I love replicating antique adaptation rugs but also design my own. Looking at old rugs in Early American Life magazine was my inspiration to learn to hook.

Has Spring Sprung?
Sure hope so and hope we don't have a freeze or snow storm in March. Many of my daffodils have flowered, numerous crocus started blooming last week, and yesterday even saw a couple flowers on my forsythia bush.
There are still many daffodils left to bloom and they manage to come up even thru the many leaves which haven't been raked up. The property is just too large for me to rake up all the leaves, plus the trash men won't take them. I tried putting a fair amount in my trash container once and they weren't taken away. They left a note saying I needed to find the proper facility which takes yard waste. Now imagine that.... they won't take leaves which will decompose into soil yet they will haul away animal feces tied in a plastic bag and tossed in the trash. Makes no sense.
Today I must cut Ben's backyard and mulch up the remainder of the leaves which haven't been raked up and moved elsewhere. Am tired of raking and hauling the leaves further into the woods so will try mulching with the mower as Ben needs his yard to be tidy.
Am slowly working on Magdalena's Goat and this is the mess which surrounds me as I hook. Perhaps later today I'll be able to pull some loops. But right now I've got to see if my mower will start AND gather some vinyl siding so a worker can apply that to my shed after a new roof is put on it. Happy Saturday. Saundra
