January Catch Up

I started a new little savings account
my cats NEED a catio
like this one 

Melrose taking over the hooking frame

another quilt added to the list
of pieces I must stitch

my latest hooked rug

adding to the February No Spend on supplies
sell 10 items from around the house 
$100 grocery budget
these additions will be a challenge
especially with my empty pantry, fridge and freezer

ended up being too easy

Cats, Houses and Wool

Olivia has gone crazy
for bird and squirrel videos...
Melrose enjoys them too, especially all the chirping

house blocks heading to California
for the wonderful folks
turning them into quilts
for Paradise fire victims

it was fun picking out the fabrics

A chilly day in Ohio
perfect time to dye some wool
one pot on the stove
Barb and Emma Lou's

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...

Happy New Year's Eve!

it's been raining all day here in Ohio
no complaints from me
it could be snow
I've a few more hours left at work
praying anyone drinking is not driving

I've been away from blogging for a bit
so there is lots to share next year

No Santa?!

a sweet Santa image found on Pinterest
of all the rugs I've hooked
I can't remember hooking a Santa

maybe I should say finishing a Santa 
a few have been begun and reversed hooked

so tomorrow 
there will be a Santa on the frame

have you hooked Santa?
more than one ?

Freebie Snowmen

this is the free version

looking through my old doodles the other day
for a rug swap design
I love to hook snowmen!
 I just don't want to own anymore snowman things
or mostly anymore things at all
still on my long journey
to minimalism

this is the free version

these are very rough doodles
nothing like they will look when I hook them
I encourage you to use them and adapt them
as always
give credit to me for my designs

this is the free version

so this is the fellow I chose to hook
tomorrow I will share with you
the finished hooked rug

the "new improved" version
is available for $10 
on red dot
14" x 14"
shipping included to USA

proceeds to my local
two and four legged charities

Happy Sunday!

kanknchester on eBay

 just can't get the hang of blogging
from my phone

so I do some from the phone
some from my Kindle...

this should be my last eBay post
for the year
will be happy if I raise some
$$$ for Angels For Animals

they hold a special place in my heart
for having Chester to rescue
