I've started on this little rug that is for Gene Shepherd's online blog hook-in. True to form ~ for me ~ on Gene's January 21st blog posting, I ~ Alice ~ was the first one to commit to being part of this project ~ and true to form ~ I just started this yesterday!!! If I am to have a chance at being in his article for RHM, this has to be finished and the picture sent to him by next week!! This is the way I live my life ~ remember my 'one little word' for the year ~ CHANGE? Well, so far, I haven't even taken a baby step!

And this is a picture of a 'good thing' as Martha Stewart says! This Coach purse was GIVEN to me yesterday by my friend, Rita ~ a wild woman, by the way!!!!! Such a generous person, she is ~ and I felt tons better when she told me it was a 'knock-off' that she got on her recent trip to Florida!!! I'm not very discerning about such things and when I opened it and saw Coach ~ I nearly croaked!! She kept me from nearly expiring by 'fessing up' and telling me that she bought these for four of her friends and that she had so much fun picking and choosing!! Far be it from me to ruin her fun ~ so I accepted it graciously (for me) and considered it one of my lessons in learning to be a good receiver!! I'm open to receiving all the abundance the universe has to offer and abundance comes in myriad ways!!!! Thank you, dear friend!!!

And now ~ I must hook!! Have a good day ~ Alice

P.S. I find it quite weird that just after I posted this and talked about abundance, that the most recent blog listing at the left was about that very thing!!!

Hi How do you hook so fast? I haven't picked mine up since March, been busy quilting for our guilds quilt show this month. Could you send me the link to gene's blog. Thanks
