I WON ~ ~ ~

These three little magazines edited by Cilla Cameron in England! Jennifer Manuell of Fish Eye Rugs had this giveaway a couple of weeks ago! I was happy to have a chance to read Cilla's publications since we met her and took class from her while we were in Reeth, England three years ago. When I am finished, I'll pass them around to my hooking friends on this side of the pond! Thank you, Jennifer!

This little baby deer went by my office window last week with her mama ~ by the time I got the camera and found a window to take the photo, the mama deer was down in the woods. Isn't that little baby cute? If you double click the picture, you can see him close-up.

This morning, we will be attending the funeral of the 42 year old son of a dear friend of mine ~ we all lived in the same neighborhood and he went to school and graduated with my middle son. I love my friend dearly and just feel so sad for their family. I usually only post about happy things but this one is weighing on my heart today. Life is fleeting ~ we must all count our blessings!

After the holiday weekend, I will get the hook-in rug pictures posted. Have a good Fourth of July and light a sparkler for me!

Sorry to hear about your friend. It is hard to see our friends suffer, but she is lucky to have you there for her. A bittersweet day with a surprise in the mail and a wonderful visitor. I have never heard of that magazine, you will have to tell us about it.

Cilla Cameron is a well-known rug hooking teacher in England and really in the U.S. as well. This is a little magazine that she puts together and appears to have 'editors' from different spots in her country and some other places too. It's a composite of articles and a few pictures and some dye tips,etc. This was the first I had seen any of the publications and I believe we can subscribe to it even though we are across the pond. I'll put a link in my next post!! Thanks for asking!!
