Aaaaaah, Finally Time to Hook
I did not go to the hook-in in Lancaster. I stayed home and sewed. A tailored jacket, blouse and skirt to be exact! But the work is done, we delivered it. So as of yesterday afternoon, I am free to hook again for a while.
And that's what I did! I finished my sunflower pillow top that I started in the Jane Halliwell Green class that I took about a month ago. Well, not 'finished' by Kathy's standards. The HOOKING is done. It may be a looooong time before it actually becomes a pillow! With a label.
There were small morning glories in the corners, but I opted to leave them out. I didn't like them done in the shades of blue that were included in the kit. I also tried white with some yellow and orange, but no matter what I did, they looked like blobs! It just looks better without them. So it's done!
It gave me a lot to think about too. My baby is 40? How time flies!!! Was it that long ago that I was forty? I certainly don't feel old mentally, though some of the physical stuff I could do without!
I tried to tell Brad that the best of his life is yet to come. That being older and more mature has it's rewards. He said, OH! Like the 10% senior discounts. hahaha!!! Maybe... But more like having a better appreciation of the joys that living can bring. I have truly enjoyed the years since 40, much more than the ones before.
I've been playing with the new and improved method of adding pictures. Look! I can put them anywhere and don't have to load them in backwards order! Whoo-hoo!!! The Old Dog can learn a new trick after all!
Now that I'm done bragging, maybe I better sign off before something happens to make the whole post fly off into cyberspace and never be seen again!
Enjoy the Spring weather!!!
