Death of a friend

Upon arriving home from work last night, I learned that my friend Lynda, passed away in her sleep a few nights ago. I almost fell to my knees from shock...she was a little younger than me. I had spoken to her about three weeks ago. We used to work together, and that was how we met. We instantly became friends, and I've missed her since she took a position at another facility. Lynda was a little spitfire, and she dressed like and adored Stevie Nicks. Funny, she's been on my mind a lot the last two weeks. I have been thinking about her whenever I was at work. When I woke up this morning, I was hoping that this was just a bad dream. Sadly, it isn't. This just reminds me to don't sweat the small stuff, and enjoy today as if it will be your last day. Too bad we have to be reminded of this through the loss of a friend. Rest in peace my friend...I will miss you...

Gravestone angel

I finished my little gravestone angel rug. I kept pulling out sections that I had hooked, because the color didn't look right to me. I like the way it came out! It measures 12" W X 9" H. I just love gravestone art from the 1700's and 1800's! If you want to see beautiful gravestone art, check-out this link...https://www.facebook.com/thegravestonegirls....their pictures are amazing!!! I'm selling my little rug on Etsy, but I hate to part with it...I have several areas where I could display it in my home. Today I need to draw another rug design to hook. I love it when I'm in a hooking mood!
