Adding the Gold

adding the gold definitely helped this mat
thinking it will good with blue in place of the green
I'm really fond of the blue star with red background
so not sure what the next mat will be

this one needs some fabric stitched to the end and bottom
sort of drew it too close to the edge
I need to learn how to set the zig zag stitch  
on "Mom"s" sewing machine
mine hasn't been touched in the years since I moved here

three years and all I've done is straight stitch...
I still have to get the book out to thread it every time!

hooking on these chair pads for Debbie is a lot of fun
no pressure
not sure if it will lead to continued hooking when they are done
my wool is not in the right place

no matter how I've tried to organize it
it's not comfortable to use
does that make sense?

most of the time Mom knows who I am
sometimes she thinks I'm "the other Kelley"
as long as she knows she is loved
I am happy

Wishing you a sweet day!

Love the gold, adds just the right pop of color. I really think that my dad is "in there". I still say I love you, even though I haven't had a response in over a year...you are a good daughter.
