When Mommy gets Busy

Have you ever noticed that when mommy gets busy the children will act up?

As the story goes, as soon as the phone rings the kids want something. Well when mommy gets too busy in this house puppy gets busy too. Before Christmas I was doing a project working day and night and not getting the daily doggie walks in on a timely schedule, so Libby (my dog) took matters into her own paws. Each day she would dig at the corner off my rug!!! now this is just something old and with recycled worms but either way I'll have to fix it.

Normally, she does not bother with my rugs around the house other than to lay on them, but this one took a beating in the photo above.

This is the little angel herself after her trip to the groomer today, I had her hair nicely up in a clip and she quickly pulled that out.

Below is the wool I used to start my next project, 4 recycled colors for the wording and now I'm starting the flowers.

Happy New Year everyone, as I watch the weather channel I can see this will be a stay in type of night.

Enjoying Christmas, maybe too much

I just love Christmas with all the food and visiting, I have not been on-line or even reading Blogs on purpose, Why? because my job entails hours and hours of being attached to computers and the best mental therapy for me is not being in the virtual world for a few days.

I was visiting today with my Grandpa , several Aunts, my Uncle and the new baby of the family. I was thinking "is this how the rich people live?" not a worry in the world, no alarm clock to wake up to, getting all prettied up and roaming around visiting and socializing.

Cinnamon Ornaments and waiting for Santa

Found another one of Nancy's Christmas projects in the attic (she's a busy hooker) size is approx. 24 X 20 framed.

Just finished some old fashion Cinnamon Oraments as special little Christmas Gifts from the kids, they are cooling and drying on the stove now. I brought out the ingredients for the kids one by one.... I said "OK start with the 1 Cup Cinnamon and then 1 Cup Apple Sauce and the third ingredient is THE GLUE" - 1/4 Cup" ..... so don't eat them or we'll be in the Hospital for the evening!

Santa is coming to Town, way too soon

Santa is coming in a week from today, I'm starting to panick now and I'm not sure how I got myself so far behind with my shopping and decorating but I guess I'll have to make the best of it. Tomorrow will be my first shopping day and I hope to have the tree up by Sunday.

Thought I'd share this rug hooked piece that my mother hooked I few years back, the second photo shows the mounting board uses to display Old World Santa. This Santa pattern was a design from a class that she took from Edie Cole who is a local rug hooking teacher.

Tis' the Season to be Jolly .........

Christmas Sampler for the Season

I can not take any credit for this one, this is 100% Nancy's rug 'designed and hooked'. This Christmas Sampler with a variety of cute little Festive images including a Stocking by the Chimney, Candle Sticks, snow covered Mailbox, Church with stained glass window and a Christmas bell.

The photo does not show the sparkly white snow uses on top of the mailbox and along the church roof. The background as a very classy dark green but appears black in this photo. Have a Good Weekend everyone.

Stressful week

Found this picture and I think it suits me this week. I have not hooked anything or dyed any wool for several days. Not sure what type of therapy is necessary at this point, if I can make it till Friday afternoon I'll be happy.

Cars, Trucks and Automobiles

A special gift for a special little boy this year. MOMZ WOOL helped to design this rug pattern for one of our Happy Hooker friends. I like the background color and I think it will be perfect for a little boy's room.

Christmas is coming, and coming too fast for my liking. I have only a few small things bought to-date maybe this weekend I'll get in the mood, it's all about work the more you can do the more they drop on you. As you can see from my blogging I have not had time to blog or hook all week myself.

But it's Friday and there is a Christmas party tonight and I did luck into a cute little party dress at the local second hand shop 'Frenchies'.
