Happy New Year everyone. I hope your Christmas was great and that you got all those handmade gifts finished, all the cookies baked and all the gifts wrapped. Well, I got the cookies baked and the gifts wrapped, but those handmade gifts that I planned on making--Nope, not a one. I'll be sure and get them done next year :) RIGHT!! Here is a picture of my seven wonderful grandchildren that was taken on Christmas Eve. What a blessing they are. I will have a picture of the rug I just finished in a few days. I want to get it steamed first. Here is a drawing of my next project. It is a rough drawing and still needs work done like decorating the eggs which will be shaped a little different. Updates will be coming. Take care and have a good evening,
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.
