Still Hooking Away

chairpad four
there is a definite dent in the worm stash now
blues are getting low in the shades I need

the red goes on and on

this face
he cannot believe I stopped brushing him

I've been rounding up wool
making stacks and bundles 
doodling up some designs on linen

planning to get the patterns on etsy next week
the wool on Facebook:
The Wool Pantry Rug hooking and Fiber Selling Group 

shooting for Wednesday and Thursday

if I ever find those Halloween chalkware pieces
I'll list those too

darn work gets in the way of everything

today I'm off but will spend most of my time with Mom
it's bingo day!

they win a quarter per game
you'd think it was high stakes the way they carry on
today it's a quarter and a prize
one of the local home health care organizations
brings in a big basket of prizes to pick from...
candy, word game books, lotion, decorations
it's a lot of fun for the residents...

I usually buy packs of gum to pass out to my "friends"
they've seen me every day for nearly 3 years now
I make sure to learn everyone's name
they know mine too

they know they can ask me for help anytime
mom doesn't mind sharing me
(most days)

Hope you can be a little ray of sunshine in your world today
so many people are aching for 
a friendly face
something I see daily in the ER

I love this pattern and your colors, Kelley!! I just love stars! Bingo is fun and it's great they play for real money...even if it's only a quarter! Have fun and enjoy your day with your mom and your friends!

Funny, because when I saw a new one started figured it must be chair pad number 7 or so. Geez, hope that I'm quick on the trigger when you post your sale items. Be sure to provide a link for us on your blog.

Looking forward to your destashing and patterns in your Etsy shop.
I hope mom had a good day.
Hugs :)

I know that feeling, I need to clean out my piles and make some money so I can redecorate the house, time to get moving on a cleanup and redo. Need to think of a design and fabrics for a table cloth to go with the mats, really like the blue shades with the mix of colors, will brighten up that area. I hope I can get myself on an even keel this year and maybe do some visiting at the homes here, so many who have no visitors.

I am sure your mother's friends appreciate you time to know their names.
love your chair pad.
