Frustration has been the word of the past few weeks. During the time that I was not posting Mr. Blog decided to update how you blog. Oh my goodness, all of these changes for an old lady make for smoke rolling out of the ears. Richard finally figured out how to get the picture on and so I am now going to try to update.
I took a trip to Grant Street Woolworks several weeks ago. I did not take pictures of rugs. Kathy (woolfind) always does a good job of that. Instead I chose to "Take the Road Less Traveled" to Chambersburg. I wandered up Maryland Route 11 instead of taking interstate 81. It is a lovely senic drive and probably only takes 10-15 minutes longer and no trailer-tractors to contend with.
A beautiful day with soft puffy clouds floating the the sky. When I was a kid I loved to look at the faces, the animals, and the castles in the clouds. These looked like big marshmellows and some looked like cotton candy.
There are lots more interesting barns and houses on this route but no place to pull off of the road to take pictures. I do enjoy the ride.
In addition to that, I have been elbow deep in tomatoes. More about that later. Also I have started a new hooking project. When I run into a problem while hooking my rule of thumb is to take the piece off of the stand and let it rest for a week. Usually at the end of that time the piece tells me what it needs. Of course, I cannot a week without hooking! Sooooooo, instead of working on one of the many "already started" pieces, of course, I started on new design. More on this in the next post.
In the meantime, Joan, Richard and I visited our favorite Mexican Resturant last Saturday and after Richard is finished mowing today we will venture out for another luncheon in one of our favorite places.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. The weather today is perfect!
