Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It was beautiful yesterday and I enjoyed it! Now I am really in the mood to do things outside.
 Last week I went to the hookin in Millersburg and Heavens to Betsy was there. Betsy and her hubby were so nice and of course I bought lots of wool. I had to leave early, so I missed Betsy showing how to add a braid to your rugs. Rhonda Thomas kindly showed me how to do the technique Betsy showed everyone. So here it is, love the look. Also, the design is by Tonya-Madhen Primitives. I've always wanted to make a big braided rug and I might just try it. Happy Sunday!

I think spring has finally arrived. I know some of my blog friends have been getting snow, hope we don't get anymore. I mowed for the first time this spring and felt so good to get outside. Spring is my favorite time of the year! I did finish this Robin rug, took me awhile. It has lots of detail to hook, I used 3 different sizes of strips. The rug is a Country Stitches design. Have a great evening!

Folk Art Rug

It's storming here and my dogs are scared of thunder and lightning. 
They all want sit on my lap. 
The spring flowers are popping up.
I have been waiting for it to rain so I can put grass seed out. 
Don't want to hit by lightning, I am going to wait!!
This is my latest hooked rug, it is a design by Vermont Folk Rug pattern. 
I know I sound like a broken record but, I can't believe it's Wednesday!
Have a great day!

I could get used to this.
Today I finished this rug,  I really like the way it turned out.
It looks like an old tavern sign.
It is a pattern from Lori Brechlin-Notforgotten Farm.
Have a great weekend!
Hope the sun is shining where you are!

 We had a very nice Easter. My sister and her family were on vacation, so we missed them.
We had fun at my mom and dad's, it was fun to have a little one. 
It did rain here.
Have you heard the saying, if rains on Easter Sunday
it rains for the next 7 Sundays?
Awwww Joy!
 You can feel spring in the air.
I am just starting to think about flowers.

 I bought more of this fencing. 
 I love red geraniums!
 I will have to plant more color, thought this was too 
bland. I love hot pinks and reds!
Hope you don't get too many April fool's jokes!
Have a great day!
