And I'm Hooked Again

there are no words for how much I love my Talon Frame!
I purchased the large floor frame
hooking are 12 x 27

pretty happy with how it's turning out
Debbie ...
do you think this will fit in your new room somewhere?
sure hope so

sorry about the blur
Melrose is clinging to some of the last wool on the bed
I've moved it back to baskets, sorted by color
easier to hook with
 this guy misses sleeping on wool mountain
even if he has a blast attacking wool strips
under the frame
when I have a hooking slump
it's usually a geometric that gets me hooking again
these fun colors for Debbie's beach room helped too!

Hooking, At Last

my most favorite hook
Nancy Miller pencil hook
(this is where I found the photo)
my most favorite hook
Nancy Miller pencil hook
I use the "fine" size
most of my strips are size 8.5 and up
never a problem
one of my hooks got a lot of use...

Nothing At All

my new Talon frame is amazing
such a huge area for hooking
if only
today I started three rugs 
 then dismissed each one
you know when it just doesn't feel right
not my own design
or Woolen Memories or even Magdalena...
looked over my Maria Barton patterns
maybe tomorrow

Friday the 13th

doing a test layout of my quilt
 Mom doesn't care for all the mixed up blocks
says I should keep it for myself
( she was in a mood)

Dorothy is napping...she's 99

Ann is napping...just turned 95

Mom seldom naps...92
she's always planning her escape...

I'm quite a lot younger
and will nap anytime I get the chance

Talon Frame

there is a new hooking frame in my house
waiting to leave the box...
but first I need to get my house in order
that will take a few days
in between work and visiting mom

Happy Friday the 13th!
