GREEN MOUNTAIN HERE WE COME…

Tomorrow morning I leave bright and EARLY for Vermont. Cannot believe the time is here already… I am so excited to be finally getting to my Porky rug which my friend Diane who was here for the weekend named “Porkzilla”. We also gave her a somewhat more French moniker – “Porque-zilla”. She will be wild – well I hope! One never knows how a rug will turn out – some are easier than others and just seem to flow off the hook and others hmmmmmmmmm – not! As I just said to my friend Anne – if the porky does not work out she will get a hair (or quill) cut and become a beaver!

While Di was here we hooked on the dock alllll day Saturday – it was WONDERFUL. Lovely breeze kept us nice and cool under the canopy (one of the smartest buys we ever made) and we worked hard. I decided it was time to finish hooking something that had been hanging around for quite a while – one of those NOTs – and it is finished!  For some reason it just was not flowing but it all seemed to come together on Saturday and is done and bound – yeah. Now I just need to tackle a few other unfinished projects when I get home again. I always feel soooooo good when a piece is finished – well don’t we all!…

This is an adaptation of one of the Karla Gerard patterns I sell – Sheep Farm.  I didn’t want to do the full pattern and decided one half was enough – Gord says it looks quite Tuscan – yup that blue sky!…This is available as a pattern or kit…


Yesterday 3 lovely ladies came from Ottawa to put their purses together. We had a fun and lively day and purses were finished by the time they left…
