Lots of hooking time this weekend!! Just perfect for me ~ love it when I can hook and not much else ~ and that's just what I did part of Saturday and most of Sunday!! As I worked on the background, it seemed apparent that I would run out of that wool, so I hooked around the pattern and left some big and some small areas so that when I filled in, it might look kind of random ~ and run out, I did!! In my stash of dyed wool, there was this beautiful really dark teal that I had done and I feel it worked out perfectly! A little bit of me wanted to call and order the background but in olden days, the little pioneer lady would have just 'made do' ~ and I'm glad that's the path I chose. It gives the background character and a not so planned look! So I'm on the homestretch with this one ~ the top border and the fish tail will finish it up! I'm running out of the sparkly gold that will go in the border and the fish tail, so that will be another little test to see what I can come up with!!
Last night, I watched the Oscars while I hooked ~ I thought it was really interesting ~ loved seeing the actresses who won in years past!! Sophia Loren looked wonderful ~ holy crow ~ she's somewhere in her 70's ~ pretty impressive!! I was disappointed that Mickey Rourke didn't win ~ I didn't see the movie but love a great comeback story and his certainly is one! It was just fun to watch all the glitz and glamour and it took us out of reality for a few hours!! That has value in itself!!
Saturday night, we went to the Kiwanis reverse raffle ~ it was fun ~ no, we didn't win!! Two winners shared the jackpot ~ I know the gal that was one of the winners ~ very deserving ~ a breast cancer survivor ~ I was glad she won!!!! Some of our kids were there and lots of their friends ~ I told Sonny that we were some of the oldest people in the crowd ~ that happens a lot lately!!!!!!!!
If I don't buckle down and work in this office ~ I might get fired from this good job!! So that's today's goal ~ TV off ~ no hooking ~ no more blog reading ~ just try to get to the bottom of the pile and see some desk top!! Have a great day!
P.S. As I reviewed this post, I see an 'orb' of light near the tree on the right!! Don't you wonder what that is?? I was going to retake the picture but no ~ I'll leave it in ~ it will give us something odd to think about ~ as if there isn't enough odd stuff to occupy our time!! Ta ta for now!!
