A good day

It's Friday, it was sunny and some snow was melting.  By late morning I was restless so I begged for the afternoon off.  Yippee!  I'm starting to get into our new routine and I had several hours of free time with now worries or commitments.  

What's a girl to do?  I raced around and finished a couple of errands and then went home to watch the Olympics.  (Big game this afternoon).  I had my rug frame on my lap and my team was playing well.   After a few minutes I thought something was missing.  Hmmm, what was it??

Well, you can't watch hockey without a cold beer!  


Hockey, beer and hooking.  Now THAT is a well spent Friday afternoon!

And I finished the hooking on the Vintage Hearts Primitive pattern "Here's My Heart".  I'll do the binding tomorrow morning.  I love this pattern. 


Happy Friday all.

  1. It looks fantastic and think you were given good advice about the echo or 'ripple' effect around the people. It looks great; should be easy to bind and then onto the next fun project.

  5. What a sweet little rug. That Lauren is a brilliant hooker, it worked out beautiful.
    Ooh a long weekend for you...
    I wonder if rug hooking and drinking beer is a good idea. My daughter tried spinning and drinking wine and after a while she was a happy spinner but the yarn did not turned out exactly as she had previously planned. lol...
