Gettin' Ready

Am trying desperately to get ready for Cape May amid the continual unrest with Windows 10 and trying to keep order to my humble abode, property and my boy Ben.  Now that Kim has her own drill perhaps she can fly by and give me a helping hand.  She can bring Abby and she and Ben can play in the backyard (Ben likes baby pups and big dogs).

Have made my first (got that...first) packing of wool for the rug I'm hooking at camp with Kris Miller.  That would be Nantucket Broom Ride designed by Lori Brechlin of NotForgottenFarm.  While I do pack up wool a week or so ahead of camp, I do check it and usually make additions to the wool before leaving.  I am SO looking forward to this adorable whimsy to put on my harvest table.  

It is hard to see in the photo of the wool selection but there are reds, golds and greens.  But now looking at the wool in the containers see perhaps I need a brighter gold to add for those stars.  Hmmm, see what I mean?
Am still plugging away pulling a few loops on Hobo Joe when I can. Was hoping to have him finished for the show at Cape May but don't think so.  I've also been busy pulling together the items I want to sell at Cape May.

As I'm not doing shows any longer I've a Witch Doll with a hooked face, some applique wool pumpkins on pedestals, cats in candy corn, a cute pumpkin head doll with spider web wings and a few other things to sell. What doesn't go at Cape May will be put on ebay or etsy once I return from camp. 


  1. Lol, well I'll bring my new drill and poke a few holes in windows 10 for you. That will teach it a lesson for being so mean to you.

  2. What a interesting rug Nantucket Broom Ride is, can't wait to see it hooked.

  3. What a fun rug that will be.
    I bet you get Hobo Joe done before you leave!
    Hugs :)

  4. It's been so hot here today even with the breeze that I'm having a hard time thinking of wool. I feel more like wearing a bikini but that would't be a great idea either.

    I know you'll have a great time and I wish I could drop in and have a great time too. You may still have time to finish Hobo.


  5. oh cannot wait to see your progress on Nantucket Broom Ride! share lots!!!!!!

  9. What a great pattern !
    As you are packing to leave, I wonder if Ben can sense you are leaving ?
    Windows 10 can wait til you get home. Maybe by then they will have some updates !

  10. For those unfamiliar with blogging can right click on your photos and see it enlarged. Now the rug color choices are much better displayed. Now we just need to see your progress.
