Cats and Books


just finished hooking this
 the photo makes that green blob
in the left lower corner stand out
to be fixed asap

not sure what's next on the frame


taking inspiration from the journal writers
I drew up this simple page 
to keep track of the first month
of my 2019
No Spend Challenge

with enough supplies and books to span decades
plus all the UFO projects
it's time for me to get serious...



Happy Birthday to my dear Mom in Heaven
she is loved and missed every day
I am blessed with all the quilts
she stitched with love for me
and endless memories to share with my sisters...

Great little rug. Like your motivator to stay on track with your monthly goal.

Sometimes a photo with a flash shows things which aren't a problem with the naked eye. Bet it looks great in person.

Oh my, I'll bet I couldn't last a month even tho I also have a lot of supplies, a pattern stash, wool out the ying yang but no UFOs. Oh, yeah I do....have that darn star quilt started years ago.

Miss my mom too so know what you're going thru.

Well, I've already spent in 2019 though I have enough supplies to last 3 lifetimes. I ordered 2 patterns from Cammie Bruce ๐Ÿ˜Š
Happy birthday to your mom in heaven. I miss my dear mom, too.

The rug is wonderful and nice to hook for yourself too.
I am trying to do the same thing, I have lots of supplies, but it seems when I go to make something, I never have enough, lol. I will get creative though and plan on making a spring runner first. I will treasure my quilt and the memories of your mom from the stories you shared and the things she had you send me.
