It was just delivered! Maggie Bonanomi, rug hooking extraordinaire, recommended I get a Hartman Hook and I am so glad I did! I ordered it last week and it just arrived! Now I can finish up some hooked rugs. I am so very blessed to have a community of great women around me. I admire Maggie's work, talent, and designs!
And I harvested some lavender this morning...
And these colors are for my next unfinished treasure - I know it is gonna rock...... but can't say much other than that 'cause it is a Christmas present. (Shhhhhh....... she reads my blog.)
I have to admit a fault I have.......shhh. I have MANY unfinished projects. I know I am the only one of my kind. No one else starts something and then lets it sit for days, months, even YEARS, on end. There is not one other person on this planet that has this claim to fame - I have so many unfinished projects, that when I get one old project out, my kids think I started and finished something new! Anyway, uhmm, this one was started in 2005. Seven years ago. Shhhh..... Yep no one else can say they are my equal! The pattern is 'Jack Be Nimble' from Lori Brechlin at Notforgotten Farm. I LOVE IT! I should have finished it 7 years ago!
I am a displaced early American born about 200 years too late! Actually, I do like my indoor bathroom facilities, but envy the simplicity and commonness that filled the days of the colonial women. Hard work, but they would and did find joy in their day!
