 Tommy cut our tree down here on our farm.
I love have planted Blue Spruces
every year so we can cut our own.
I love my steer!

Post Thanksgiving

We had a nice Thanksgiving at my mom and dad's
house. I missed Lindsay, it helps that
we have IPhones and can facetime.
My son, Tommy cut down our Christmas
tree and put in the stand.
It is so nice to go outside and cut one down.
Last week I ordered this pattern from
Maria Barton- Star Rug Company.
It was fun to hook and you can finish it quick.
Hope everyone has a great week!

Thanksgiving Eve

I love the holidays!
We are spending Thanksgiving with my
mom and dad.
The bad news is Lindsay
can't come home.
This is the first time ever she has not
been with us.
She is having 2 of her co-workers over for dinner.
It is so nice that she had lots of
invitations from different 
people to come to their houses.
This is the latest rug I've hooked.
It's a design from Notforgotten Farms.
Have a wonderful evening!

Not Ready For Snow

 Many states are getting snow!!
It can wait to arrive here. LOL!
I am seeing Christmas commercials
and Christmas music.
My sister inlaw has always worked
in retail stores. She does NOT like
Christmas music.
So, when I hear it I laugh to myself because
Barb says she gets sick of it.
I hooked another rug from Bird
in the Hand.

This is Monte who is a Golden Doodle.
He is my daughter's dog.
This is the progression from puppy till now.
Monte is so sweet!!
Lindsay has been teaching him commands
in Spanish. It seems he listens better in Spanish,
than English.
Have a great evening!

in my flower beds and yard.
Stay warm!!

They moved voting to a church.
It used to be at the township garage,just down the road.
I am glad for the people that work the polls,
it is more comfortable for them.

I was hoping they would blow away,
they haven't. So, I have been
using the leaf blower.
This is the latest rug I've hooked.
It's a Notforgotten Farm design.
 I have been dog sitting for my son and DIL.
They return tonight.

Maddie and Gus love playing in the leafs.

 Today is officially the first 
day of first of fall.
Time to get out the fall decorations!
 This is the latest rug I've hooked. It
is a design by Country Stitches.
Trapped LOL!
We feed the farm cats 
and Maddie likes to eat the cat food.
So we put this fireplace screen in front of the 
cat food so she couldn't get to it.
Well, I went outside and she got the food.
Caught in the trap! LOL!
Have a great day!!

Fall Rugs

 Yesterday I went to Quail Crest Herb Fair.
I got there early and glad I did because it was pouring
down rain when I left.
I was soaked but, it was worth it.
Found some treasures!!
I hooked both rugs using one of my favorite
orange and black plaids.
The sad thing is, I can't buy the wool anymore.
Both rugs are patterns from Lori Brechlin- Notforgotten Farms.
The weather is nice here, everything is about 2 weeks behind.
Usually corn silage is being harvested but, late this year.
Which is fine with me!!
We need a couple more weeks for our crops to be ready,
planted late this spring.
Happy Sunday!
