Sometimes I feel I should post more. But sometimes I just don't have much to say. Some of the blogs I follow post almost every day. I'd like to come up with a catchy same-day-of-the-week-post like Whatcha Doin' Wednesday, Teacup Tuesday or Freebie Friday or something on those lines that I see on other blogs, but have yet to come up with something snappy like that. I know I would have more followers if I posted more. So as of today, I'll be posting more. About what, I'm not sure.
I'm working on finishing 2 of my rugs which I've entered in the Kentucky State Fair (see my previous post). I enjoy rug hooking very much. It's a very creative outlet for me. I create my own designs and then draw them on the linen. I pretty much do that with everything I work on - stitcheries, wool felt, penny rugs, etc. - I may have a pattern to go by, but I usually adapt it for what I need or what I like and rarely use the pattern to actually draw it on the medium I'm working with. I'm continually flying by the seat of my pants!!
I have several craft shows coming up this fall and into November. I need to get busy making my items to sell. I've been in a slump lately. This hot weather we've been having FOREVER has really been taking its toll on me. I come home and should get busy working on new items to sell, but instead I sit on the couch in potato mode until it's time to go to bed. But first, I have to finish the two rugs I'm hooking as they'll be due at the Fair August 14th for the competition. So I guess I'd better leave this post and get busy hooking. I'll post a picture of the table runner I'm hooking as soon as I have it finished which should be in a few days.
Try to stay cool this weekend if it's hot where you are. The heat index was 105 degrees here today... :(
