A Variety

Hello Fellow Bloggers...Since I wrote my last post, my Brother, Prosper, passed away from kidney failure. It has been a rough road but in between, there was a happy time with our son, Dale, being sworn into office as MHA (Member of the House of Assembly) for the NDP party. While Prosper was ill, which was eight weeks, Dale was campaigning in our Provincial Election in St. John's, NL., where he resides and was successful in his endeavours. Needless to say, we are very proud of his efforts and hard work and I am sure he will continue to work hard for the people who had faith in him and trusted him enough to elect him as their member.

Enough said on those two important items.

I am posting a picture of my "Give Away" on my Facebook Page named: "Anne's Original Hooked Rugs". There is just one week left for those of you who would like to visit my page and click the "LIKE" Button on the top right of the page; your name will be automatically entered to be drawn for this 14"x14" Mummers wall hanging. A few of you have already done so...There is absolutely no commitment and I WILL post it to you wherever you live...I just started this new page as a Business one a short time ago and for my visitors I thought it a good gesture, on the advice of others, to do that. Do take the time to click...more people make it more interesting....

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American Friends...hope you are enjoying this wonderful day...We have plenty to be thankful for

Have You Forgotten Me?

Hi Everyone:

"Life" has gotten in my way over the past couple of months. My brother is ill and I have been away from Home for some time, off and on...Besides that, this time of year is really busy for us with Harvesting, Canning, etc., etc., etc.

I said some time ago that I was hooking a mat for a project and I would show it when the Exhibit was over. The Exhibit was at "The Five Island Art Gallery" in Tors Cove, Newfoundland. It was to show our Irish / Newfoundland connection and was held in September until October 21st. Some artists and guests from Ireland attended this great event but because of my brother's illness, I could not attend; however, I was pleased to have been given the opportunity to have my mat displayed among the others there. Although this picture does not do justice to it, I am posting it anyways. Some day I may learn to use the camera...I need lessons...any pointers? :) :)
