ATHA Magazine Arrived Today

YIPPEE!!!!  Have been waiting for it to arrive.  Knew it should be here soon because yesterday a follower alerted me hers had arrived ~ thank you Carolyn.  This is the August/September 2016 issue of ATHA magazine.  If you aren't presently a subscriber, this issue will definitely push you off that ledge if you are a primitive hooker.
I apologize for the unclear photos, it isn't blurry, the camera is fogged up from the humidity outside.  As I didn't want a flash white out decided to take the magazine on the back deck to get the shot.  Even went so far as to wipe the lens before taking each photo but it still fogged up since it is so humid outside compared to inside.
For you primitive hookers, this issue is full of nothing but primitives. Just look at that line up of magnificent hookers and articles in the Contents.  I want so badly to start reading it right now but have so little left of Zach's Favorite Sports Rug to hook that requires my attention first.

When my friend Deb and I were at Barb Carroll's camp in May Barb was working on her article so that is probably what I will read first.

Another head's up from Carolyn is a notice in the magazine of a deadline for 2017 sports related rugs.  Hot damn!  I don't have a professional camera but plan to submit a photo of my son's Man Cave Rug from last year and also my grandson's rug for this year.  There is an announcement in the magazine on deadlines for various themed rugs.  

Had another thunder storm and lots of rain again last night and there is even more water accumulation in my yard.  I called mosquito control and they are to come and spray our development and particularly my property since I'm the low area in the neighborhood and the mosquito breeding ground.  Sadly I don't hear the frogs any longer so maybe the mosquito's ate them, lol.

Have a good evening everyone and stay cool.  No way I can go outside as I'm attacked by vicious mosquito constantly.  So when I walk Ben I carry a big handkerchief and whip it around me and him when I see or hear those blood suckers.  

And YES, I apply K9 Advantix II on my boy to keep him protected even tho he is an inside dog used to A/C and winter heat.  



  1. This is the BEST issue ever, IMHO. The magazine is well worth the membership. So many wonderful primitive rugs.
    Hugs :)
    P.S. Sure wish you'd share your rain ~ but not your mosquitos!

  2. Hi Saundra,
    I think I should be getting that one in the mail so am super excited! Maybe that will be the push I need to pick up my hook again!! I would also love some rain but will certainly pass on the mosquitos! When I lived back east I was a frequent entrée for them!!!
    Take care and enjoy some hooking time!
    Heart Hugs~
