Pumpkin Crow Rug

We have been watching the news coverage of Hurricane Irene.

What a huge storm!

Wouldn't it be great if we could send

some water to Oklahoma and Texas.

We don't hear much on the news

about the severe drought they are having.

Hope it gets out of here.

This is the first fall rug I've hooked.

It is a Lori Brechlin design.

We got off our last cutting of hay for the year.

The corn and soybeans have a few more weeks yet before

Tom will harvest them.

I have been busy in my gardens

and ripping out a pond.

My tomatoes are just starting to ripen,

I planted them late.

Have a good week!!

This summer is flying by!

There is so much that I want to do.

I have a long list of things I want to get painted.

Alot of my perennials are done but,

the annuals are just getting going.

I planted late this year because of all the rain.

Didn't get to Sauder this year but,

I'm getting to see alot of pictures on blogs.

I just bought fence,

I've got 4 up and I have 7 more fence pieces.

I've been seeing lots of butterflies.

I'm going to use these plants
in fairy gardens.
Hope you have a great weekend!

1875 Ship Rug


This is one of my favorite rugs

I've hooked.

The pattern is by Pine Island Primitives.

This is the smaller one 40"x 19" mine

ended up 38" x 19".

I'm happy with the way it turned out.

It's on Ebay.

Have a great week!

Puffy White Clouds and Blue Skies

I love days like today!

Blue skies and puffy clouds.

It doesn't get any better.

I've worked outside in my yard

for the past couple days.

My daughter took this picture of our silos

from the road.

Lindsay took this picture of our grain bins.

Tommorrow I'm going to Columbus to help

my son move into his new apartment.

He has been living in my daughter's apartment,

since she is home for the summer.

Tommy was feeling a little weird sleeping in a pink bedroom. LOL!!

Then we are going out to eat with my mom and dad

at Sky Way East. The food is really good.

Enjoy the weather, hopefully it's good

where you live!!
