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....

  1. Afternoon Cathy, feel bad for your aches and pains, I know what you mean. Love the sweet design, Happy Hooking, Francine.

  2. I haven't picked up a hook in awhile I hope to soon.
    It looks great so far.

  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.

  5. Looks pretty wonderful to me! Can't wait to see the finished product.

  6. It's going to be a charmer!

  11. What size are you hooking this in. Love the colors.

  12. Cathy, I really like your new design...can't wait to see the finished rug!

    Hope your aches and pains go away soon!

  13. Sounds like the perfect day to stay in and hook! I think we have storms coming this afternoon... OLM

  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!
