All images and text are the property of me, Alice. If it's my pattern, ask and I will make one available ~ if it's someone else's, I will direct you to that person. Thanks for honoring the creativity of myself and others!
My life is a busy one ~ my husband, Sonny, and I have a blended family of 6 kids, 5 of them married and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren! We have a building business and I am the Office Personnel, if you know what I mean!! I also have a small rug hooking business in my home studio, where I sell as-is wool and my own hand-dyed wool, beautiful frames and stands that my husband builds and some finished hooked pieces, etc. I would love to hook every day, all day, as I'm sure many of you would ~ but that's rarely possible!! Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll find A DAY IN THE LIFE ~ ~ ~ entertaining!!
Here is Rooster Pair in the space where it's going to live ~ the entry to the dining room end of the living/dining area of the house! It's a large rug ~ 29 x 50 ~ and it's going to be fabulous in that space! Friend MJ was here yesterday and was surprised at how large it was ~ she thought it was just a regular size rug. That's when I decided to let you know the size ~ I guess it could be deceiving in the photos. I hooked all the squiggles in and now only have background to fill in ~ woo hoo!
I spent a couple of days marbleizing wool this week and wanted to share the beautiful colors with you! I won't elaborate on each one, but if there are any you see that you would like, let me know by email email@example.com. They're quarter yard pieces at $12 a piece. They look like individual works of art to me and hooked into a rug, they give great variation of color without mixing and mushing wools together!
So that's it for today ~ I'm dying a pot of really pretty red ~ pictures to follow. Speaking of pictures, when I first posted, I get a message saying that I had run out of storage space on my Picasso Web Album and had to pay $5 to get additional storage. I was very surprised and it kept coming up, so I bit the bullet and voila! Immediately, I could post my photos ~ everything has a price, I guess! Have any of you encountered that before? Okay ~ I'm outta here! Have a great Easter weekend with your families or friends or just yourself! Ta ta!!
