Hope everyone is doing good.
When Saundra first asked her blogging friends
if they wanted to join in on a challenge,
I had looked at those who took the challenge
hooking Lady on Horseback and I knew
I wanted to hook this rug.
Now I only have time to hook on weekends,
so this may take me a while to complete.
This was one day of hooking.
(in between customers at store)
Like Saundra, I wanted my rug to be more
of an Autumn theme.
I chose my kitty color to be this yellowish tan color.
Reminds me of my kitty Tanner.
He was the first pet I had here when
I moved to this river community.
My neighbors cat had the litter.
He was born on Halloween.
This was the wool color.
If you would like to follow along
with Saundra's blog, here is the link.
Day 2 had me hooking the first dog
Gray to remind me of my daughter's husky.
Finished the kitty.
Tree almost done.
After I hooked the dog, I knew an outline
was needed, otherwise the sky would
have washed it out.
Close up of kitty.
Since I had no time to draw this pattern,
I reached out to Saundra to do the hard part for me.
Thank you Saundra!
Saundra has many patterns which you can

In other news,
the ice storm came.
First as snow, then ice.
Fortunately we did not lose power,
but we were prepared.
Wood was stocked for the fireplace,
food stocked and we could put outside in a cooler
if need be. Plus we had candles.
We also had 2 more inches of snow yesterday.
Valentine's decor is slowly being
put away for next year.
Spring is coming out.
YAY...my favorite time of year!
At night I have been crocheting.
The only thing I can see to do by lamplight.
I should buy a new Ott light.
Our bellys are full!
I made a big breakfast this morning.
Bacon, fried potatoes, eggs and toast.
I dont often do this, but had a hankering.
Now we are off to work the stores.
Hope everyone enjoys their last week
Lady On Horseback Blessings To All!
