Pet News....

I haven't posted anything about my beautiful pets lately so today I decided I would....for those animal lovers out there, and I am sure there are plenty..
When the weather is "nasty" outside, this is how our pets enjoy it. I hook away and they snooze away the day. Hope you enjoy....Thanks for my new followers and DON'T FORGET MY VALENTINE GIVEAWAY TOMORROW....
Goldie likes to sleep atop the chair while Mocha sleeps below....cute!!

Mocha & Spedo rests on one bed at times;
however, Mocha becomes curious when a picture is being taken, sometimes, as he is very photogenic......:)

Spedo likes to rest his arm on the window sill and look outside and is happy he doesn't have to go out.

On Line Course

Well, I have myself committed to something now that I have no idea about....with regards to the wool, that is. As a lot of you may know, I use all types of recycled materials in my rugs. Deanne Fitzpatrick, of http://www.hookingrugs.com, has offered this On line course to the public. I delved right in there because she is my inspiration, besides being a fellow Newfoundlander..:) Ever since I discovered her online when searching for tips of rug hooking, I have followed her and bought each book that she has written plus a little of her materials. She hooks in a style that I like and do. When this beautiful package of different types of wool arrived, I drooled but just want to keep it "to look at"....it is just so wonderful looking. I do hope that I can learn to incorporate this type of wool into my rug hooking in the future. I will keep you posted on my progress, if there is, indeed, any...OMENERVES!!!

My latest Mat/ Wall Hanging

I am busily hooking away here but sometimes do not post a picture of a mat that I have already done but I will share this one (which I have done MANY times for people) that I did for a young woman from my hometown of Lord's Cove, Newfoundland, called "When Cod Was King". This mat has a heartfelt connection to her because her Dad was one of the Trap's Crew (as they were called) that brought in this huge load of cod fish in the more abundant years. This is a scene that will NOT be seen in my day because of the demise of the cod fishery here in my little Outport. Other members of her family has this mat ordered and I will make sure I will complete them later this year. There are just so many that I would love to do but can't seem to step away from the ones that I post because people see them and want to order...I have retired one already and this will be the second one that I intend to do just that with....There is no challenge in this one anymore.
