Years ago, I hooked with a lady named Genevieve. Along with being a talented hooker, Genevieve made appliqued creations to cover Puritan frames.
The patterns were her own...each one different.
Genevieve also made snippet bags. They conveniently hang over the arm of your favorite hooking chair, and have a large magnet to hold your scissors at the ready.
A friend sent me the Quilted Crow button and a collection snowballed from there.
On our travels, I look for buttons to join this ever growing obsession.
As I hook, I am reminded of all the places our family has visited...and all the memories we've made.
When my girl was in elementary school she made me this beaded salamander that makes it easy to locate my ever wandering scissors.
...one of my most treasured possessions...
I hope to get a little hooking in over the weekend...surrounded by friends and memories...and a creation by my favorite daughter.
Have a great weekend...stay safe...there's a Nor'easter on the way!
Enjoy the day,
