99 and a half (oops)

Well it looks like I found a lost draft post in the list so I'm 1 away from 100. Since I told you my last post was 99, I'm calling this one 99 1/2!
Last night I finished the Old Rose Chairpad. This is the project from Deanne Fitzpatrick's Workshop last week and is one of her designs. So cute, isn't it!
There is a very good reason why I posted a photo of this piece before I finished binding the edges......Its because I am impatient!
My Dye Queen, Corinne at Momz Wool created this awesome wool. Big bright splashes of color. I've been drooling over it for weeks and today I couldn't stand it any longer. I told her to bring it back to work after lunch. I can't wait to see what it looks like when its hooked!!! Sooooo, the old rose will have to wait a day or so because as soon as I finish this post I am grabbing the cutter!
And I had a nice surprise when I arrived home for supper. A batch of warm tea biscuits waiting on the table. Yummm. Today was a Respite Day for Mom, when a professional caregiver comes in to gives us a little break for a few hours. Mom couldn't have been very restless this afternoon, because John had time to make us that little treat. We are so lucky to have a resource for wonderful, thoughtful caregivers. We have 3 regulars who take turns each week.
If the weather forecast is correct, I might have some extra free time tomorrow. They are predicting a foot of that "white crap" to fall overnight plus a few more inches tomorrow. A snow day full of hooking would be OK!


  1. Very nice rug! That wool is absolutely the most wonderful thing! Don't you hate to cut it? I can't wait to see what you will do with it. I'm glad you have some help with caregiving duties Kim. Sure could use that here. I've had so much running with Mom lately. I'm also concerned that she get out of her apartment so I take her with me so she gets out. Since our winters are so blasted long here, and especially after having been through so much with her health I'm very worried about depression. Sometimes I think I'm the only one doing all the worrying though. Spring can't be far off can it?? Thinking of you. Cathy G

  2. Your rose is lovely and that piece of wool is to dye for. Can't wait to see what you hook out of it.
    Happy to hear you are getting some free time.

  3. I can't keep up with you this week, your like a whirlwind hooker, you go girl.

    Thanks for the wool comment, so that is a 'dying queen' and a 'tech god' all in one day, Gee I'm blushing.

  4. Kim, I love your chair pad ... I also love the colors of the wool and can't wait to see what you work it into ...maybe that blank piece of fabric ...LoL! Hve a great week.

  5. Yes Teri, I did use that blank piece of fabric! LOL
