My hook has been moving...

hi, I am happy you stopped by to check in with my little spot in the world.  I had already written this post once and then my finger hit the delete button..and poof the entire post disappeared..so now I am trying to remember what I was posting about...and well I am drawing a blank.  I finished 3 runners since I last posted anything on my blog...yes and they are blocked.  I think I am gonna list them in my Etsy shop.... www.etsy.com/shop/byhooks4u in case you want to look..
It is that time of year again where I stress myself out.  For my new followers..I do one craft show a year.  It is the last full weekend in September..it is the biggest one in the area and usually the first for the holiday season.  Anyway, I get stressed and tell myself that every year will be the last...however..I have come to realize that in some sick way I must like it or I wouldn't do it.  I do like seeing and talking to people..everyone has a story to tell especially when they see my doilies.  You know..my grandma..my aunt...or my mom...stories.  I like talking and visiting with like minded folks.  I like the crafters and the crafts they display.  Nothing that isn't made with your hands is not supposed to be allowed in the show...everything is to be handcrafted..although I think sometimes a few sneak stuff in...but for the most part it is all handcrafted.. 

Ok now that I think I have rambled on long enough let me post a few pics of the runners I did finish up this week...
DMC yellow #745


Cebelia #437...camel

DMC Cebelia ...white...

I love them and I wish so much I could create these beauties.
I do like working with thread but only the small doilies, I just couldn't do anything like this.

Absolutely beautiful as always!!

I just love that yellow one!
Last year, I thought about doing a craft show, then decided to wait until this year... and now...we'll see. I also thought I'd have a bunch more stuff available to sell, but life continues to move along, and I didn't have as much time to make things for fun as I thought I would. Instead there were things I NEEDED to make or deadlines to prioritize. Oh well! Such is life.
