Spent the weekend at the cabin. Beautiful weather. Gordon and a couple of friends went diving for mussels. Had a great mussel boil with friends and even managed to preserve 5 bottles of mussels in vinegar. Yum!!!!!
The garden is showing a sign of spring and I was so excited when I saw these little gems shining through.
spent some time hooking on my rug. I like how the flowers are looking, but I have to take out some leaves around my pansies (you can't see them on this picture) the green is not right.
And to top off the weekend, I made 17 Pagekeeps. I gave one each to my four sisters for Easter and rest will hang around waiting for homes. I previously made them for my son and daughter and my son's girlfriend and they were a big hit. They are made from recycled wool material. (Usually wool that I have that is too thick for hooking) stitched together with a blanket stitch and have a beachrock in each end for weight. They work great to hold your book open for handsfree reading (ie. reading and eating) or holding your recipe book open. Makes a great little low-cost practical gift.
Keep on hookin' and I hope everyone had a great Easter.
