The King & the Hookers...

yes....I know.
I know how handsome I am...
in fact, I know that I am so handsome,
that you continually take candind photos of me while I'm trying to sleep ~

I must be from royal bloodlines...you are infatuated with me....
I mesmerize you with my chiseled features and Roman-esque profile....

what's that you say?...Sphinx? oh yes...that must be it...
that must be who my ancestors were...beloved, honored & regal....

why...of course you may call me King....
Oh Iggy ~ you are an Ignatious Katt!!!

and, I had thee pleasure of Miss Jane, Miss Joan & Miss Cindy
visiting today for a little Hookin'....No cookin' ~

Miss Jane was working on some beautiful hooked Strawberries,
that she will be offering at a local Strawberry festival.., held at the school where she teaches...
Miss Cindy came with a newly drawn out pattern that she designed,
a sheep, beeskep, crow, flag...perfect for the primitive lover!
(she bought some yummy wools for her rug, can't wait to see it finished!)

and here is Miss Joan...(she will be punishing me severely for posting this pic)...
I was taking pics and said that I was only shooting 'hands' and so she posed her dainty-little-hands with the polite 'pinky' up...but, I snapped her expression, too...
oh how loverly....
(& boy I'm in BIG trouble for this!)

another shot of Miss Cindy's rug in progress...
all three of these talented gals are prior students of mine, and I couldn't be more proud of them
or Thankful for their Friendship!!!

Tomorrow will be spent quietly ~ perhaps working a bit in the herb garden, or maybe designing a few new things for this coming saturdays' Open House... we'll see...
I'm hoping that you ALL have a beautiful, peaceful & BLESSED
Easter Holiday!!

blessings from the farm,

I guess being I can't go to one of your hooking classes I live vicariously through your blog...THANK YOU ... I don't know any place close to me to take a class.

Oh that Iggy is a precious little devil!! I think you read his mind precisely. ;o) Looks like a fun day hooking.....And, yup, if I were Miss Joan, I'd be hopping mad. As precious and cute-as-the-dickens as she is, so not fair! ;o) Wishing you and yours a very blessed Easter Lori! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Love your King Iggy.... the moniker does seem to suit him....

Wish I could join the Hookers, No Cookers! Would love to learn the craft.... I'm so in love with hooked rugs these days..... Right now I am just a No Cooker... :)

Wishing you and your family a beautiful and blessed Easter!!!

What fun to see a bit of the rugs your students are working on! Your quiet day sounds splendid. We're having a quiet Easter too. I wish my herb garden was in...but we did get the raised beds purchased! Snow flurries now though!
Have a wonderful Easter Sunday!

Jane said...

So great to be with such happy hookers!! I finished the strawberries last night. Thanks for such a lovley morning!

Faye said...

Oh wow...What a great time you gals were having~~ And, yes, I'm betting you ARE in trouble, but shouldn't be....Nice picture of both the ladies and their works.. I am jealous! I really REALLY need to get up your way to visit and see this hookin' in person...perhaps a road trip this summer....

You should be so proud of your budding former students...Fruits of your labor~~

Always, Faye
