My grandson taking his nap yesterday. Ah ... to be so carefree!

I know this is a weird topic for a rug hooking blog, but I have to vent a bit. This week, I went for my routine (yearly) mammogram. Went and had the films done and returned home a few hours later to get a message from the doctor's office that they needed to get more films made. Of course, this makes your heart beat faster. However, this happens to me almost all the time. So, back I went two days later. Thankfully, all was well, but for those two days, I did nothing but worry. Why is it if you routinely have to have more films done, that they can't do it in one visit? I asked the technician this and she told me to have my doctor write the script that way the next time. She also said, "Don't say you heard this from me!" Is this because the imagining center can bill for two separate visits? Not sure, but it is very upsetting that women's fears are not taken into account when these tests are taken. Sorry for venting. It's been one of those weeks!!!

Loopy Ladies Memory Rugs and then some

I was unable to attend the last meeting of the Loopy Ladies rug hookers, but I snapped these pictures the meeting before. Many of the hookers are working on the same pattern called "Some of Our Favorite Things." Here are some of the different interpretations in various stages of completion.

When you see them altogether, you can see how each hooker has chosen to attack the color scheme. They look lovely whether done in a lighter background or a darker.

A couple of hookers were working on other projects. This is Pat Parisi's work in progress. It will soon grace a hallway in Pat's house.

Another hooker, Bonnie, is doing this rug for a friend.
