It seems appropriate today to celebrate the color Gold. Canadian Olympians are on a bit of a gold rush. 13 gold medals so far, with hopefully number 14 this afternoon as the hockey game gets underway. (I hope I didn't just jinx it) While I normally don't get too excited about the Olympics, I am excited that Nova Scotia Hockey Hero Sidney Crosby could bring home the Gold Medal!
So I thought maybe if I hooked a little gold it might send out good vibes to our team. I haven't been able to settle on a new rug design so I decided to hook up this little one on the weekend. I added a little challenge to myself. I was going to hook this entire rug without buying any new wool. I had to use whatever I had in my stash. Now this may not seem like a big challenge but for a wool-a-holic like me ----it was tough.
In fact, Saturday after supper I was trying to settle on a color for the birdhouse. I wanted something else. I thought I'll check and see if Corinne is home and run over and grab something. I had 6 of the 7 numbers dialed when that stupid little voice in my head reminded me of my challenge. "You can't buy any more wool for this rug".
CRAP - I hate that annoying little women in my head. What a pain in the butt she is! LOL
I'm going to spend the afternoon hooking gold and flipping the channels back and forth to the big game.
