Well a week has gone by with no post – can I blame it on my many accidents in the last week? Probably not since I don’t type with my feet – although I do have friends who say my usual emails are rather messy – no capitals or punctuation or breaks. I say they are just a reflection of my mind – scattered! Last week though I wrapped my baby toe around the leg of a table in my bedroom and I think it is broken. The skin is puffy and a was a lovely shade of purple and green and it HURTS! Then yesterday I had a battle with the hose of the vacuum cleaner and I lost – fell onto the floor on my bad hip (fell onto a concrete floor last summer and have never really felt right since then) but MY HANDS WERE UP IN THE AIR well protected! So I can still hook, dye and type! Which is a goooood thing since this is our spring Iawah retreat weekend. No cooking but lots of looking and hooking. I am so excited to see what everyone has been working on and will take lots of pix to share next week. Our challenge this year was Canadiana and although I have a bad sketch on paper I have no piece to enter in the challenge. I will be working on the celtic which is coming along rather nicely. I finished the borders on the weekend and yesterday and Monday I hooked the first “celtic knot duck”. In looking at the picture I took I see there are definitely things that need tweaking but so far I am pretty happy with it…


Last week a few friends – Ruby, Sandra and Terry –  dropped by and brought rugs for show and tell – these ladies are veryyyyy prolific and there were more rugs but I did not get pix of all of them…

    Best take care of yourself so that you can keep on the go!!!  I hope the hip and toe are on the same side so that its a little less trouble!!!


    • ohhhh nope different sides – but you know what – I will survive!!!! I come from a family of klutzes My dad is missing most of his digits, has holes in the top of his head, fell through the roof last summer and broke his knees!!!! Guess I come by it honestly :-))))

  3. These rugs are magnificent. I truly love the Celtic Rug because it really tugs at my Celtic Spirit. I also laughed out loud at the three cats. Is this a pattern that is available?

    See you on the weekend. Take care of that hip and toe. Sadly nothing can be done for a broken toe except analgesic therapy. I did the same doggone thing to my to recently.
