Did I ever mention our lakeside home??? We live on Limberlost Trail, so I call it Lake Limberlost. Just joking, it is only waterfront property in the winter/spring! Yep, we had a bit too much rain/snow melt........ Maybe it will freeze so I can go ice skating! Thankfully, we are safe, there is a little hill there, I have only seen the water come up onto the basketball court once, and that is still far from the house. If you see the bottom photo taken in the summer, that is how it supposed to look.
Fun to pretend we are lakeside though, better than thinking of how the river simply overflowed. LOL!

I may have already mentioned this, but before I sold hand hooked items, patterns, and such on ebay, I used to sell my sewn (hand and machine) items on ebay and at craft shows. They were actually not always sweet though...lol. I think I made every kind of vegetable and fruit out of muslin, lots of painting, sanding, grubbing, etc.. Fun, but....... this was before rug hooking totally captivated me! Sometimes, I like to revisit these things in my hooking projects. Here I have a lil' Easter Thyme sampling of Peep bunnies for you! Once I finished assembling these, I sprayed them with an opal spray glitter for a bit of vintage sparkle! It adhered to the wool very well.
Here we have the chocolate hearts! I visited my mom last night at the bakery where she works, and there they were! I knew I had not imagined these...LOL! Just as pretty as I remembered. I guess they don't look much like the hearts I hooked...lol! That is how ideas are though, we have our own interpretation and way of re-creating what we see. That is what makes our art and all types of art so much fun! The uniqueness and individuality of it all!
Still busy with orders, and some new patterns, but I did manage to dye some wool tonight, so more dye adventures soon!! Wishing you dreams come true, a passion for life, and happy hooking always! Cathy
