Tuesday to-do's...

Good Afternoon...
Hope you are having a good day!
I've gotten a few things knocked off my to-do list...
An adaptation of my Primitive Medallions is finished and on it's way to it's new home...

* ~ * Thanks so much Jackie * ~ *

Everything is pretty much unpacked from last Saturday's Hook-in!
Sorry no pictures...I can't believe I forgot to take pictures:(
I just listed the remaining needle punched pins in my Etsy store
I'll be making a bunch more for Shepherd's Harvest Festival which is coming up in May.

We are finally above the 50 degree mark and the sun feels wonderful!
Spring will fly by with much to do...
Nick graduates in June...
and is preparing to head off to Iowa State in the Fall.

Hope the suns is shining on you ~L

Snow...

it would be beautiful...
if it were not the 24th of March.

Winter Weary...that is what I call it.
Tho' it is not uncommon here on the Northern Prairie to have Spring Snow
....this year...it seems there is no end.

I miss my flip-flops...
and open windows
.

So...today I'm tidying the studio...
trying not to dwell on the weather
I'm nearing the end of this beast of a rug...
it will remain nameless...
and so will the designer...
it was so poorly drawn that it will probably never lay straight. I tried to fix it before I started hooking it many years ago.
I finally added a WIDE border that somewhat detracts from the obviously NOT straight original design.
I'm hooking with scraps from various projects...it will be okay...and a great...floor-worthy rug!
Have a wonderful Monday ~L

March...

Finally temperatures ABOVE Zero... thinking this MUST be a sign that Spring will come;)


After several requests, I was able to come up with a few more kits for this year's annual rug project
Primitive Medallions
...I'm humbled...and astounded by the overwhelming interest in this project...
THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has joined in...sent kind messages...left comments...I so appreciate your support and encouragement!

I spent yesterday in the dye pots...
today I'm out of the studio...taking Mom & Dad to doctor appointments...
