Dogwood ATHA Rug Show Part 2

Below are the remaining rugs that I got pics of.

My favorite rug in the show. The colors just glow!

 Don't know who hooked this one, but the pattern is by Trisha Travis.


Hooked by Sandy Gillam.


Rob had his third brain surgery a couple of weeks ago for recurrence of his Glioblastoma. 
He is doing well and starts a new treatment regimen on Wednesday. Continued prayers appreciated.
He and Christi celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary yesterday.

  • Much needed hugs from sweet friends.
  • An unexpected text from an old friend
  • Playing in the dirt.

Dogwood ATHA Rug Show Part 1

I know, I have been gone a long while. February has been a challenging month. But here I am.

Last Saturday was our Winter Dogwood ATHA Guild Hook In. There were lots of wonderful rugs, old and new, on display. I captured the labels of those who had them. The rest I will try to credit if I know.  













Unlabeled , but I love the simplicity of this guy.



More on my next post.

A boy and his dog...or maybe I should say pony...LOL!!

  • Spring like weather.
  • Compassionate pharmaceutical companies.
  • The respite of days spent with friends, hooking and stitching.

Happy February

Happy birthday dear hubby!!
What better way to start February than with the birthday of this special guy?? Blake rarely smiles in a photo, so I consider this one a treasure!

The first of the month also means that it is goal setting day.  Judy over at 
Patchwork Times chose #9 on our UFO list for this month. Honestly, it has been so long since I looked at this Basket quilt start that it is going to be a mystery blast from the past!! I remember that the baskets were pink & brown repro prints set on point...and that all of the blocks weren't finished. Yikes!! No time to pull it out today, but tomorrow for sure.

My other February goals...
  • Temecula Postcard mini

  • Finish final Lucy Boston block and work on setting 
  • Turn these Postage Stamp Star blocks from RSC 2015 into a top. I am choosing this one as my One Monthly Goal and linking up at Elm Street Quilts.
  • Finish two blocks a week on this rug
  • Keep up with my ongoing projects 
That should keep me busy enough...LOL!

  • A very special man to share my life with
  • A clean house
  • Fresh sheets to snuggle beneath.
Take Care,
