What a beautiful fall day this is going to be. I hope it is a beautiful day wherever you are. My day is going to consist of dyeing some wool and cutting some grass, which I don't mind doing when the day is sunny.
Today I'm also going to introduce you to our newest design Sophie Snowberry. My sister Patty and I worked on this together. She really wanted a Christmas/winter pillow to hook, and this is what we came up with. She plans on a primitive red background. Sophie's dress will have a black collar, black stripes, and black buttons. The dress will be a soft gold. I will add more pics as she progresses. I'm sure that Patty's granddaughter Sophie will love it.
I'm so anxious to begin work on the new website. It will have a new look and more options and new items. I will keep you posted. I hope to begin my part sometime next week. The original We Three website is still available.
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.
