Isn't this the best mermaid?? She is so cute and sooo colorful!! I'm very partial to mermaids ~ I have any number of mermaid patterns to hook for the lake place ~ have I started one? No ~ but this inspires me!! Mermaid is hooked by Thirza Youker ~ we met on the trip to England two years ago and each year at the Sauder rug show, I get to see her!
Ta da!! The lovely lady in green is Thirza, the mermaid artist!!! And the lady in blue, who is looking so happy with her camera, is my friend, Heidi!! We were all glad to see one another and check in on mutual friends ~ that is only one of the added bonuses of attending the Sauder Village Rug Show!!
This morning, I'm doing laundry, more garden watering (hope it's enough till Sunday), packing for the weekend, and hooking!! Last night, around 11:15, I went down to my hooking room and started the 4th purse front for that order I mentioned several weeks ago!! I hooked for two hours and have background to fill in ~ I'm determined to get that done, steam and serge each one, and take them to the lake to hand-sew the backs onto the hooked front!! Then next week, I have to make the shoulder strap, attach that to the purse, line them, affix a closure and antique button and get those things in the mail!! And on September 6, I have a show that I need to dye for!! Do you think I'm a little bit busy??!! But that's my m.o. ~ cram it all into as short a time period as possible and hope for great results!! Have a good weekend!
