The Awakening

On a typical Monday morning you expect to be awakened by the shrill, aggressive buzz of the alarm clock.  But instead I was awakened by the exciting ringing of a cash register.....Cha Ching!

I love the Etsy app on the iPhone.  When you have a sale it alerts you with the sounds of a cash register. And that is the lovely sound that woke me up.  Happy Monday!!  One of the small sheep rugs I hooked in the Spring finally sold.

And that was the motivation I needed to get back to hooking.  Tonight I drew out a new pillow design.  No peeks yet but it's gonna be a HOOT.  (That's a hint in case you didn't catch it) 

I'm trolling the stash looking for the right wools.  Let the hooking begin!!

You even get them who are very hard to understand. i think I know what your new project is going to be . I won't say incase you want it to be a surprise. Hope everything is going as well as can be with your mom. Have a wonderful week. Hugs and prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
