My Grandmother is a Hooker

A rug hooker, that is : )

I'll have to showcase more of her work here in the future.  She's very talented!

She called me up out of the blue one day:

Me: Hello?
Nana: How are ya darlin'?  (in her Kentucky/Tennessee/Texas accent)
Me: I'm good, Nana, how are you?
Nana: I'm doin' just fine.  Have I ever made you a pumpkin towel?
Me: No, I don't think so.
Nana:  I didn't think I had.  We'll, I'm bringin' one to lunch on Sunday for you.
Me: Well, thanks! 

And that was about all she had to say to me that afternoon. : )



Isn't it darling?  Hooked up real pretty by my Nana.
She was sure to advise me that it was just for decoration and not wiping up spills.  And that I shouldn't throw it in the washing machine.  Isn't she cute?

I'm really looking forward to some time this weekend to finish up a quilt top for a very special friend of mine.  Might even have it shipped in time to arrive on the other side of the world in time for Christmas!

It might be a little ambitious to have quilt gifts planned for Christmas presents that I haven't even started yet.  Especially since I take boards 5 days before Christmas!  And especially since I'm behind on 2 wedding quilts and 1 baby quilt (well, the baby's not here yet, so technically I'm not behind yet!)  Yikes.  We'll see how all that works out.  Probably in the form of IOUs!

HaHa, she was so secretive about it! I got one too and she made sure to let me know the rules of using it :) It is so cute though!!
