There is a lot to show you today, we've been very busy!! Yesterday I finished the hooked Crow purse. I am very pleased with how it turned out. I decided to just hook the front and use a beautiful "tapestry" like fabric I had for the back. I did my favorite "twisted wool" edge to hide the seams and the strap is a long piece of linen stripe wool. This will hang at the hip. The pattern and kit are both available right now in our "Rug Hooking" section. www.theoldtatteredflag.com

Mom comes down from her room every morning and says "Wow, that homestead rug is big!!" I think she expected to have it done in her normal 3-4 days. It is a large design but oh so fabulous. She has chosen to do the background with our new Dark Cornfield. We have had cornfield for quite some time, but she decided to double the batch for a grungier look. If you look back at my older blogs you can see that she used the light cornfield in the background of the Family Tree rug, with the dark cornfield on the outer border. What a great primitive look!

I Love, love, love this!!! I wanted to do my own purse pattern so of course it had to be done with my favorite symbol.

I have to tell you that the "Hell's Joke" workout beat me. I could do it as the soreness wore off, but a couple years ago I had to have injections in my knees as I was told I had arthritis. Well, apparently the workout is not good for the knees, so I had to stop. But, I am continuing with my 30 minutes on the elyptical, everyday. I found this great idea on pinterest and gave it a try. Mix together a can of fruity diet soda, with some fresh fruit and ice for a 0 Weight Watchers points treat. It is really good!!
