One Under My Belt

Good morning sweet friends!
Well I finished my first rug.

I used colors that I love the most.

Browns, blue, mustard and red.
With a bit of green, black and gray mixed in.

I drew a big red tulip for Spring.

Around the vase I hooked in the ditch some blue/ red fabric.

Once completed, I tacked it on the wall.

In the corner of our living room.
I think I did pretty good for teaching myself.
It is actually fun.

Hope you all have a great weekend.
I am off to go shopping for my granddaughter Mikayla's birthday.
Having some quality time with my daughter Michele.

April CupboardScape

Good evening sweet friends.
Yesterday I realized that I had not posted
this month's CupboardScape.
Lots on my mind.

This month is all about the shoes.
Did you notice I placed a suticase inside a suitcase?
The smaller one was my dad's.

With a few dolls tucked in.
My latest bisque one with fabric arms.

Then there is my wax doll.
Always keep this away from the windows.

My newest black child's shoes.
I am the Amelda Marcos of antiques shoes....
just kidding...but I do love them.

Tiny black and white one.

Can you inagine having to button up your shoes?

Then I recently purchased these adult black ones.

These are going to be my Halloween display shoes.

Can you picture a witch wearing these?

I want to say a big thank you
for everyone's well wishes for Bob.
We are still waiting for the surgeon for a surgery date.
It's driving me crazy...because the faster they go in,
the better chance he has of them getting the "C" word out.
Plus now they told us recovery time is 12 weeks,
instead of the 6 we were told before.
No Brimfield this year it seems.
It was going to be our fist year going.

Shoe Collection Blessings To All!

I Finally Took The Leap

Good evening sweet friends.
Well I finally did it!
I decided to teach myself how to hook a rug.

I started off by purchasing some wool...
oh the decisions I had to make.
I think this may be my next obsession.
For those that already hook rugs,
do you find it hard to choose wools?
I wanted to buy them all!

 I started to hand cut my own loops.
It was actually fun!
See I started with creating my brown vase. 

I got so excited that I had to start the flowers
before I was done with the vase.

Then we were given bad news.
I apologize for not blogging for awhile.
The bad news was hard for me to cope with.
Please say a prayer for hubby Bob.
He has to undergo surgery soon and will be out
of commission for at least 12 weeks in therapy.
Bob is my rock and now I have to be the rock for a bit.
I consider myself the pebble in our relationship. LOL
When hardship and health issues happen,
it really makes you realize the importance of living your life
to the fullest you can 

Thank you everyone for understanding...
you all are my true blogging friends!

I promise to start back to blogging regularly as soon as I am up to it.

Rug Hooking Blessings To All!
