I Had Forgotten....


... how good it feels to hold the hook in my hand.  It's been dare I say..weeks since I've hooked anything.  I've had this little design floating around in my crazy head for a few weeks too. 
At 5:30 a.m. this morning I woke up aching in every joint and bone of my body.  The weather app on my phone said a thunderstorm was approaching and we were in for an all day rain.  I suppose that explains the aches today.  

By 7:00 a.m. I had the design drawn on linen and some of the wool I knew I wanted to use at the ready.
Now who's to say... this could become a pattern I would sell.  It all depends on the final outcome. 
Some designs are like that.... they go from head to hand to heart. 

If you let them....

  3. I love your patterns. Every single one of them. This is a cute one too. I picked up my hook last night for the first time in a long time. It felt so good. I could really understand what you were talking about.
    There is just something so wonderful with hooking and the wool. It makes me so calm. I always enjoy seeing what you have been doing.
    Have a great week Cathy. :)

  4. Your design looks beautiful. Funny how a rainy day can make a person want to design and hook so early in the morning...

    I'm looking forward to seeing your rug finished. I'm certain this design will be a hit also.
    Hugs,

  14. that's awfully pretty, I love the colors.
    aches and pain are no fun, but they seem to run from house to house trying to visit all their neighbors. I wish the ones here would just go home, and stay there!
