This is Polly Minick and Lori Simpson's new book that debuted in France recently!  My copy just arrived yesterday and it is very worth ordering!!  It has beautiful pictures and great patterns for the rug hooker or the quilter!  A couple of the quilt patterns are even tempting to me! You can order it from their website ~  click on "Books" on their left sidebar  ~ I got mine in just a couple of days!!  There are definitely some rugs in there that are calling my name!!

Saturday, we went to the art show on the streets of Port Clinton and found these pretty hand-blown glasses! The young man who made them was quite talented and had some beautiful things.  I took his card but,  of course, I can't find it right now.

This beautiful planter was a gift from one of our lake friends that came to visit a few weeks back!  It works out great as the centerpiece for our deck table!!  Since we've had so much rain, it's just grown and grown!  A nice shot of color when I look outside!!  Thank you, Chris and Mike!!

We had such a fun weekend ~ out with our friends ~ going here and there!  Went to some really nice places and we also hit a couple of not-so-swell looking places (but the waitress is so nice at the one, that it makes it a pleasure to go there ~ she remembered what we ordered from being there only twice!).  We have fun and can be comfortable anywhere from a dive bar to the swankiest of the swanky!!!  We're like chameleons ~ blending into our surroundings!!

All day today, was office work and I would really like to hit the hooking room tomorrow afternoon!!  We shall see!!  Hope you all are doing something fun ~ at least part of the time!!  Ta ta!

I like that you take time to have fun like I used to. Now it's work, work, work and not much play.

I bet that there are some tempting patterns that soon will be rugs.

How nice of your lake friends to give you a nice planter for your outdoor table. It looks so healthy. We've had so much rain here too and it's still raining.

I'm a bit of a chameleon too and adapt very well to most situation and people that comes my way.
I guess that I find people facinating.

I love, love those blown glasses. It make a summertime drink taste better.
Hope the sun comes out soon.

Received my copy a few days ago and am loving it. I ordered it from Polly and Laurie's etsy store and got a surprise when it arrived.
The book had been shrink wrapped at the printers. So, these two came up with a laminate sticker of the rug on the front page, autographed by them both. I just placed it over the front page. I think I know own all their pattern books.
