Once again, I'm posting right from my phone! Maybe I'll post more often since I don't have to download every picture to the computer!

This morning, I took time to get these squiggles hooked in to the lower right corner of The Rooster Pair. There is one more line to do and then the background fill-in can begin. It's definitely a good way to use up leftover wool worms! My worm basket is fairly small because I cut as I go but there is plenty to choose from and this rug is making a nice dent in it!

Tonite, I had great fun talking via Skype to my very oldest friend, Kay! We have been friends for probably 63+ years! Can you imagine? That's a very long time ~ since before I went to school! I value my friends, old and new, and love to stay in touch. Then, my former sister-in-law Skyped me and I got to talk to her for a while!! The only bad thing about Skype is if you're having a bad hair day and are still in your jammies, you can't hide it!

I'm off to jump on the treadmill for a bit ~ I need to put in about 5 miles!! Yesterday, St. Peters church had their Easter bake sale ~ those ladies bake the best poticas (nut rolls) and rum cakes and the best cabbage rolls and potato salad ~ it's all sitting on my hips tonite! Ta ta for now!

I love it !! Some day when I actually have a variety of worms gathered, I am going to do something with this kind of background...
I sure wish I could have made it to your studio when we were in Ohio...If I make a trip back anythime soon, I'll be sure to get our schedule confirmed on ALL ends, so that I can do more than make it to 1 store for a quick shop

Thanks, Robin ~ that will be fun! Yes, save your worms ~ I have another project I want to do with them, too! Wish I could hook all day, every day!!

So what's the next wormy project? The rooster pair will be absolutely wonderful!!!
I don't think I could ever post from my phone. It takes me almost forever to type on it.
Happy Friday to you. Going to the Lake?
Pug hugs :)

How fun and freeing it must be to hook "squiggles"....this makes me smile!

That background effect looks wonderful. And I bet it is fun to hook with lots of squiggles.
Skype is a wonderful tool, but the hair and jammies thing is a concern for me too :)

Wow, I'm slow going with an exact eyes would pop doing one like this.
But how unique!

Oh man...........I want to go to St. Peters Church with you, girlfriend!!!!!!! YUM! Takes me back to the days of my Hungarian husband. EW!!!!!!! His mother used to make the best Povititcia????? YUMMO. Oh and she made fabulous cabbage rolls too. And Chicken Paprikash. YUM.

I love you - but I sure won't skype with you. One of us would fall off the chair from laughing so hard at the other.

Oh yeh???? This means YOU are older than me. Praise the Lord!!!!! A 63 yr old friend? LOL! Gotta love our seniors, you know? LOL
