Another Framed Mat

I have to share this great picture with you all.....I think the frame does wonders on our work...this is a mat titled "Hay Making in Outport Newfoundland" that I hooked some time in the past and my cousin {who is very artistic with acrylic painting} bought at Christmas time and he had it framed....I like it VERY MUCH.....

Blog Total

I am really excited blog has hit the 5000 mark...Thanks to all of you who have looked in on me.. I like looking at others as well....Sometimes I do not is because there is not much interesting to say... {I think someone else at some point said the same thing}... I would appreciate your all continuing to look in every now and again and even leave a little comment... :)

My day is busy today with bread baking, hooking in between and visiting the barn to check on the little newcomers. We have two more sets of triplets added to the flock...It is such a Marvellous day today...I guess a "brewer" for the freezing rain and snow tomorrow...Keep our fingers crossed that we will not have another power outage...we don't miss electricity until it goes; I guess it is the same for other things in our lives; therefore, we should always appreciate what we have....

Freezing Rain

Even though freezing rain is not great....especially when one is in the middle of canning "Pepper Steak" and the power goes out for two hours....BLAH!!!, this picture shows the beauty of it...Everything is coated with ice and the seas are really, really high....but I know there are a large number of people would give anything to see this sight....enjoy!!

New Design

My latest design is done from a photograph I took some time ago of our Church & Community Hall. As our "Come Home Year" celebrations are being held this year in August, I decided I would hook a few mats of things concerning my community.

I post this picture with a heavy heart today because it is my dear Mother-in-Law's Birthday; she would have been 92 years old today. Each time I designed a new mat, I would take it to let her see what I had done and of course, she always marveled at my work. She was very proud of the fact that she taught me how to hook many years ago, and I am so appreciative of that. According to her, there was never a thing I could change to make it look better. I hope she can still see what I am doing....R.I.P. dear Mother.....

We know when "Spring has sprung" when we see this beautiful sight...It is indeed a busy time for my DH and I because of those little critters coming along and it is a wonderful feeling....the sound of those little innocent lambs makes one's heart flutter...At this time, we have a set of twin and two sets of triplets; a good start being that last season the first sheep that lambed borned five lambs and all were still born...these sights are very disheartening....let's hope we continue to have good luck with them this year but more especially for the mother's.
