It seems to me that time is flying. Spring is definately here. My yard is beginning to wake up - jounquils, daffy's and some lovely "pink" things are blooming. The iris are getting new leaves and the grass needs mowing!

I went to Chambersburg on Monday. It was great to see Kathy out again and working on a new piece. I took lots of pictures but since Pat posted first I have narrowed mine down to just a few.

Pat, Marian, Kathy talking to Ann and Joan - all hard at work

This is Marian's piece. I love the little chick on the basket. I cannot believe how much her hooking as changed since I first met her. Keep up the good work, Marian.

This is Ann's rug. She had asked me to help her match some wool for it and I lucked out and was able to help her out. I love the design and she has allowed me to use parts of it in a rug that I will be hooking in the future.

I have finished my parrot rug - here it is - I found it difficult to get a good color picture of the blue and the "spotting" of the background doesn't really show in the picture. I am please with the result. Hope you like them - they are a bit more colorful than I usually do.

As always, my faithful friend is here at the computer with me. (I cannot get the type face to hold!)

Hey Doris, It was good to see you and everyone else on Monday. I just love how your bird rug turned out. So glad I got to see it in person. Just stunning as usual! Haven't picked up a hook since Monday but am hoping for some time this weekend. I'm on a deadline with that one I started. Hopefully the house will be quiet enough for me to sit down for a bit and won't have to do any running around.
Love the quote of the day too. So true!! Hope to see you soon.
