Snow Day

We're having our first real snow of the season.  Its a good day for sitting on the sofa with an Ann Cleeves mystery -- which is just what I've been doing.  That, and playing Word Welder on my iPad.  Finally won after two weeks of trying.  Today was the day for the Peconic Ruggers New Year's party, but the snow forced us to postpone it until tomorrow.  I just finished hooking a brick path hit-or-miss rug yesterday (that's Cairo sitting on it), so I am digging through my UFOs for something to work on tomorrow.  I should really be vacuuming up all the snippets.  I make quite a mess when I hook, which is why I only hook up here in my garret.  It is so nice to leave the mess and shut the door on it.

I have been relying on my smart phone for blogging and taking pictures, which is why my photos have not been great.  Seems like I always leave my camera here in the attic and I am too lazy retrieve it when its time for a walk or some other photo op.  The Blogger app is quite handy, though, in a pinch.  Easy to use, which is making me lazy.

Anyway, I decided to take some picture out the windows of my studio, hoping the bay would be visible.  It's not.  And the pictures are not so hot.  But here you go anyway.

It's been a snowy day here in NH. I love it when it snows and I don't have to go out! Love your hit or miss...very nice. And it's always nice to get pet approval. My cat loves a hooked mat.

Beautiful rug! I've never seen a hit or miss done in a brick pattern. Its snowing here in Ohio too. I had to drive to do a Thirty-one Gifts party, but now I'm home cozied up in bed with the fur babies and a magazine. :-) I'm hooking with a friend tomorrow and can't wait.

your mat is great and a wonderful way to use up the left overs. thank you for your visit and following. We have a transfer station also but to the new englanders it's always going to be the dump I guess.
