Weekend wrap up

Another weekend gone in a blur.  Nothing terribly exciting to report.  I did a little of this and that.  Today was a grey rainy day and I was tempted to turn the furnace on for a few minutes but I just couldn't bring myself to do it yet.  But the electric fireplace was blazing to take the dampness out of the air. 

Again the rug hook remained still but the knitting needles were flying.  A lot of my friends have wanted those cotton dish cloths so now my stock is replenished.   There is such a small section left to hook on this project.

That's all - just one little corner but it will have to wait for another day.  I've been looking at patterns online and I think there are a few I "need" to hook.  I have a few winter holiday mats ready to post in my etsy store but I'm waiting for a bit.  I don't want to rush it too much.  

I told you it was rainy today and Millie hates the rain.  She is such a prissy little girl that getting her "hair" wet makes her mad.  Today I literally had to throw her outside.  This was the reaction when she came back in.....

Yup, she was wet, disheveled and NOT impressed at all.   What a sad looking pooch!


  1. Poor little Millie! Ellie hates the rain, too. I literally have to drag her out and she is not a happy camper.
    Monday ~ UGH! I am so not a morning person and 5:30 comes much too early in the day.
    Hugs :)

  2. Oh Millie looks so sad.....Me will be too come Thursday, back to work, yuk....Holidays will be over, Francine.

  3. So did you feel guilty about getting her wet in the rain? She looks pretty miffed at you.
    That is a great snowman.
    I hope you have a wonderful day for a Monday I mean.

  4. She probably shook herself all over you didn't she.


    cute snowman

  5. lol! Millie looks cute with the 80's punk going on! :-) Your hooked mat is getting along great! Electric fireplace already? I'm jealous...we have 2 days of necessary AC coming... THEN we get to the electric fireplace weather... ahhhh.... looking forward to it!

  6. I don't like having to be out in the rain either. I hope Millie has gotten over being mad at you. :)

    Have a great day!

  7. If looks could kill... LOL!I love your little snowman, he is so cute!

  8. I'm late making my rounds. Millie is giving you the stink eye. I don't like to deal with going out in the rain either even with a rain coat.
    Hope your Monday was nice. It was cold here this morning and I nearly froze while working at the farm. I hate the thought of digging out my long johns soon.

  9. dang.

    didn't run fast enough.

    Monday caught me, full force.
