I won't post my usual shot of the full rug on the floor because, well, there has not been much progress. Still have the arm issue so I have REALLY cut back. 20 minutes or so of hooking each day is about all I let myself do.
I have moved my hooking operation out to the screened porch. Here's Crazy Horse lounging on the porch, wondering what the heck happened to me!
The porch is one of my favorite places to be. A wonderful craftsman from Bethany, MO built all this willow furniture for us. I collected Saltillo blankets to upholster the cushions.
The rug is pretty much covering up the love seat (above). Here are the two chairs...
and the chaise lounge...
and the tall table...
Mike made the "chandelier" over the table from an Osage Orange (Hedge) branch and 5 glass bottles he found somewhere on one of his travels. Each bottle has a metal hanger with a place to put a tealight in the bottom. After we broke one of the bottles we had to drink a whole bottle of Milagro and have the bottom cut off to replace the broken bottle (it's the blue one)!
The garden is super lush right now - with foliage! We have had lots of moisture and everything is growing like a weed, including the weeds. The hybrid daylilies are still a few weeks away - I can't wait!!!
Here's one of my cute bunny planters all decked out with mini petunias.
Here's the plant I nursed through the winter indoors because I love it...it survived and now that it is back outside it is flourishing again. Today it is celebrating Memorial Day and remembering all those who Serve Our Country... hope you are too.
Crazy Horse will not make another appearance on the blog until it is FINISHED! I really hope that will be soon. I can't wait to see it in its place and walk on it everyday!
Happy Hooking. Happy Gardening.
