Checking In

Good Morning from Newfoundland, Canada.  Times are busy but enjoyable here. 

Last week, I canned Chili and Herring and am quite pleased that they both were very tasty.  Just getting ready for Hay Making time to have some quick foods available...

Of course I am busy at my rug hooking...I don't mind the wet days because then I can hook away and not feel guilty about NOT going outside. 

I have sent off four  pieces of my  work to a Museum in Nova Scotia, Canada, for display and on consignment.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I will receive a few nice comments.  :) 

This is a picture of one I am working on at the present time.  Please ignore those scribbles and scratches...that is the way I work...I make changes as I hook.  Sometimes it is difficult to see a certain part of my work and I have to go by guess...:0) However, persistence is my second name and I like challenges.  

Enjoy your day, everyone, and thanks for dropping by...

Spring Time is "Busy Time"

Spring has arrived early here in Newfoundland, Canada, at least where I live on the Burin Peninsula.  Vegetable Planting time and Lamb time... Sharing a few pictures of such..

Those containers, 20 each, contain  Onions and Carrots...the other some of the 40 drills of Potatoes that we have planted so far...Hopefully, I will be able to post some pictures later of the progress....
