Where have I been?

No where really.  Just being lazy somedays, and somedays finding things to do. The blog has been so far from my mind, and every time I thought about it, I just didn't feel like sitting down to do it.  But I'm back for this week at least :). 

The hook ins have been fun as usual.  This week I have pictures to share of some finished pieces. You always see them in the works, so here are a couple that are done!

Sherri finished these 2 !  ....

Nancee finished her Fraktur!

Didn't want to forget to get a group shot... although hard to do when everyone isn't sitting down lol.  Nancee is starting a new one. Will get a shot of it next week so you can see the full thing. Such a great design!

From last week... Margo received a gift from her Secret Pal... A nice beach towel and tulips.

Another finished piece by Amy!

Her mom Marilyn is doing a great job with this pattern.  Joanne, look at all the color you helped her pick out! She is really enjoying it :)

Deb is moving along on her dancing rabbits.

And here is what happens when you get ALL the way to the hook in and remember everything except the rug you are working on!!  Diane bought a new pattern to start lol.  I think her flying bunny will be done in the next few weeks!

Nancy working on a small fine cut piece.

Sherri working on some hit and miss for the next month update

Genny is another one who finished her Fraktur piece... (makes me want to get mine out and work on it!)

Barb finished another quilt piece... Joanne she wanted you to see!!

And who is to say that cats are the only ones who like to sit on top of hooking frames.  Was laughing so hard last week when I came back to sit down and hook.  Bo didn't want me to I guess LOL.

So Easter came and went. What a Beautiful day it was. Church was wonderful in the morning and the rest of the day was spent with family..   I had everyone here, and did all the cooking the day before. What a joy to be able to relax the whole day! 

I have finished 2 pieces for the next update on PrimitiveHandmadesMercantile and am winding down on my 3rd piece.  I'm actually ahead of the game this month. Hoping to finish the last piece up soon. The next update will be next Friday! Don't forget to take a look!

The weather is going to be getting warmer and it will be time for the weeding. When my back went bad, I was disappointed that I couldn't take advantage of the nice weather to do it then.  Now the weeds are really big! I also have to do my mil's weeding too. Hard taking care of 2 homes. Hoping we can sell her house this year. Would bring such a relief of not having to deal with it anymore.  George is now interviewing Realtors. So keep us in your prayers that this year is the year it sells!

This weekend will be spent doing chores, although my house got a good cleaning right before Easter. Still need to do windows! Sure wish I had the kind that tilt in!!  Going to start today with some of the things that I can get out of the way.  Then tonight I will take time for me.....

Many changes are taking place in my life, and I'm welcoming each new one that comes along. Sometimes it means giving up one to accept another. Even if that means waiting for the next to happen. I'm ok with that, and I'm letting God direct me. Being still, listening and obeying even when it feels like it's the hardest thing to do. All I know is that everything is happening for a reason, even if I don't understand it now. I will some day!

George and I are counting down the days to our cruise.  It's at the end of this month and we cannot wait! We will be celebrating 25 years of Marriage this November and we chose to do it now.  It was on our minds for our 20th, but we couldn't because Nicole was too young to be left alone.  We are going to the Bahamas  for a week ! :)   And we couldn't be more excited!!!  Trying to make lists of what I still need to do..

Well, I hope I have made some people happy by updating again :)   There have been a few who have hinted about me being absent lol.  

Have a Terrific Weekend everyone ~~  I know I will :)

Hurray for all the finishes and updates! Bo sure looks like he needs a hug! It seems there significant changes going on in everyone's life recently... and I can not agree with you more when you say "Everything happens for a reason"... I've been saying that to myself for quite some time...

Hi Kathy, I'm all excited for you . Going on a cruise in the Bahamas with your husband will be awesome.

Thanks for the update on what you're doing. You are always so very busy, it will be nice getting away from all the busyness. Change happens to everyone, nothing stays the same.

Kathy ~
What a wonderful trip to look forward to! Congrats on almost 25 years :)
I know what you mean about taking care of 2 houses. I still have my mom's and it's been almost 2 years. I am finally sorting through everything. Not a pleasant chore.
And as always, thanx for the rug show.
Pug hugs :)
