Where does all the time go?
If you are like me you are ready for winter to be over! I am ready for some warmer weather...so leaving on a trip on Wednesday to soak up some sun.
I have many projects on my plate, including some hooking for a change. I finished Sarah's wedding rug except for the binding. The blue and yellow are the wedding colors.
I bought my Mother of the bride dress on Etsy---very brave---it is a vintage dress (new old stock) from The Teal Door. Fawn was wonderful to deal with and I love the dress. It is embroidered silk and the fabric is just beautiful. I love the wist detail---it needs to be pressed and accessorized but here is is.
The last time I was at my hairdresser I was feeling very washed out so asked for a dark brown red color---only semi permanent in case I didn't like it, but I think I like it for a change.
I have also been hooking Floral Fantasy, a Primco pattern designed by Gail Hill. I am hooking it in mostly 8.5 cut. I am removing the cherries, buds or whatever you want to call them. I tried one single one and might leave it but I added a leaf and made a couple of others larger.
Here is close up of the flowers---I like the simplicity of the pattern and the mix of shades and textures of the reds and greens.
I am training for another half marathon in April so I am hoping it warms up soon Last Sunday was a nice day and I went for a bike ride on the trail and took a nasty spill...got a major bruise on my left hip butt---seriously black and blue but lucky it was not worse. I am going to run today no matter what---it is a bit warmer but very windy. Waiting for it to get light---woke up at 2 and finally gave up at 3 and got up... :(
Today is my birthday---the big 64---next year I will be ready for Medicare...really??? That doesn't seem possible. Nothing special planned today...but dinner out Saturday night with Kelly and Matt.
I am busy getting ready for Yellow Rose Rug Camp in March as well as the Rock Creek Hook-in---March 8th.
Also starting to prepare for a workshop in Annapolis, Maryland in April. May will take me back to the Wool Sisters in Alabama. And June will have me in Wedding mode!
I also worked on a project that will be in an article in RHM on Monochromatics---the pieces are finished and off to Tammy. I will let you know when it is going to be in the magazine.
This is one of my designs that I did for Kathy in Ohio---the original size for her was 22 by 56---She wanted it called "In Bloom"---I have resized the pattern as well---this one is 16 by 42---and is being hooked by Kate. Another student, Betty, is doing it in a small size 11 by 28 and another is doing it in the large size---will post a picture of the larger one soon. It is almost done! I need to check with Kathy to see how hers is coming along.
Well that is it for today. Have a good one!
