TURNING A NEW PAGE.

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE AND I'M SO BLESSED TO HAVE YOU AS BLOGGER FRIENDS. MY LIFE HAS BEEN ENRICHED BY YOUR BEAUTIFUL AND POSITIVE COMMENTS. THANKS YOU ALL.

Because our lives are so filled with busyness everyday an the fact that we have to work early in the morning, our New Year Eve is always low key. We usually sit together with a bowl of chips and some dip and a bottle of good wine and watch a movie . We used to watch the satire show Air Farce on New Year's Eve every year but now the show has been cancelled.  Boo-Hoo-Hoo. It was so funny.



It's time to turn a new page on the calendar to begin a new year and today I just received one of the two Hooking book that I ordered from Amazon .com, with still one more to come.  The Rug Hooker's BIBLE. So, I'll be turning those pages as well.



The envelop was torn open at one end, no doubt with the sheer volume of Christmas mail at this time of year, it's understandable that it got rough treatment. The book was in perfect condition though. The other book I purchased which has been shipped is Hooked Rug Landscapes. I had also ordered Pictorials but it was not available to be shipped to Canada from the seller.  Another time perhaps.

Today I signed in for Sunnie's, Grandmother's Treasure Trunk Creative Challenge on Rug Hooking Daily. The challenge is to design and hook a rug with this theme, within a time frame and it is also subject to a wide array of interpretations. The rug can be any size or shape and it has to have two shades of brown and one or more words in it. It's always fun to see the wide variety of interpretation to this challenge.  Just what we need to chase those hookers blocks away.  Now I'm racking my brain to come up with  a treasure that my grandmother could have had in her treasure trunk.

It's a great way to stretch beyond what we normally would hook. Do you think that I perhaps should have my head examined.  JB
