Happy tuesday! I thought you might enjoy seeing what I'm hooking right now... a Primitive Gobbler design by Anne Nichols which can be found in the Falloween Threads book by Needl'love. I have wanted to hook this pattern for years!!! Well with a little prodding by my friend Lisa... she's hooking this one right now too... I decided what the heck, it's now or never!
It sure is a fun design to hook and color plan. I chose a neutral background for this one and you can see some of the wools I'm using in the photo below.
Lisa is hooking hers with a dark background... now I want a dark background one too! LOL!
We egg one another on... or should I say we "encourage" one another!
We've been sharing photos of our progress on our smart phones. I thought I was smart when I hooked til midnight last night and couldn't wait to show Lisa via text how much I had hooked. Well that fast little Lisa sent me a text at 8:00 this morning with a photo of hers mostly hooked! I think she hooks while she sleeps!! LOL!!
The stairway to the basement is coming along nicely too! Dan the carpenter got the wall boards put up and I am loving it! I want to hang something ( a rug maybe ?) but I kind of enjoy the nice clean look of a new empty wall for a change! Will probably wait until the steps and carpet are done now.
I thank you all for your kind words on my last post! I have been reading your blogs and not commenting so much as I'd like to. I feel guilty as I know how much I enjoy reading your comments on my own blog. Hopefully I can turn over a new leaf!
