And now I've lost it

Well, my "having it" was brief.  I woke up this morning and knew I'd lost it.  This old gal can't handle two big nights out in a row.  Lol.  Last night I went to a play put on by a local comedy troop.   It was great.  No, to be more accurate there is a better description - I laughed my ass off.   The play had an interesting was about swinging.

Hahaha, No not this kind of swinging.  The "alternative lifestyle" of swingers!   They handled it tastefully but extremely funny.  

This morning I finally opened up a new piece of burlap and drew out this pattern I have been dying to hook.   It's a Lori Rippey pattern, Red Belsnickle.

Sorry it's so dark and blurry but I just wanted to prove I really still was a hooker (despite the dust on my hook lately).  It is hooking up quickly.  I like that!   

Speaking of Christmas stuff, I found a channel on Sirius xm that is playing all Christmas music!  I've been listening to it for days.  I know my cousin Keltie will be horrified when she reads this ;).  I can't help it! 

Ok, time to get back to hooking the background. 


  1. What?!? Before December 1st??? Oh well, as Joy reminds me, I only control the holiday carol rules in our house, not in the rest of the world :-)

  2. Sounds like the play was pretty funny! I like the Santa pattern, glad you got the dust off your hook! Christmas music?! Slow it down girl, slow it down! lol

  3. Hi Kim, sounds like a great evening out......Love the Santa, happy you blew the dust of the hook, I really should to, Happy Hooking, Francine.

  4. Not too many of us old hookers can boast of going out two nights in a row and still find time to hook ... a santa, lol.
    It looks great.

    I bet I would have peed in my pant laughing watching that play.
    It's been crazy around here and Christmas music will have to wait for a while. I'm just not ready yet. It's coming way too fast.

  5. It will be so pretty when its done.

    I listen to internet radio on Itunes and they have Christmas stations on there and its free too

    Happy hooking

  6. You party girl!
    Love your Santa. It is a fun, quick hook.
    Hugs :)

  7. Enjoy the music. I'll bet it makes you feel good.

  8. Christmas music makes me happy.
    Love your santa.
    Woolie Hugs

  9. I love Christmas music! The more, the merrier! Love that Santa!

  10. I love the Santa too. And I have been listening to Sirius Traditions Christmas music for a few days now. I also have my Mom's foot and half tall ceramic Christmas tree that she made out and plugged in. It makes me happy.. :) It's probably 50 years old.

  11. I was wondering about Christmas music on XM a few days ago; didn't think they started until day after Thanksgiving. Thanks for the head's up!

  12. Well you party girl you:) lucky duck! sirus has two channels 4 and 17 I work with a handicapped young man who lives for this time of year. You are hooking a lot more than I am lately.

  13. Maybe you lost it, but atleast you still have your sense of humor! I've heard so many folks say they are decorating early this year and now you're listening to Christmas music...does everyone know something I don't? Just wondering!

  14. I too love to listen Christmas music...

  15. Party animal, hooker...fine, but Christmas music before December? No.

  16. I am looking forward to the "Sappy Christmas Movies" as my husband calls them. I listen to some Christmas music year round. Sometimes in the middle of July I will pull out a Christmas CD and enjoy.
