Despite those of you who think I'm a fast hooker there's plenty more background and a few snowflakes to go on this small piece. I've learned that when a motif is hooked to do at least one row of background around it to not only control the size of the motif but also reduces the background hooking boredom. Okay, I know some folks enjoy that part of the rug and consider it relaxing. To me it is rather boring but necessary, just like binding 😏.
I made black eyed peas and corn bread for good luck for 2022, the peas were delicious but understand why it has been so long since making corn bread..it's very dry even with a little butter. But it still seemed like a frivolous treat for me.
Mild temperatures again today reached 65 degrees F. but tonight we are expecting low temps and snow thru the night into tomorrow. High tomorrow will be 35. I met a neighbor during my walk today and she said snowfall is predicted between 1" to 12" and we laughed because it is so true depending on which part of the state you live. But since the ground is warm I'm hoping to still make a 1 pm appointment tomorrow.
