    Thanks for commenting on my photos. I do lots of hand stitching and hooking and just love it. Hooking is really easy and I donot use yarn though you can...I use mainly recycled wool I cut from thrift store wool clothing. I even dye my own wool now. The rooster was the first design I ever drew myself..since then I mainly hook my own designs..but will hook a bought one if I really like it..I have a wool cutter so makes the cutting much easier. I did set up a rug hooking team but only 5 people there and it is mainly me posting..Anyway thanks again for the kind comments. emoticon

    Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh and I love this arbor picture! I was trying to show off my ferns ha, they were all I have. Well I planted a few bushes. But I joined the garden club last year, so hoping this year I get a few more things established. Anyways, thanks for taking the time!
