It's a warm but dreary, rainy day here, just perfect for hooking. Don't you agree? The good news is that Sophie Snowberry is done and listed for sale on my website http://www.wethreerughooking.com/. Here is the completed pic. Well almost completed. Patty (dear little sis) is making her into a pillow. She would be equally adorable as a wallhanging. Hmm, I might have to do one myself.
We had the championship midget football games this past Saturday. Lucas' (my 14-year-old grandson) varsity team won for the sixth straight year. Logan's (my 11-year-old grandson) JV team unfortunately lost. Both boys played great and I am very proud of them. My son hasn't sent pics yet, but when he does I will post them. Never want to miss an opportunity for brag about my grandchildren. Tonight my two youngest grandsons play deck hockey, Landon is 5 and the youngest brother of Lucas and Logan, and Brady also 5 years old. They are just too cute to watch. What a blessing!
I learned rug hooking in 1999 and taught my two daughters Lisa and Missy. We Three Rug Hooking was born. I really enjoyed working with my girls. That came to an end on the evening of March 4,2005 when Missy went into premature labor and after an emergency C-section gave birth to little Brady. At 2 lbs 13 oz Brady had a rough time. He spent 4-1/2 months in various hospitals. He underwent 4 surgeries on his little head, struggled with bad lungs, had meningitis and pneumonia. It was a very hard time. Brady's doctors believed he would have developmental problems and lung problems, but our God had different plans for Brady. At age 4 he is a perfect "little" dynamo, as active as any 4-year-old. About that same time Missy found out that her husband, Lane, had a recurrence of his malignant brain tumor. In September of 2008 Lane lost his brave battle and went home to be with the Lord. As for Lisa, she stayed with the business until about 2006 when she divorced and with two daughters had to also get a "real job." She is now happily remarried and working part time. She helps me with my rug binding chores. I also do medical transcription at home part time.
