 Hello everyone, 4 days to official spring and we still have lots of snow on the ground but I can feel the change of season in my body.

I finished my Madonna of the Street rug and have only a little bit left to whip. I kept it to work at the Evening Matters rug hooking meeting but it was canceled.

 I signed up for a rug hook-in in St John  New Brunswick with the Carnagie Rug Hooking group in April. I can't wait to see everyone again. I had a lot of fun at the  St Andrews N.B. rug hook-in and I'm sure it will be a lot of fun again.

I drew the pattern for my next rug on the same monk's cloth backing as for my previous rug because I plan to use a #3 cut again for the face. This one is called Our Lady of Good Counsel. I haven't dyed the wool yet or even looked at what I have to work with. Lately, I've been busy with what life has given me and I work around it. 

Our Lady of Good Counsel's halo and lettering need fixing. It is a free domain picture.

I printed the photo with my computer and used a sheet of mylar and trace the outline. I taped the mylar to a hole cut in a cardboard box and used my cell phone light to project the image to the wall but it was so close to the wall that it was a challenge to trace it to the bigger piece of paper on the wall.

My brother Gerard spent the weekend with us and we had a lovely visit. He arrived with a big bottle of wine. We chatted all evening until late. We took him to our favorite family restaurant on Sunday morning but he pulled a fast one on us and paid the bill before we even blinked.

Thanks for visiting and leaving comments. I really appreciate them.
