I finished the hooking part, 
blocked it once from the back 
and am now contemplating the finish.


The back side...

You can see some of the pattern lines, but that changed.
Not sure if I will use it for my sloped foot stool either.  It is extremely primitive...and has somehow grown on me. 
I am pleased with my first hooked rug.
I will do a 'fold forward' finish using black wool yarn.  I had  no particular use for it and I think the wool will suit it perfectly.
Then I will decide what to do with it.

Thank you for stopping by ... Have a beautiful week.

Did I say soon ? ? ?

This is surely Later not Sooner.
I got bogged down after having my Bladder Surgery,
which I have been dealing with for 17 years.  
I was told then that I'd get used to it.
~I am still waiting~
I count my BLESSINGS and should not complain 
as it is not an aggressive form of 
'shut my mouth'.

I just listed this pattern on Etsy
"Spring is Here"   
 the one with the Pussy Willows
 that I so dearly love.  
It is attached to a vintage butter paddle.
Available in both, Instant Downloaded PDF 
and Paper mailed patterns.
 I can see this design displayed on a tall basket full of
Springtime flowers and of course some Pussy Willows. 
I Love it.  
When I find the right basket,  I will punch it again.

If interested, you can Click Here to get to My Etsy Shop.

Glad you came to visit...
It is lunchtime here in So Cal...
and still in my 'P.J.s'. 
Gonna have some lunch first, then head for the shower.

Have a pleasant rest of the day.

Our family gathering...

Fun was had by all...
It was a wonderful buffet style meal 
and we enjoyed the beautiful outdoor weather.
Papa, Kyle, Pam, Jeff, Kylie, 
Cassie and the back of Kohana's head.
 Fur babies all included.
 Like father (Jeff) like son (Kolton) and our oldest grandson Kyle.
Sandy always has fun with family...but,
 she got a little sunburn.
Papa and 'his' Rusty,
our youngest daughter, Pam 
and youngest son, Jeff .
 That's Kolton and big Sis, Kohana
talking about desert...???
 On the right, that's Kylie and our Cassie, 
Jeff's wife and our talented DIL.
I should have gotten a picture of her cup cakes
 made to look like a yummy flower bouquet...
"What was I thinking???
where is my camera when I really need it???"
Ohhhh, HERE IT IS!
Cassie just sent me her picture of this beautiful piece of art...
I am so happy she took this picture...
It was too pretty to eat... 
but we did and was it 'DELISH'
Finally our 14 y.o. 'Deuce' says it all...
Is it time to go, I'm getting tired and need some rest.
He is such a sweet heart.

Hope everyone had a safe and Blessed Easter.
We did.
Peace, Love and Blessings for ALL,
