Okay, it wasn't really madness but that was a catchy title. Today was hectic and busy. First thing early this morning was the arrival of the plumber... yeah, think about what they make per hour and it isn't minimum wage either folks.
Last weak discovered a leak in the master shower running from the shower head at the wall and running down the side and in front of the shower floor. So for the last several days have been using the guest bath. Of course I worried the walls would need to be ripped out, new shower installed along with a new floor etc. WHEW, I feel blessed to have only had a bill of $145 for an hour's work. Am definitely looking forward to using my shower again.
I know you want me to fast forward to the 'good stuff' the hooking stuff but.... since it is to rain tomorrow decided to cut grass. So right after breakfast and with plumber gone I cut my boy Ben's back yard with the push mower....half an hour. Then after lunch got on the riding mower and cut the rest of the major part of the yard with the riding mower for an hour. Mama is still hot and tired.
So now to the GOOD stuff. Had really hoped to make the transition from grandson's sports rug to the Ned design a day or so ago but that didn't happen. And, won't pull loops on it tonight either because I'm just too tired.
However, I did look at some wool and will sleep on where I will go tomorrow.
Think I'll hook the butterfly first and then the flower. As I always prefer to look in my worm bags first, came up with the two bundles you see hugging one another. My thought was to have the lighter multicolored stripe grey as the soft center but not sure about the outline yet.
Well of course there must be purple in the rug, it is a vintage design I first saw hooked at Barb Carroll's and where I was first educated of the 'neutral color purple'.
The wool worms above hooks up rather like a soft paisley and is a piece of wool (I think) came from Dorr. It has gold, teal, red/orange. Might be nice to blend with other colors BUT do I need poison?
Glass Half Full knows me as the Queen of Tweak.
Since I'm a tired will look at these options and others with fresh eyes tomorrow over coffee and after a nice refreshing shower in the master bath. I am the MASTER of my DOMAIN. Hmm, or maybe it is my boy Ben who is the master of this place.
