New designs and a rug for me!!
I love the week between Christmas and New Years Day as I take the opportunity to relax and do the things I really enjoy, like well, eating first and foremost, setting up a puzzle, playing video games (I am sore from playing wii raquetball) and just generally puttering around. I am sad to say though, that the scale is reflecting this.......oh well, it's the holidays and I said I was going to allow myself some indulgences. Back to weight watchers point counting on Monday. I guess that's why they call it "watching your weight", a concept that's been foreign to me my entire life. I hope I'm successful getting back on the plan.
Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of new rugs with you. The first one is my revised "6 crows" rug that a local hooker, Ann Farr hooked for me. She's a wonderful hooker!!!
The second on is my new "lovebirds" pattern. We went a bit different with the colors this time, but I really like them. Brighter but still with that primitive look. Mom did a great job.
The last picture is a rug Mom gave me for Christmas. It's a pattern by Maggie Bonanami, out of her most recent book. Pick it up if you see it. She is just amazing. Mom used the most beautiful colors on this. I can't tell you how many times I walked into her room only to be yelled at by her "get out, get out". She was working on it! I'm glad I didn't see it before Christmas morning, it was a wonderful suprise.
Tell me about your wonderful Christmas surprises....
Until next time.....
- 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.
