Hubbys on his way!

Well, I am just sitting here waiting for the phone call from hubby saying he's in Atlanta. I thought he would have called by now.....the waiting is the worst...! He should be in Syracuse by this afternoon. Knowing him, he's at a ticket counter trying to get on a flight right now!!! 2 weeks of R&R, then he goes back for a couple more months but the worst is behind us. This is the longest we've gone without seeing each other. 9 1/2 months before R&R is tooooo long!

So, before I head down to get him, I just wanted to share a couple things. The first is a picture of our first butter mold inspired chair pad in a series of 6 that I have designed. Mom is working on them all, but has been sidetracked with the next picture. She wanted me to design her a rug to enter in the NYS fair, so I had some ideas swimming around and the pattern you see is what I came up with. Fun and whimsical. The wools are really going to make it. So, I had all six of the butter mold chair pads drawn, and she got the first one done, but then just "had to" start the fair rug last night!!! So, hold for the other 5 chair pads, looks like I'll have to hook them. I'm off to put the first one on my website right now.

Until next time.....

About Me

Thank you very much for taking the time to read my blog. I am married and just entering the second phase of my life as a Army retiree's wife. My husband and I did 25+ years in the Army. He is now officially a retired Colonel and has just entered the civilian workforce and I am happily settled in our 1830 Stone house. I (along with my Mom) operate www.theoldtatteredflag and currently we are building a small shop in the back part of the house. We live in Northern NY, right near the Canadian border. I have two handsome sons and 2 puggles. Life is busy for us, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
