Ramblings to Catch Up

Sorry I've been absent but have a real good excuse.... I had cataract eye surgery on the left eye Monday so that was a totally lost hooking day.  

Then yesterday was the post-op visit and it was equally lost as far as hooking since it was catch up with stuff which didn't get taken care of Monday.  What makes it worse is that I'm not supposed to bend over and put my head below my heart which would put undue pressure on my eye.

And, I'm not supposed to lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk, which means I cannot maneuver a bolt of linen to cut out patterns waiting for orders.  My next post op visit isn't until 10/21 so think I'll call tomorrow to see how much longer before I can move a bolt of linen and get on the floor to cut it since it isn't on a roll to a table.

Anyway, I'm only just a smidgen away from finishing the Goode witch but couldn't wait any longer to make a blog post...oh SO close.
Now I'm in a quandary as to what will go on my frame next.  But since today is the 12th and this delightfully cute Halloween design needs to be on my harvest table before Halloween it needs to be bound. 

Perhaps I'll forgo my desire to put that new rug on the frame right away and finish this one first.   Ohhhh, what sacrifices we hookers make, lol.

Hope you have a great evening.



  1. So happy the surgery went well and you are just minutes from finishing another wonderful rug!
    I bet you will break down and put something on your frame.
    Hugs :)

  2. Wish I was close by and I would move the linen for you and cut it, but the drawing you would have to do. I hope you have a speedy recovery and we can't wait to see how how much better you are able to see colors.

  3. I am happy to hear that things went well, but I think I would mess that up, no bending or lifting wouldn't work for me, lol. I had mine on a roll bar, but that came down when I redid the room, really did make it easier to pull off the linen. Love how the rug is coming out, so fun but still prim.
