We have a monster of a Maine winter storm headed our way. I'm still not feeling a hundred percent, so I skipped going to our Winterport Rug Hookers gathering today.
Here are a few snapshots from our last two gatherings.
I believe I had a snapshot of Cynthia's beginnings of this rug, so that would be just about three years to complete her Sunflower Rug.
As I was scrolling through my pics I came across this one below... I saw this newly hooked rug at an Antique Mall in Wichita while we were visiting friends. It was priced reasonably for the handwork. I was tempted!
Getting back into the blog of things has reminded me how much I've missed this form of creative writing and a form of journaling. It was so good for my soul and spirit to share and challenge me to focus on all of the positivity around me.
Being knocked down by this nasty bug has been frustrating as I've been getting back into my yoga, workout, crafting groove. I guess I can look at this as a reset and be excited about craving to get back into these things that are good for me. ;)
Trying to get some extra energy this morning...finding my Gusto with some Italian caffe we picked up during our trip to Sicily. With a side of cinnamon toast. :)
Motta Castle in Sicily; our Navy Girl's town
Just a few of the caffe s we enjoyed
A toast as we were leaving
Naples back to Sicily...
But back to my title.... as we are expecting between 10 to 24 inches of snow, depending on which weather report you watch. So after getting the regular Saturday chores done, the hubby stacked the wood crib in the garage, I put a nice stack in the house to warm up; we will get a fire going this evening to burn right through Monday. Comfy cozy be the fire.
I got busy stacking my wool worms to finish the ground on the Libby Rug. I had hoped to hook on it last weekend but I really was down and out with this sinus cold.
The bright sun is deceiving to the eye as winter's bite is in the air. The calm before the storm. Filled up the bird, squirrel, turkey feeders... hahaha.
Off to get some hooking in now that my belly is full from a bowl of hot soup.
Ready for it to snow, snow, snow!!!
Be safe, be warm, keep on hooking.
