This large rug was on display at Sauder and made quite a splash!
Gail Dufresne is the designer and she hooked it ~ one of my favorites at the show!

I'm happy to say that Gail is going to teach on another rug hooking cruise that we're going on, the end of September!  Pat Murdoch is the organizer and it sounds like it's going to be lots of fun!  Rug hooking excursions at several of the ports ~ Sonny and I are looking forward to cruising to Nova Scotia  on the Norwegian Dawn! 

Hopefully, I'll be doing some blogging along the way!  I'm blogging via Blogpress on my phone and it doesn't always cooperate with me, the operator!! 

Hope all is well in your world!


Good grief ~ as I look at my last two posts THAT ARE ALMOST THE SAME,  I think I scare myself!  I really wanted to share all that ~ a lot!

My friend Heather hooked this cute cat rug ~ pattern by Jane Augenstein. This is Heather's second rug and she's on a roll! Sent her home with a pattern I drew for her and the wool to get it started!

Thus is my newest project! I love sheep rugs! Pattern by Kathy Graybill. I haven't hooked all summer ~ Sauder inspired me!

Yesterday, I made pillowcases for Luci and Luke! I have a bunch more to do for the other grands. They were easy and didn't take long ~ I had the pattern and the flannel for Luke's for probably ten years! I'm a slow starter!

Thanks for stopping by ~ since I haven't blogged regularly for so long, I'm happy to still have readers!

My friend, Heather, hooked this Jane Augenstein pattern. It's her second rug and I'm very proud of my student! She took home a new pattern that I drew for her ~ can't wait to see how it progresses!

This afternoon I made Miss Luci a pillowcase ~ she picked the material several weeks ago but it takes Grandma a while to get motivated! Also made one for Luke! Now I'll need to make pillowcases for the rest of the grands!

We had a nice afternoon ~ school starts next week so our fun days will be over. When they have days off from school, we'll make a plan.

Summer's coming to it's end ~ it went so fast!

Hope you're enjoying your summer!

This weekend, friends Kit and Bill invited us to attend the Port Clinton Yacht Club annual pig roast!  The entertainment was the Island Doctor and he was checking out Kit's heart ~ she appears to be just fine!

Friends Diane and Greg went, too ~ we had lots of laughs for sure!

This is Mr. Kitty helping with office work this past week!  Doesn't he look sweet? He loves the printer and jumps right up there to watch it run.  A couple of years ago, he jammed up my printer with his paw and I had to get a new one.  This one is paw proof!

We also went to a very lovely brunch at the Catawba Island Club for our friend, Karen's birthday!  There were eleven of us and what a great time we had!

I haven't been blogging very much ~ hard to get back to it but I'm trying.  We've had a busy summer and a little cataract surgery thrown in.  We didn't get to our lake haven in June until the last week ~ two weddings, a show that we did, and a trip to Seattle for Sonny and Brian to work on my son's new/old house!  I haven't hooked a loop in I don't know when,  but trying to get back to it. And getting back to blog reading!

Hopefully, there are still some readers left ~ I appreciate those that commented yesterday ~ you let me know I'm not alone!

Have a great day ~ the weather is beautiful here in Ohio!
