Where did the summer go

I should say what happened to our fall. It was a busy summer for me. I set up my Etsy shop (link to the left) which took quite a while for me. After all, there are limits to my computer expertise.

The shop will include hooked items and other hand-made needle art items, maybe some wool, etc. There will be OOAK (one-of-a-kind) hooked items designed by me that will not be offered as patterns. They will come signed and dated. There will also be We Three designs that have been hooked and will be for sale, possibly some wool, etc. Hope you can stop and visit some time. My next offering will be the Log Cabin mat pictured above. It measures approximately 9 x 10 and should be on my Etsy later today.

This has been a disappointing fall for us here in western PA. With all the rain I had to keep postponing the new roof I needed, but finally last weekend in the miserable rain a group of amazing men laid my new roof. Who knew you could get so excited about a new roof. It looks great and I am ever so grateful for the wonderful job they did on a nasty rainy day.

I would bet that most of you love fall as much as I do. For me it's that wonderful time of year when the hot days of summer are over and a warm fire, a cup of hot tea and your favorite hooking project make for a special time. Tomorrow one of my best friends and a hooking buddy, Sharon, is having a wonderful fall luncheon for a group of us hookers at her beautiful log home. Can't wait to see everyone and discuss our favorite subject. I hope that wherever you are that you are enjoying a beautiful fall day too.
