This and that~~

Wow, Friday already?  This week has flown by.  Have really been enjoying my  Birthday month so far! :)  Spent the day of my Birthday going to lunch with Nancee and then hitting a couple antique shops. Came home with a few little treasures from one along with some Wonderful Birthday gifts from Nancee.  Had dinner (pizza) with hubby George, and he even ventured out to the store while I was gone and got some cupcakes for the evening dessert! :)

I recently Joined a Facebook group created by Lori Brechlin called The Out of Hand Rug Hookers Group .  It's growing quickly!  Lori was very generous and gave a free pattern for a challenge.  Santa Claws, a sweet little Christmas Cat.  I thought why not? Could make it any size, but I left mine small.  Completed size is 9 1/2" x 11".  Very quick to hook up!

Went to the Thursday hook in at Grant Street yesterday.  It was hopping with some new customers which is always nice to see.  Supporting your local shops is what keeps them in business!  
Diana finished hooking her Rooster and was working on whipping it yesterday.

Deb finished hooking her Uncle Sam

Mindy is a new rug hooker to the group and is working on her background.

Teresa is "happily" working on her coiled snowmen.

I didn't get any more shots of the day. Linda had gotten a cake for the "recent" Birthday girls.  Barb, Joan and myself. Sorry Joan wasn't able to make it to the hook in. Thank you Linda, it was delicious!  Right after the cake, I had to leave to come home and make sure George was ok and make him some dinner. He has a check up today from his surgery last week.  He is feeling much better today than he has!! Great sign :).

Going to get a new cross stitching project out later on today to start working on. My goal is to have something to be able to pick up in the evening while watching tv. I'm sooo tired of sitting like a lump on a log. I just need to "do it"!

Hope you all get creative today!!

Boy you are a fast hooker to have Lori's cat done already. It turned out really cute. Thanks for sharing.

You did a great job on Santa Claws!
One of these days I'd love to make it back to Grant Street.
Continued birthday wishes.
Hugs :)
