Hooking For Autumn

I cannot believe it is Monday already.
Time sure does fly when you are having fun.
Saturday morning Bob and I went to
our first garage sale of the year.
We found a few goodies for both stores.

The protest was peaceful.
The state police were in town,
along with the police where we live, 
while the local police followed the protestors
along the route.

The only problem was folks were making
derogatory remarks and threats 
on the town's Facebook page,
so they had to take it down.
Folks can be idiots in my opinion.

We decided to keep both stores open.
Glad we did as the whole thing was
over in about 5 minutes by us.
We guessed there were about 50 protestors.

So back to my Indian corn.
I hooked these at the store in between
customers for a few weekends.
I made a few yellow ones last year 
for one of my untraditional Christmas trees.

I made more yellow and orange this time. 
Added real corn husks to the end.
I liked how they turned out.
I forgot to take a pic of the backside,
however it is either yellow or orange wool.

Last night after closing we changed
out our Father's Day window,
and created a tea party themed one.
With the sun setting later in the day,
I cannot get good pictures.
Folks do love our window displays though.
It makes my heart sing!

Hope everyone has a great start
to the week!

Summer Hooking Blessings To All! 


  1. I'm glad the protest was peaceful and short and that you could keep your store open. Your Indian corns are so sweet. I love that you used real husk on them.
    Hugs, Julia

    1. Thank you Julia. We were glad it was peaceful too. Janice

  2. What fun little autumn corn. Glad people kept their heads in the protests. Hope you get a picture of the tea party display for later. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

    1. I tried to take pics again tonight and the sun was still shining. Cannot get any pics with the sun. :-( Janice

  3. Good news on the protest and keeping the store open. I like the hooked corn. If you want more non-traditional colors, don't forget it comes in blue/green/purple/red also.

  4. Glad things stayed well with the protest and your stores were okay. Love the work on the Indian Corn; real corn husks were the perfect touch. Would love a peek of the tea party display.

    1. Thank you Sandra. I was glad I kept those corn husks. Janice

  5. Love your Indian corn. Well done. And I thought the protest would be fine and I'm glad it was.(You're right -- FB brings out the worst in people.)

  6. I've always thought about hooking some corn as they are very attractive in a wooden bowl. But so far haven't done so. Just how long does this protest have to go on? Enough already.

  7. Thankfully the protest was peaceful and short lived!
    I wonder if some of them even knew why they were protesting.

  8. So glad it was peaceful. You have stayed busy for sure I love your corn with the real corn husks.

    1. We were glad too and glad I saved those corn husks. Janice

  9. Janice, love those corn cobs. They look so realistic but very primitive. Glad you didn't have any problems and I would love to see your window display. Those are such fun to see in every store..Stay well..xxoJudy

    1. Thank you Judy! I keep trying to take pics, but the sun keeps getting in the way. Janice

  10. Love the corn Janice! I've seen several "versions" of hooked corn and yours is some of the best! Looking forward to the tea party! ~Robin~

    1. Thank you Robin! I have seen other indian corn I have liked too. Janice

  11. Love the corn the real husks are perfect. I love tea paties!

  12. Thanks Jacky! Tea is my favorite drink. Janice
