Have hook will travel.

Because I was in Oregon visiting my son, daughter-in-law, and granddaughter, Lucy, I haven’t any new hooking to show you.   I did take a hook with me to repair a few loose wool strips on the Lucy’s Goose rug that I hooked for her a few years ago.  One of the dogs wanted to scratch up a comfortable bed on the rug, and who could blame her?  Hooked rugs are ever so soft and cushiony.

Other than that, I did a lot of ooo-ing and ahh-ing over the beautiful mountains, rivers, vineyards and blooming scenery.  I attended Lucy’s Grandparents Day at her school and went back for the school’s May Day celebration. 

I attended a Korean first birthday party for an adorable little girl named River.  Authentic decorations, food and drumming were enjoyed by all.  It was held at a very big and beautiful vineyard.  Oregon is known for its incredible wine and I admit that I sampled some of it during the party.

Last week I said I would be starting my Memorial Day rug, but something else came up to hook.  I usually like to focus on one at a time, but maybe I’ll do two rugs simultaneously.  I can multi-task, so I could try it with hooking projects.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and Oregon is filled with it!
