NEW PUNKIN RUG

GOOD MONDAY MORNING EVERYONE! I JUST
FINISHED THIS RUG FOR OUR HOME THAT I THOUGHT
I'D SHARE WITH YOU TODAY. IT WILL HANG IN
OUR LIVING ROOM. IT'S MY OWN DESIGN.
I'M STILL HAVING ECZEMA TROUBLES SO I WILL
BE PUTTING ALL MY WOOL AND RUG HOOKING
SUPPLIES AWAY FOR A WHILE TO SEE IF IT WILL
HELP. I AM TRYING NOT TO THINK ABOUT HAVING
TO GIVE UP RUG HOOKING PERMANENTLY! CAN'T GO
THERE IN MY HEAD YET. I LOVE RUG HOOKING
SO MUCH....SIGH.

I JUST ACQUIRED THE BLACK BOX IN THE MIDDLE
OF MY STACK OF BOXES SO THOUGHT
I'D SHOW YOU HOW THEY LOOK. ALWAYS NEEDING
NEW PLACES TO STORE THINGS. I ALREADY HAD
THE CRANBERRY ONE ON THE BOTTOM AND THE
GRAY ONE ON TOP WAS IN THE GUEST BEDROOM.
I TALKED MISS ZOE INTO POSING FOR ME!


OK MOM, ARE WE DONE YET? I HAVE TO GO
EAT MY BREAKFAST!!

STILL WORKING ON A FEW MORE FALL ITEMS
FOR SALE WHICH I HOPE TO FINISH UP THIS
WEEK SO PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR MORE INFO.

SAMPLER CHALLENGE....AND REMEMBERING


HERE IS MY FINISHED SAMPLER FOR
THE SAMPLERMAKER'S CHALLENGE.
I'LL BE OFFERING THE FINISHED SAMPLER
FOR SALE SOON. YOU CAN READ ABOUT
THE CHALLENGE IN THE PREVIOUS POST.

TODAY WE ARE REMEMBERING AND THINKING
OF ALL THE LOVED ONES LOST ON
SEPTEMBER 11, 2001.  IT'S HARD TO THINK IT'S BEEN
TEN YEARS BUT I'M SURE FOR THOSE FAMILIES
IT'S LIKE YESTERDAY. OUR HEARTS AND
PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL THOSE THAT
LOST A LOVED ONE ON THIS DAY. MAY
WE ALWAYS REMEMBER THE MANY WHO WERE
LOST AND THE MANY THAT HELPED A STRANGER
BECAUSE THERE WAS A NEED. LET US NOT
WAIT FOR A TRAGEDY TO BE KIND TO A STRANGER
OR GIVE HELP WHERE IT IS NEEDED MOST.

IN GOD WE TRUST
