This is the 5th day of hooking on Magdalena's Rooster Pair, hooked last night  ~ I'm loving this rug and anxious to work on it!!  Today, I went down to take this photo and ended up hooking for a while ~ filled in the space to the left of the 'wild wing'!!!  The day before I hooked a row all around the border ~ I want to use that wool in the background but needed to see how much would be left ~ so even though it took time, it felt kind of ho-hum in terms of how much I got done.  Hopefully, there will be more hooking time later today and I can make some real headway!

I have two friends named Donna ~ hooker friend, Donna and non-hooker friend Donna.  Non-hooker friend Donna dropped off  this t-shirt with this lovely design on the front ~  a souvenir of her vacation!   I LOVE it ~ won't this be a nice addition to my already fashionable wardrobe?!!   

I took a little walk around outside between showers this morning!  Flowers are really starting to pop up out of the ground and I can't wait to get out there and dig in the dirt!  Okay ~ I'm off to do something ~ either office work and put the wool back where it belongs down in the hooking room.  Last week, after the show on Saturday, everything got carried down there but nothing got put away because ~ I went to the Woolley Fox to hook!  And it still awaits me ~

Last night we had our first batch of fried mushrooms.  Sonny has actually found some nice ones this year ~ son, Teddy, also found some the other night ~  most years it's slim pickings here in our woods but he's been so happy with his 'catch' this week!  Hope there are fresh morels in your life!

Your T-shirt is great! What a find! It is cool that you guys gather the morels and eat them. I have never done that, but I love mushrooms! Your roosters are coming right along and I hope you have time to work on them soon!

Wow, your rug is coming along fast. If you keep it up, it'll be done before you know it. Fried mushrooms sound wonderful... And your t-shirt is great!!

your working like crazy on that rug. I would never know what to eat for wild mushrooms but glad you found some good ones.

Your rooster rug looks great! Very nice dark colors, very antiquey.
Morels! How lucky that you have a place to pick them. Our favorite place by a stream flooded out a few years ago and we haven't had a good batch since then.
Enjoy a plateful for me!
