~ Could it really be so? ~

that's it.
I have made up my mind...
I am going to pull out my hook and wools and HOOK SOMETHING!
it has been too long, too hot, too muggy, I've been too busy, too many excuses not to!

 I have been drooooooling over all of the FABulous photos of this year's

if you are on Facebook, and a member of my

I haven't really pulled a loop since working on and finishing this big-boy in April...
4 months have passed, that's long enough!

yes, I have been loving my embroidery ~ it is fun and fast...and very rewarding

so I am in the planning stages for a new design for Autumn.....
sketchbooks all over the place, boxes, bags & baskets overflowing with my woollies,
and my beloved hooks and frame are being dusted off.
