Current and Future

Still no clue what dad and I will do for the summer.  Just doesn't seem to be any quick answers.  I do appreciate the suggestions my readers gave and I thank you all for listening to my rant.  Trust me when I did not hear all of it!  But I don't need to be broadcasting or complaining about my problems anyway.  They are small compared to others. 

Instead, I thought I would share what is currently on my hooking frame.

Notice that the kitty doesn't have any eyes yet.  I am thinking I will use tiny buttons or maybe even a couple of small beads.  Not sure yet.  

And for my future project......


I'm sooo excited about this one!  I purchased this spring time mat from Cathy G at Orange Sink......   If you've been following Cathy's blog you will know she is teaching a hooking class and this is the pattern her students are working on.  I wrote and told her I would love to purchase this pattern if she had a chance to draw one for me.   She did....and I did!!!!

And....she also sent wonderful piece of wool that is a yummy green.  I'm sure she dyed it herself!   If you haven't checked out Cathy's blog, you really should.  I love the artistic eye she has for flowers and color.   I'm really hoping as time goes by that she will draw more patterns and offer them for sale!!  

Thanks again Cathy....I LOVE it!

Hook on everyone!


  1. Love Cathy's pattern - that would be a fun one to hook - Your kitty is adorable too! Is that your own pattern! Too cute

  2. Thanks Joanne! The kitty is a Sharon Perry pattern. She sells on ebay under nfld55. I've bought kits and patterns from her for several years now. Last year I actually sold a similar kitty rug that I purchased from her. If I'm not mistaken, she is Deanne Fitzpatrick's sister. So I've been told.

    I really love Cathy's use of color and her designs! I sure hope she does more!!

    I think button eyes would be very cute on the kitty.
    After reading your last post, my heart just aches for you. I'm sure it is hard enough dealing with everyday issues with Dad and then to add the uncertainty and turmoil. It's more than you should have to deal with. I bet if my family would have a family meeting, well, let's just say it would not be pretty. We put the fun back in disfunctional :)
    Big hugs coming your way !

  4. Hi Karen,
    I'm so glad you received the pattern and better yet that you like it! Thank-you so much for all these kind words! You know how I love to hear those compliments and encouragement! I am finding that I do love designing patterns and my hope is that I can continue to be in a position to create more and sell them! Just have to push this old body to the limit to reach those goals! Thank-you again for your purchase and encouragement! The biggest thrill will be seeing how you hook the pattern! I'm so excited!
    Hugs and Blessings to you!
    Cathy G

  5. Nice work, you are far more talented than I.

  6. Oh, I love your kitty rug! Buttons will look great! I have used Sharon Perry patterns before too. I can't wait to see you hook Cathy's pattern. I love her work and her blog as well.

  7. Karen that kitty rug is darling!!! I think I might actually finish a rug if I had that pattern :)


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
