Last week I spoke about Christmas traditions and perhaps starting new ones. Last year I think I started a new tradition. Another Mary Janet LIVE on Facebook last Christmas, she was making Chocolate Covered Balls. I had never made chocolate balls before. I asked my sister Dianne and her daughter Jill if they wanted to make them with me and they said yes. We had so much fun, my sister Dianne asked if we wanted to do it again this year. My first response was NO, it was a lot of work but we did have fun and I have FOMO (fear of missing out) so I changed my mind and said yes. Our mother (Joan) wanted to help as well and Jill had the idea to go to her house on the island (PEI) where she lives. Off we went yesterday to PEI making Christmas Chocolate Balls. Lots of laughs and even a video of some dancing but I can't share that here. We've already made plans for next years chocolate ball event to be held at my daughter's (Jenna's) in Halifax, get ready!
I have been busy dyeing wool all week and never hooked much at all. I am taking a fine shading Pansy course tomorrow and Tuesday so I'll have pictures of that for next weeks blog. The Morgan frames I restocked the studio with are already sold out so more of those I will order. The studio is stocked with all of the Amy Oxford punches once again except I missed ordering #14's so I'll get more of those.
In the mail this week; Teralisa Ripley finished off her table rug, it is so beautiful and such a great idea. She is going to cover with plastic and have it for the holidays. The red background is Fabulous Red (light) dyed by Della's Rug Hooking Studio.
Shelley Myers has finished this lovely piece she made for her cottage to match her bedspread. Della's Rug Hooking studio dyed the blues and light peach colours.
Jean Fawthrop shared this lovely Sheep pattern she started when we were at the PEI retreat in October. It is coming along.
Have an awesome week everyone!
