GOT IT STARTED AT LONG LAST...

Today I did a bit of hooking on my Childhood Memories rug and I'm using #3 cuts with wool that I have on hand right now but I will need to do some dyeing for the snow and skies. The designs are a bit small and might be a bit challenging for me. But for all it's worth, here's is a peek at what I managed to hook this afternoon. I work at the farm so now I don't get much daylight time to hook. At night I have difficulty seeing the true colors. I have to pick them in the daylight.  I've outlined the red coat with dark chocolate brown but it looks  jet black in the photo, I think that I'll have to dye some red with a bit of black to darken the red for outline. I'll see.

I had a pretty good day,  we went to brunch with friends and after we went to church and I puttered around the house not doing much at all except hook a bit.

My daughter Christine is feeling much better and more joyful now, thanks to your prayers and  comforting words and testimonials.  She is still having waves of sorrow but she can manage better.

My blog is rather short this evening but it's all I can think at the moment. Thanks for visiting and have a good night.
