Here's a pic of the finished rug. It measures 31" by 27". And says, "not all who wander are lost."
Over at MSN on a rug hooking board, "Wool Snippets" we had a Secret Santa exchange. I received my package this week. Lots of nice stuff from Susi Seyller in Virginia. Thanks again, Susi. She even put in some scrapbooking stuff for Jimmie Dean!!! How thoughtful is that? And look at the beautiful hooked angel ornament she made. Also a 2008 Hallmark ornie, 4 beautiful pieces of wool, penguin socks, note cards from Primitives by Kathy, chocolate, and some snowman kleenex. It was quite a gift to get in the mail from someone I don't even know. It was great fun putting the box together from me to my secret person too. Haven't heard yet if she has received it or not.
Our weather has been crazy all week, warm, cold, high pressure, low pressure. It's made my fibromyalgia flare and I've pretty much been in bed or on the couch all week. Last night at Simply Fibers was our hooking group and they ordered pizza and had a Christmas party. I had to miss it. Boo Hoo. And our granddaughters Christmas program at school was Monday night. Missed that too. I was really looking forward to that. There's nothing better than the sound of little kids singing Christmas carols. They're so excited and innocent. The commercialism hasn't really caught up to them in grade school. Wish we could go back to the way things used to be regarding Christmas, but I guess people have been using that phrase about a lot of things for many years. But I still wish we could simplify it and just celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.
Like I always say, all we need to do is watch "A Charlie Brown Christmas" to get the real meaning.
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas,
