Hope everyone is having a good Sunday.  Mine was spent making
slow cooker roast beef tacos - mmm good :), a little stitching on
a sampler started long ago, checking on the blogs I follow and
just staying cool inside.....

My last blog showed pics of two projects I had completed.  One was my design and
the other (I thought) was a Bird in Hand Primitive freebie......
Well, it appears I was mistaken.  I knew I had downloaded
many of Bird in Hands freebies, but I forgot that I
had also downloaded a few of Primitive Betty's.  The sweet crow 
design is from Primitive Betty's as well as the peacock
I plan to start this coming week ........ 
Thanks, Robin for bringing that to my attention.   

Have a great evening,

Two New Completions

Hi Everyone - What a simply gorgeous day it is here in western PA....
absolutely perfect.  A perfect day for sitting outside
and doing something that you love to do....
like hooking, which is what I plan to do when I finish
this posting.

Here is the completed heart name yet.....
When our hooking group met last week, the consensus was for tongues.....
and I am so pleased with the result. 

Also, I downloaded some Bird in Hand Primitives freebies.....
I just love her designs.  They are primitive yet with
a sweetness that I so enjoy.  Here is my finished piece......

How cute is he?  For me it can take quite a bit of time when
coming up with a new design......  It was such a treat
to just hook this oh sooo cute design.  All in all, I think it only
took about 6-7 hours of hooking.  It isn't very big, but
I was able to use some scrap wool I had laying
around........  I think I'm going to hook the
Bird in Hand Primitives sweet peacock next.  It reminds me
of the peacocks that you see in so many sampler designs.

Enjoy this wonderful day,
