I hope you are having a great week...the weather is delightful here in the North Country...I'm a bit worried about the trees and gardens with the lack of snow cover and moisture...but these balmy temperatures are easy to love!
Early Work Mercantile...another needle book...Hearts & Flowers
I hope you'll stop by to visit all the talented artists at EWM!
Tomorrow evening at 7 pm is the update at The 1800 House...this is the first month that my finished mats will be offered there...many thanks Karen for inviting me!
Just a bit of hooking left on Old Chalk Deer...I'll be back soon with pics and an update on this wonderful design...
Til then ~ be well ~L

It's a cool grey Sunday afternoon here in the North Country...but I'm snuggly warm under this growing rug...enjoying some quiet time hooking.
It will be another busy week with physical therapy appointments for Dad and the day to day stuff here at the studio...a huge wool order is due early this week...
Hope you are having a peace-filled Sunday and wishing you a wonderful week ~L

Yet..I'm happy...I'm right where I need to be!
I joke that I've needed to work like a "well oiled machine"...but actually it has been good for me. My parents are needing more help these days and I'm so glad to still live close and be there for them...

I'm confused...things seem to be out of sorts...it's been in the mid-teens to low twenties the last few days...we've had a bit of ice and a few snow flakes...it's mostly brown...and oh so dry...This is January?...in Minnesota??? To top it off we are still on Christmas break...oops...that is what we used to call it...excuse me...winter break. Yes, the kids were in school right up to Christmas eve...so they get two full weeks after Christmas off. Husband and son used to be on the same break schedule...not this year...hubby has had to head back to work already.
I have several rugs in progress...a couple commissions and the start of the 2012 annual rug! If you are interested in this year's project rug...Grandma's Garden...I just put a clickable link on the left sidebar...it will take you to the website page that has all the information. I'll post updates of the rug as it progresses...right now it's slow going...I'm taking my parents to doctor appointments several times a week...that's a whole other story!
So for now here is my watercolor sketch...
