Sandy has nearly finished this Sharon Smith design - mostly just the water to hook and then it'll be done.
Cora Lee getting all her umbrella ladies hooked and then she'll get started on the fun background.
Jeanette's poppies are 'popping' off that black background!
Sharon is working on a gorgeous design she found on the cover of an antique prayer book. The colors are exactly 'her' and I look forward to watching this progress.
Tonia was hooking her own design - I can't decide if I like the birds with their crowns, or the background treatment, or the border the best. She's got it completely finished now and has shared wonderful pictures of details of the rug on her blog BaaRamEweDesigns if you'd like to go look.
Sadly, three of the gals left before I thought to grab my camera, so I don't have pictures of the rugs that Kim, Angela and Leisa were working on. Sorry 'bout that! I have finished my star runner and will be taking it with me to my Salt Lake rug group tomorrow to whip the edges with yarn - then I'll share photos - soon!
Sometimes we take all our modern conveniences for granted - until we have to go without - and that's what happened to me recently. I live in a small city and our water supply was compromised so that it was not safe to drink or use. The city did a fabulous job of keeping everyone informed with daily automated phone calls and everything is back to normal now. Drinking bottled water was an easy solution, but not quite as easy as turning on the kitchen faucet, huh?
I've been wanting to try some Greek yogurt, but have no idea of which ones are good. Can any of you give me your recommendations for a brand to buy?
I used to enjoy reading a blog called Fancy Wool Flowers, but every time I try to pull it up now I get something in a foreign language - almost like it's been hijacked by someone. I wonder if Nan knows about this and if there's anything she can do to get control of it back. There are actually a couple on my blog list that have had the same thing happen - very strange.
And one last thing - - - after my last post about my sunflower quilts, I unearthed one more that I have. This one has Dresden plates for the four flowers - embellished with 3D leaves on a vine and a fun little bumblebee and crow. I'll leave you with this.....
