KELLEY'S CATS

 
MY FRIEND KELLEY BELFAST OF
WITH HOOK & NEEDLE BLOG
DID A PN OF THESE CATS WAY BACK
IN 2009. I LOVED THEM SO ASKED HER TO DRAW
THEM UP FOR ME ON LINEN TO HOOK.
IT MEASURES 20" X 25".
THE CATS ARE HUGE!
I DECIDED THIS WAS THE TIME TO FINALLY
GET THEM HOOKED! WE HAVE HAD A VERY
COLD WEEK HERE WITH -22 A COUPLE OF NIGHTS
SO IT WAS A GREAT WEEK TO HOOK A RUG.
 
I PULLED MY LAST LOOP LAST NIGHT
AND BOUND IT THIS MORNING. I
USED MY TRUSTY STEAMER IRON AND
IT IS DRYING NOW. I LOVE KELLEY'S DESIGNS
BUT ESPECIALLY HER CATS! THANK YOU KELLEY,
FOR ANOTHER FUN DESIGN TO HOOK.
 
I WANT TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL
THAT BOUGHT FROM ME THIS WEEK.
I AM SO VERY THANKFUL FOR EACH ONE OF
YOU AND FOR ALL THOSE THAT VISIT ME
ON MY BLOG AND PT. I LOVE TO MAKE THINGS
WITH MY HANDS AND TO KNOW THAT OTHERS
LOVE THE THINGS I MAKE TRULY HUMBLES ME.
 
AN UPDATE ON BRIAN:
WE WENT TO MARSHFIELD LAST WEEK
AND BRIAN IS DOING VERY WELL.
HE DOESN'T HAVE TO SEE THE SURGEON FOR
A YEAR AND THE CARDIOLOGIST SOME
TIME THIS SUMMER. WE CONTINUE TO BE
AMAZED AT OUR HEAVENLY FATHER'S GOODNESS.
 
ON ROD:
UNFORTUNATELY ROD LOST HIS INDEX FINGER.
THEY HAD TO REMOVE IT SO HE IS DOWN TO
THE TWO MIDDLE FINGERS AND HIS THUMB,
WHICH I DON'T BELIEVE WAS DAMAGED IN THE
ACCIDENT.THANK YOU FOR
REMEMBERING THIS FAMILY.
 
KEEP WARM AND HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

STILL THINKING CHRISTMAS!

 
LAST YEAR I DECIDED TO TRY TO GET SOME
FALL RUGS HOOKED WAY BEFORE THE SEASON.
I DID ACCOMPLISH THAT SO THIS YEAR
I DECIDED TO DO SOME THINGS FOR THE CHRISTMAS
SEASON SO I HAVE THEM READY IN
PLENTY OF TIME. AND HOW FUN TO HAVE SOME
NEW THINGS READY TO DISPLAY WHEN I
DECORATE. SO I HAD THIS PICTURE OF AN
ANTIQUE SAMPLER FOR SOME TIME AND HAD
ALWAYS THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO
STITCH. DONE IN JUST
TWO COLORS, A SIMPLE BAND SAMPLER WITH
ALPHABET'S AND A NAME AND YEAR AT
THE BOTTOM. LOOKING AT IT THE OTHER DAY
I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE FUN TO STITCH IT
IN RED AND GREEN AND USE IT AT
CHRISTMAS FOR A SPECIAL SAMPLER. SO
I STARTED STITCHING IT LAST NIGHT.
I'M USING TWO OF MY FAVORITE DMC COLORS.
~ 355 RED ~
~ 3011 GREEN~
 
I THINK I'M REALLY GOING TO LOVE IT
WHEN IT'S DONE.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

~REBECCA WARREN~
I STITCHED FOR MYSELF OVER CHRISTMAS.
ALTHOUGH IT HAS A DECEMBER DATE

FRAMES BEFORE I CAN GET IT FRAMED

LAST WORD ON ROD WAS THAT HE IS HOME

SO THANK YOU FOR KEEPING HIM IN YOUR PRAYERS.
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
