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

Hooking and Gifts

this is not the rug I'd planned to hook
story of my life...
controlled scrappy
cutting some as I go
using what I can from the worm baskets

so far the plan is chevrons on 2 sides
words in the middle...

early Christmas shopping for my
Secret Santa gifts for a local child

so far I found these 2 books
some Shopkin and Fingerling toys
next up are shoes and an outfit

I'd like to receive another name
will have to sell a rug or two first...
I do go overboard because that's how I am
a basket of food for the family
maybe even a gift card 

Have a great day and please

Bob and Rose

circa early 1900s

finally found something I feel like hooking
this gorgeous rug has inspired me

if you know me
you can guess the first change I'll make...

there is another rug on the dreaming board
transferring from idea to linen is posing some issues
it's going to be stewing around in my brain for a while...

Recent Hooking and Swap

swap quilt from Marian Edwards
of Australia
top photo ~ 
is from a few days ago
the rug is now hooked and whipped
needs some wool strips to finish
about 24 x 46
makes me want to hook larger rugs

bottom photo ~
just finished hooking today
pattern by Red House Wool Studio
Harvest Blessings
15.5 x 19.5

so a few weeks ago my desktop crashed
have been using my phone or laptop
for most things
still getting the hang of blogging on laptop

a few more days left of my vacation
as always no painting was done
given the choice between hook/needle and brush
I am never going to get my walls repainted

at least they are clean
as are the baseboards and all the trim
so I did a little prep work
that should count for something...

wishing all my friends
sweet dreams tonight
and a joyful tomorrow

Recent Hooking

I got this rug out again
going a different direction than originally planned
however I hook it
my NC sister says it's hers...

swap rug
using designs from the 
Cheri Payne patterns in my stash

photo taken before finally binding and pressing
will share the little quilt I receive when it gets here

please don't share the image of this rug
am not sure if she received it yet
