First and foremost I need to THANK-YOU dear blogging friends for all your wonderful praises and comments on our Open House! You are such loving and positive ladies and how I wish you all could have been here..... but it sounds like I would have had to double our supply of wool before you came !! LOL!
I will try and keep you updated on our progress here and I welcome all of your thoughts, praise, and cheering on what you think of it all!! That's what makes blogging so much fun to hear your "voices" from this community that spans miles and miles! Thank goodness for electricity which makes that all possible!
We have gained a much greater appreciation for that energy flowing so abundantly around us after watching our comrades on the east coast endure life without it for so long. Have you watched the show on T.V. called Revolution? It depicts a sitcom writer's views of what life would perhaps become were the grid suddenly to become only a memory! Heaven forbid..... I've only seen bits and pieces of the show and that was enough for me! Too depressing!
Last night I burned my share of electricity by staying up waaaaaay past the hour when most decent people are sleeping! It's something I do on occasion as you know if you've followed my blog from it's early days. The one thing that can keep me up til the wee hours is starting a new rug!
The pattern is called French Urn by Maggie Bonanomi. It can be found in the Need'l Love French Market Book. When I first saw the pattern I thought the urn would be fun to do in blue! The blue I'm using is the same one I dyed for my "America" rug that I designed. As I progress I will show you the line-up of wools and a photo.
As most people this week are preparing for Thanksgiving and thinking of getting decorations for Christmas put up..... I'm hoping I can take a little break from preparing much of anything except running some wool through the cutter! LOL!! I've done enough preparing this past couple of months to last through the end of the year and then some!
My Mom is invited to my brother's for Thanksgiving so I think I'm off the hook for cooking anything big. Dave likes to hunt that day and that's fine by me. I think I'll throw some bar-b-que ribs in the oven and let them cook all day while I hook all day!! We'll have mashed potatoes and butter! Maybe some green beens and a salad.
Let me wish you all the most blessed Thanksgiving. I have blessings so many that I need a few days to sit and really contemplate each one! As my hook softly guides the wool through the linen my mind is at peace. My heart is satisfied and grateful. No better Thanksgiving than that!
