And in between all that we had a family funeral. So the last 3 days have been busy with all that goes along with such events. Family arrived from away and have been popping in and out etc. It was great to see some of them again, but the circumstances were not great. Seems like you get to a certain age and funerals are the only time you see some people.
So not much time for hooking, but I did manage to get some fabric to get ready to draw a new pattern. Maybe tonight. I guess we will see how the rest of the day goes before I make any promises! For now its time to get the vegetables ready for supper.

This is another Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern. There is a table close to the door at Deanne Studio Shop where she always seems to have a handful of smallish patterns. And lately I have been attracted to that table. This is the 3rd one I have grabbed before leaving and I have another one waiting to start.
I have 2 designs in my head I REALLY want to hook but I soooo hate drawing them out. So I make an excuse to pop into Deanne's and grab something from the table until I can get the mojo to draw mine.

Isn't it gorgeous --- I'll put it on my bed after I finish Spring Cleaning. (Whenenver that will be!) This has been a crazy weekend so far here at "Grand Central Station". That is what I call our house. We always have a lot of company and seem to have even more since Mom got sick. Its nice that everyone wants to help out and check in but sometimes............Enough already!
I walked in the door Friday afternoon (after a very busy work week) to find 8 people sitting around the kitchen. We have 2 living rooms and a den but in Nova Scotia everyone sits in the kitchen! I was tired and hungry and not overly impressed. Naturally none of them wanted to stay for supper but they didn't want to leave the kitchen so I could make supper! When they all finally wandered out a little later I thought I'll cheat and order Chinese. Its quick and I'm starving.
I picked up the order, brought it home and it smelled so good (did I mention I was starving?) and there is no friggin rice! Arrrgh but by now I don't care, too hungry and fed up, so I'll just eat what I have. Then my phone rings - its the Chinese place. They just found my rice. Wow - I can't believe they bothered to call. I was kind of impressed. I told them it was OK, that I would swing by and pick it up later. Chinese leftovers are good around 10pm.
Now that I'm fed, I am in a better mood. And then I get a message - 3 magical little words.........."I have wine" LOL Its from Corinne. So I respond with 3 words........"On my way". So we sat in her house, drinking wine, looking at paint swatches, and bitching about our week. Definately the highlight of my Friday.
