Happy Fathers Day

Hoping everyone out there had a wonderful Fathers day either :  Spending time with your Dad if he is close by, talking with him on the phone if he's further away, or just remembering the good times if your Dad has passed like mine.  I had a quiet time to reflect on my Dad today. It put a smile on my face, and I hope no matter what way you spent it, you had a really great day too!

Just wanted to share my rug with you too.  I was able to finish the top this past Thursday. I just kept hooking and hooking.  Very happy with the results. Hope I can get the bottom part to turn out like I have planned in my head.  Wanted to pick up the hook this weekend, but had other plans. 

My son and his girlfriend came over on Saturday for a picnic.  And I finally got to meet Lake's mom.  She came also.  We all had a nice time.  Verna left after a few hours. She lives about an hour away.  But Craig and Lake stayed quite a long time.  I truly enjoyed every minute of their stay.  They don't come over very often, so this was a real treat!

George came down stairs this morning to a table set for a King.  Nicole asked me the other day if I had saved the menu she had made last year for him. Geesh, silly question.  Of course I did!  So I got it out and she had it on the table with his place setting.  I was still in bed.  Imagine that lol!  They had their alone time.  Craig celebrated Fathers day with him yesterday while he was here.  I think George enjoyed his weekend :).

This coming Friday  is Craig's 23 Birthday!  He was talking about going out to dinner on Thursday evening.  Will have to see how George's workload goes in the beginning of the week.  But we'll celebrate it somehow!

Have a fantastic week ~~

Kathy, I love your rug. That's a great pattern. Is that your own design? I love your color choices. I have a rug I'm working on right now. I'll try to post a picture later this week.

Oh Sharon, no it's not my design lol. It is a Lori Brechlin design that was adapted by Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Designs. Wish I could take credit ;).
Look forward to seeing the rug you are working on!!

Hi Kathy,
Glad you had a good day with Craig and Lake and her Mom. It just makes you happy when you can spend time with your kids, doesn't it?
Happy Father's Day to George!
Your rug is perfect! You are really getting close to finished. Do you have the next project in mind???

I just LOVE your rug! Your background is phenomenal. I love the variation of wool. I wish I was that good at color choices...sigh. Maybe in my next life. (Q: Gee, what do you want to be when you grow up? A: I want to be the best hooker around!)
What a wonderful weekend you had. Spending time with family can be so rewarding.
Pug hugs :)

Hi, Kathy.
I read your blog weekly and enjoy it very much. You have a beautiful family. I can relate to your m-i-l situation as my mother is in a nursing home w/dementia; my f-i-l still lives by himself in MN w/some assistance. Tough part of life but we have no choice but to navigate all of it!
Your rug is lovely and is so lively. It's making me thing that I "need" that pattern.
I've been hooking since 2003 and it's THE BEST. Made some wonderful friends through it...most of whom I would never have met otherwise.
Be well. Oh...enjoy your music selection as well. Sometimes I just play it in the background while I'm here at work.

Hi Kathleen, and thanks for reading my blog. I'd love to know where you are in Central NJ. I was born and raised in NJ. Lived in Hamilton Twp. Can't get more central than that lol. And also who do you hook with? So glad you love the rug hooking. Would love to see some of your work!! Hope to hear from you.
