10 minutes you say? Count me in! This challenge is just what I needed to get some of these UFO's completed. Well, at least on their way to completion. Normally I am not one with a lot of rugs started and not completed. Recently I became a care giver. My Mom, whose 78 became ill on Mother's Day this past May. She is living here now, facing heart valve replacement soon and a difficult cataract removal after that. I am thinking now that with winter approaching she may be a winter resident here. Life changes with the blink of an eye you see. I faced many challenges these past few months with her in the hospital for a month and a nursing home stay for a month. Countless Dr's appointments now and medications, eyedrops, trips to the coumadin clinic, etc. etc. Rug hooking has always been a therapy for me of sorts. Needless to say, I need some now. The above photo is a quick snap of some coasters that I started right before Mom got sick. Actually I was thinking of giving them to her for Mother's day. If I get them finished now I may still get the opportunity. So 10 minute challenge here I come. See if you can stop me now!
