Busy Day

Hope everyone is having a great day.  Isn't it interesting that
when it is winter we can't wait for warmer weather......
Being as this is the hottest summer I can remember I am
so very ready for cooler weather.......

Anyway back to a more interesting topic - Wool.  I'm planning
some dyeing in the near know ... some
luscious fall shades (I'm already feeling cooler).  So
I was busy picking wool for the dye pot and then the
fun starts.....picking the colors.  I feel like
a little girl getting that much anticipated NEW box of crayons on
Christmas morning. I know you all know what I'm talking about,
don't pretend you don't. 

Also, the twins and I would like to hook the Need'l Love Turkey for
this fall and so I'm looking for the perfect fall shades.  Also, later today
I will be listing my sweet peacock hooked mat.  It is a Primitive Betty freebie, and I
almost hope it won't sell.  Oh well, I can always make another.  It worked up in not
time at all.
How sweet is that?  It was a joy to hook.

Tummy is growling, so I best take care of that.....

Wherever you are have a great day.  Be back soon......

Happy Birthday USA

Hope you all have something special planned for
tomorrow.   It will be a quiet day for

Let me bring you up to date.  The Colonial Days Festival in
Volant was a success.  We met so many nice ladies....
some very interested in learning to hook.  It was
a beautiful but  very, very hot...

The week before the show I discovered that my camera was lost
somewhere in my house......  Does that ever happen to any of you?  It
seems to happen to me a lot.  I have looked everywhere and in
the process getting some long overdue cleaning done......still - NO CAMERA.

Haven't done any hooking since the show either, but did do a
little bit of stitching on a sampler I have been working
on for quite a while and might just work on again tomorrow.

Hope you all have a terrific 4th....don't eat too much and
stay safe if you are on the roads.
