This was the scene at our house this morning. Just a little s - sn - sn - snow...ugh, I've said the "s" word. I'm not ready to see this white stuff yet. I was loving Autumn still. I don't want to rush into w.i.n.t.e.r .....not yet....sigh.
I've been in a hooking slump for about a month. Can't seem to spend any quality time working on any thing. My energy level is low and I just feel kinda blah. Maybe I'm a little burned out right now.
Three friends and I went to a local shop's Christmas open house last Thursday and to lunch. It was a wonderful get away day. The shop was totally wonderful with all the Christmas decor. I bought some wide burlap wired ribbon to make some chair swags for Christmas and a Christmas tree topper which was needed to replace our rusty white punched tin star topper. I also bought a heavy iron basket which I love, but not sure I'm going to keep.
I really liked the basket, but it just doesn't seem to work in any area I place it. It was too expensive to not be "wowed," so I'm returning it. The shop had it filled with large pine cones and the ribbon was around it, as well.
Here are some pictures of the very colorful Fall we have had here in central Illinois:
Yes, the last two pictures are real...our backyard really was ablaze with bright red this year!
I hope to get back into the swing of things with rug hooking, so will post pictures of progress soon.
This is my 200th post, so I'm going to give away some wool!! Please leave a comment and I will randomly choose two people to receive an assortment of wool...good luck!
Have a great week! Hugs, Linda
