It starts with a strong feeling and it happens. I used to be more in tuned when I was a young mother but as time went on I seem to have lost my touch because I'm always in a rush and a bit tense.
Well this morning after work as I picked up the key for the mailbox, I had a strong feeling that April De Conick's wool palette giveaway was in my mailbox. Maybe it's because I was so tired and wasn't in a rush but I would have bet money on it. I had told her that there was no rush as I know that she had a lot to deal with with the flood damage and insurance etc... so I wasn't expecting anything for a while, that is until today. Sure enough when I turned the key there was another set of keys for the package compartment. And there it was. I smiled all the way home.
Thanks April, your wool is so very nice and I'm so pleased with it. I love the color palette you sent me and the green little swatch carrier with my name on it, is so cute. My husband said, Oh look! Your name's on it" I proudly replied, "yes dear, it was made especially for me by April, the lady I was reading to you about".

I went to bed around 11ish and I woke up at 1:30 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep so I got up at 3:00 a.m. and got dress, made my bed and came down to hook. My husband woke up at 4:00 so I cooked some bacon and eggs, toast and coffee for a change. I went back to hooking and here's the progress.
I did my chores and had plenty of time to be on time. That's what grandmothers are for...
I added a ribbon free hand and wasn't sure if it would work because the design was close to the edge but so far it frames the little designs OK. I used a large pleated wool skirt that I found at Value village last week. I knew that I needed enough fabric to finish the whole ribbon. I was going to add a bow but haven't done so yet, just a continuous twisted ribbon so far.
By the way my granddaughter is feeling much better and her fever is gone. Thanks for visiting my blog. JB
