We woke up to a field of snow and cold winds blowing. We are so grateful for the snow and rain it is helping to heal the dry lands.
I drew up this little doodle of a very prim rooster and enjoyed hooking this little mat. I use to tell my kiddo's when they were little and going to school "Rise and Shine"....not something I enjoy doing really as I'm a night owl :)
On and off throughout the day flurries of snow and drops of rain fell.
I did make it outside to put out some bird seed and to feed the cat and her kittens that were keeping warm in Danny's shop. The laundry basket slowly filled with clean sheets and clothes as a warm pot of soup simmered on the stove.
In between a few baskets of laundry I found time to hook up more small little mats. Eight little pennies on a simple mat hooked with one wool for the pennies and one brown wool for the background made this one hook up fast.
A splash of blue found it's way onto this little rug and reminds me that spring is on the way. The little rugs I have made this week are all pretty small ranging from 9 x 12 up to 10 x 20 inches. I haven't made much of a dent in the scrap baskets but I sure have enjoyed hooking each of these.
It's time to find the needle and yarn and get busy binding...my least favorite of the process. My fingers go numb pulling the needle after awhile. Maybe a few will be bound in different ways just to break up the process.
More rain and snowflakes are on the way....so the crockpot will be filled with a new recipe soon and the wool dust will continue to fly!
