MR. CATFISH PROGRESS ~ ~ ~
This past weekend, I did find some time to hook in between all the fun! When my friends and husband were 'rock sitting', I had been inside hooking for a while ~ I can only take so much sun. Actually, I sneaked out there and took their picture ~ only one of the fella's seemed to see me do that and asked what I was going to do with the picture ~ I told him!!
So ~ all of the bluegreen water got finished and last night I started back on the fish scales. That is so time consuming due to placing colors and getting the right ones next to each other. When Barbara Carroll and I were color planning the scales, we first picked 5 or 6 colors ~ it didn't take a lot of hooking to figure out that was not enough, so we added more colors to make 8. As I hooked last night, it just seemed that it was so hard to keep like colors away from each other, that I added yet 3 more ~ I didn't really want to do that mid-stream, but I think they are similar enough that it won't be so noticeable but yet give more variation. By the time i hooked some of those in and was really on a roll, it was almost 11:30 and I had to give up ~ hopefully, there will be some time later this evening to tackle it again!
Today is my youngest son's 39th birthday ~ EEEEE GADDD!! His little boy has his first Little League game of the season tonite (Daddy is coach) and then they will all come to dinner here ~ I think we'll have stuffed pork chops and maybe a Birthday Pie! I better get cracking!! That sounds like something an old person would say!!!
I'm off to get my gray hairs colored ~ have a good day! ALice
