Bee Skeps!

Last night the low was 10
and we have snow on the ground.
We were planning on getting the
ground ready for our Pumpkin patch.
That is not happening.
I bought these Horn Books in Berlin
last week.
Hooked bee skeps to put on them.
Have a great Saturday!!

Pineapple Rug

 I have had a few requests for pineapple rugs.
This is  my adaption of Bird In the Hand Primitives pattern.
I am hoping for sunny skies but, I think'
it is supposed to snow.
This is why I don't like to take
a cruise or go to Florida in March.
It is an emotional roller coaster for me.
When you come back it is
usually cold and grey.
So I will keep busy!!

Wool Rug

 I have become very appreciative
of photographers.
It is an art.
I really love looking at everyone's pictures
on blogs.
There are a lot of talented people out there.
Everyone that I talk to about photography classes
say they just end up setting their camera on auto.
So, I will keep practicing.
I love my camera though,
It is one of the best things I've bought.
It is crazy.
 These days we have to be chefs,
IT people, Interior Decorators,
Photographers, Landscapers, etc.
It is a lot different than when I was younger! WHEW!

Farm Rug

 I am patiently waiting for nice weather.
I have spring fever.
Today I even bought mulch!!
This is my latest rug, it reminds
me of Iowa.
We didn't see sheep last week, just
cattle. Lots of farms.
This pattern is from Star Rug Company- Maria Barton.
These little spring flowers are
popping up.
They are struggling.
Have a great Monday!

It's Spring

It says on the calendar that it's spring.
I hope it gets a little warmer.
Last Sunday Tom and I
took the dogs and headed to Iowa.
We stayed at Lindsay's.
It was 85 one day!!
Love this picture!
Monte in the front and Maddie in the back.
Have a great weekend!

34 Years??

 Today is our 34th wedding anniversary.
My kids reminded me it is Pi day.
I can't believe that 34 years have went by.
The day that we got married was just like today, dreary.
 I didn't care because
everything was inside.
Here's to another 34 years!!

Spring Flowers

We are seeing more signs,
I am so happy about that.
I hooked this little rug, I've
hooked this before.
It is a design by Susan Hart.
When these little flowers bloom in our yard,
spring is here!!
They are so cute!
Have a great evening!

Spring Ahead

It is March and so close to spring!!
I went outside and felt
warmer than it has in a long time.
The time change will take a little
getting used to.
There are a lot of birds singing.
This rug is another antique adaption.
Love old signs.
Enjoy your Sunday!

Wool Rug

It is slushy and wet outside.
All of it will probably freeze tonight.
It is staying lighter outside,
so that is a good sign.
Today I stayed in and finished this rug.
It's my design of an adaption of an antique sign.
Tomorrow I am getting out and going shopping.
Have a good evening!

Welcome March!!

We are getting closer to spring.
My husband has spotted the Sand Hill Cranes.
That is a very good sign.
Next weekend we spring ahead.
The time change
 always takes me awhile to get used to.
Don't you just love tulips?
I bought these last week.
This is the latest rug I've hooked.
It is a design by With Thy Needle and Thread.
Have a wonderful evening.
