Just a quick note to say hello to the world. I have the winter/holiday blahs. I can't really say winter now can I?!?! It's about 50 degrees and Ohio....on December 15th.

I got to chat with Alice and she reminded me of a local hook-in, so I'm going. I'm actually looking forward to it! I've heard about it before and just dragged my feet and never made it. I'm determined to use some of my craft supplies (which include a wonderful frame, Bliss cutter, and some wool) and do something useful with them. Four years ago I bought some monks cloth (I think that's what it is) intending to make a rug for my sister's wedding. I will give you one guess where the monks cloth is. Yep, in the bag from the store.

My son had hand surgery on Monday and is still in some pain and bored out of his mind, but is hanging in there. He broke a finger badly during basketball practice a few weeks ago. We didn't realize it was broken and didn't get to the doc as soon as we should have. That's the downfall of working in a hospital. Kind of like that story of the shoemaker's children. So one pin and one screw later, he is all wrapped up and on Vicodin. Unfortunately he is missing an entire week of school (bad planning on my part) and next week starts winter break, so I guess in his mind he is lucky....though he is not happy about having to make up a week's worth of work over break.

I better go check on the patient. Have a good weekend all and hopefully I will have a picture of something hooked next time I stop in. : )

Hi Michelle
Got the winter time blues here too.
Cold and gloomy here lately. Been rain too.
Hope everything goes well for your son.
I'm glad I'm not the only one that buys things and leave them in the bag ~ someday I'll get to them.
Happy Crafting!
Prim Blessings

sounds like you need a dose of rug hooking with friends.
I hope you find your holiday spirt soon.

The blahs seems to be going around this year. It will all come to pass. I'm not ready for Christmas and I'm trying not to let it drag me down. There's too much hype and that's what drags me down.

I hope that your son's hand heals real fast. JB

Sounds like you had great plans four years ago. I've just started rug hooking. I'm on my second project. I belong to the yahoo group Rughookers.

Sorry to learn about your son's accident. I had a nephew who cut off his pinky the first day he had a job in a kitchen. Fortunately, the reattachment was succssful.
