Hooked Flag and Spring Cleaning

Let me just say I would rather be pulling wool loops and hooking any day than cleaning. I took a break last night and drew off a pattern of a simple flag and with one fat quarter of wool and a few strips of yellow in no time I had this small simple flag mat finished.

Here is the fat quarter of wool I used. It worked great for this little flag mat don't you think?

This doesn't happen very often. Cleaned off all the kitchen counters and have supper ready to go for the night.....Hoping to find some crafting time tonight and tomorrow night!

Dusted and picked up but not for long....We will have to have some toys out before too long!

Almost need the fireplace going today since we are having a cold snap....and here it is May!

Still need to do a bit of decluttering on this area.

Keepsakes and quilts.

A look down the hallway....the laundry is almost all done for the day.....hooray!

The guest bathroom.

Our bedroom ....boy I could use a nap!

The eleptical that sits in our bedroom that I really need to be using?!?! Do you see the crocodile on the patchwork quilt on the chair :)

The wall in our bedroom that still needs some decorating.

The master bath....Two restroom areas yes a Cowgirls room and a Cowboys room!



And behind the curtain on the right a wheelchair accesible shower for when we get OLD! The hope chest I made in High School wood shop class.

The guest/toy room....lots of toys for one little boy!

Well Sloan and I served lunch to the work crew today here at the house and we are exhausted so time to go watch a little Scooby Doo and maybe grab a quick nap. Hope your enjoying your Monday whatever you may be doing!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Wow Ginger, what a huge house you have ... I really LIKE the idea of the "cowboy - girl" toliet area.
But, heres a question for you ... where are all of your beautiful hooked mats and rugs?
Cold here as well ... I think it's call "Blackberry Winter"
Have a great week.

Teri....I do have a few hooked rugs throughout the house many are in my craft room. Many of the rugs I have sold or given away then many still need bound :)

Laurie~ Yes my Cowboy does clean his own room! Even got the littlest cowboy helping with chores :)

Thanks to everyone on the lovely compliments on our farmhouse. We have been very blessed.
