for a quick post. My feverfew is blooming. Isn't it lovely those little white daisies against the green. They make me so happy. They do look pretty this time of year. When I have a headache I do try to work around them and brush against them. Other that that, I think they stink.

I managed to finish two rugs this week. Both are patterns from Cathy at Orange Sink. She is one of my very, very favorite rug designers. When I hook her patterns, I forget what ever problem I may be having and just get caught up in her patterns.

This first rug is called Long May She Wave.

The second rug my very favorite, The 1820 Sunflower.

Both are going to stay home with me I think. Not my original plan. I was going to put them in my Etsy shop, but for some reason I just can't seem to make my rugs square. I can't figure out what on earth I am doing. Sometimes when Sasha runs in that pasture she runs sideways. It has something to do with her brain. I think I am having the same malady. I can't seem to make my rugs square. I measured these too. It has to be the problem with me.

I also wanted to give you a heads up. My dear friend Kim at Millie's Mats has started a new blog  Glass Half Full. She never fails to make me laugh and be entertained. If you are looking for a blog to follow along. I promise you will be glad you started following her in blogland. If not for her, I don't know if I would still be hooking rugs or blogging. She really was and is and  continues to be an inspiration for me.

I did a little painting and sanding today on a table I am going to use here in my office. I hope I can show you it soon. It has been a while since I did any thing like this. Ron let me use this sander he has. I had no idea he had this nifty piece of machinery. I was looking around for something else to sand when I was done. Hopefully now that it is warmer I will be playing in the woodpile again.

Have a delightful weekend,

  1. You have a birthday coming!
    I love the rugs. Well done, Kim!
    We have snow. Weep.

  2. Your not the only one who has the malady, I find myself going outside the line often. I love Orange Sink designs also, wish I lived closer to visit her shop.

  3. We are so much alike. I want to hook rugs to sell but sometimes I just hate to part with them. You did a great job on those. I love Cathy's designs too.
    My next home project is to find a fun old table to use as a desk.

  4. Oh my gosh that has been my problem!!!
    All day I tried to square up my cheri Payne little quilt.
    I ended ripping it apart and starting it again.lol
    I too have a problem with my rugs being perfect.
    Your not the only one. Hugs cheri

  5. Such a pretty little flower, I see them here often.
    I love Cathy's designs.

  6. They are so pretty but I don't think I've been around them.
    I love those rugs and have no idea why they aren't square!
    Hope you enjoy your weekend!

  7. You know, I never notice when your rugs aren't square. :-)

  8. I am really glad to read it and being able to share my thoughts on it. I want to use this opportunity to say that I really love this blog. It is an amazing resource of information for my working. Thank you so much. http://awriter.org/aussiewritercom/

  9. Great rug finishes. I'm glad you are keeping them.
    Kim does make us laugh, doesn't she? I just love that woman.
    Happy Sunday.
    Hugs :)
