~ Pulling Wool ~

I am hooking.
I could not put it off another moment!

After weeks of doing my embroidery ~ 
and glancing occasionally over at my basket{s} overflowing with my luscious wools....
I could resist no I am being very careful not to get any wool dust near my eyes,
 as I will be heading to surgery 1st thing Monday morning for the right eye, 
and again on the 24th for the left eye...

designed and hooked magnificently by April DeConick ~ ...I adore this so much.

If you have sent me a PM or Email and I haven't gotten back to you,
I'm not ignoring you ~ just happily busy getting ready for the show & hook in here on the 15th!
I will do my very best to reply, and thank you for your kind patience in the meanwhile :)

Blessed be,


  1. Happy your getting back to hooking but will miss your embroidery. A girl's gotta do what makes her happy! Wishing you all the best on your upcoming surgery. Thanks for sharing the rug pictures.
