Maiden Voyage ~ Day Two

And what a voyage ~ I typed an entire post ~ tried to add a picture ~ saved the post into a 'draft' and have spent the last hour trying to edit the draft and publish it!! I finally printed the draft so i could re-write it and deleted it altogether and am starting new!! I'm going to master this blog thing and not let it master me!! So here we go again ~ ~ ~ ~ By the way, this would be a typical DAY IN THE LIFE experience for me!! yikes!!

Thanks to all of you who have sent comments and helped make me feel comfortable about doing this blogging thing! Today started out like a 'typical' day for me ~ I went to the hair salon for my 9:30 a.m. Wednesday every-three-week appointment and the only girl working said "what are you doing here?" Um ~ I'm here to get my gray hairs colored and cut ~ Your girl is on vacation, she replied!!!! Hm ~ ~ ~ I actually kind of knew that she was going to Florida but as it related to my hair appointment, it didn't compute. And she never said that I needed to reschedule this week because she wouldn't be there. The girl who was there kindly offered to do my hair later in the day, if I didn't mind coming back and I took her up on the offer. I guess my point in relating this dumb story is that years ago I would have reacted differently and not be very happy about being forgotten ~ but I'm learning that my reaction to a situation is what controls my feeling about it and that accepting the situation as it was, and blessing the fact that the other girl would take care of it ~ made it not a big deal at all!! I'm hoping to figure this all out before I leave this planet and I'm also hoping I've got a good long time to work on it!!!

Last night, I only got about 40 minutes hooking time in on Mr. Catfish, so I really won't post that little bit of progress. But ~ I will show you a proddy sheep rug that my friend/customer did in a proddy class that I taught! She brought it over yesterday (which by now is really two days ago since it's nearly 1 in the morning) and she really did a great job on it! It's a pattern that I drew especially for proddy but it certainly could be a hooked sheep as well!

Hopefully, I can add the picture successfully this time and instead of hooking tonite, I think I'll give in and say nighty night!!

The cute little sheep pattern makes me almost want to learn how to proddy. Do you sell the pattern with instructions?


Alice ~ Folk Art Primitives said...

Hi Trisha ~ yes, i do sell the pattern ~ $45 on linen, and I have the proddy tools also ($25.00) and I can include some instructions ~ since I'm guessing you're too far away to come for a class!!! Thanks for asking!!!

Love, Love this rug! I'v done a little proddy, and it's on my hooking list to really "go" with it on another piece.
