Cannot believe it is June 2nd already and have very little hooking accomplished to show for my time. I've truly not been a couch potato but life has gotten in the way as most of you can relate to.
OH!!!!! I know what took up a lot of my time!!! My serger. I had an order for a pattern and the serger thread broke. It was a bitch of a time over 3 days to get it to work. I'd rethread it, try to sew and it wouldn't work. This went on for 3 days and each day after I'd had enough I'd stop, cool down and decide to try again the next day before tossing the serger in the trash. Finally got it working until the next time.
Since there were a few quite chilly days I made a big pot of vegetable soup which I'm still enjoying and even froze some. I've been trimming limbs, pulling weeds, and sadly the yard doesn't look like it has been touched. Oh well, there's always after the next two days of rain to get back to it.
Now on to fun stuff ~ I did draw out a small pattern to put on the wall next to me and it is an antique adaptation I've named Potted Plant. And this is the little bit I've managed to hook. What makes it seem even worse, the pattern I drew for the spot only measures 10 x 20. Okay, I heard someone snicker out there 😊. But since it is going to rain tomorrow am hoping to get more hooked on this small piece.
It feels so good to get back to a new normal, or what I remember as being normal over a year ago. I can go to the store without a mask, I'm chatting with friends, HUGGING my family and even anticipating the Cape May Rugs by the Sea rug camp. Sure hope that happens this year.
