Hook ~ Punch and a Warm Day!
I've been hooking on the LJ Fibers rug and just about have it all hooked. I hope to finish it up this evening and get it steamed....then on to the binding. It's been so relaxing working on this one.
Well if you know me I never have one project going....so I drew up a simple little flower and decided to do another oxford punch. I got this much done in 1 hour....so if you own an oxford punch needle and have not tried it yet....give it a try. This one I have been doing with wool strips in a #6 size.
Here's the free pattern if you would like to make it. Feel free to use it however you choose.
Today the temperatures soared into the mid 60's and tomorrow looks to be about 70. Sloan and I made it to a nearby lake and he enjoyed playing at the park and feeding the geese and ducks.
The weathermen are forecasting freezing temperatures with snow, sleet, and ice for Monday and Tuesday....so guess we better enjoy the next couple of days. We do need some moisture since we are in a high fire alert. It's been one dry winter unlike so many of you that have had way too much snow!
