rug hooking

Merry Christmas everyone... I first want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Now one of my New Year resolutions is to learn how to do Rug Hooking... can someone tell me is this hard? I really enjoy working on Penny Rugs, I love to recyle wool so I thought that the rugs would be a perfect fit. If anyone has any tips or helpful websites, please send them my way.

The sun is out

Well after a couple days of rain and wind, it looks like the sun might just come out today. Who would think that we are getting rain instead of Snow in December here in Maine. I have been busy working and trying to get ready for Christmas... I am starting to get overwhelmed with the amount of wrapping I have to do. Well I guess it will all get done at some point.
I hope everyone has a great day

my three boys... they are not very happy with mommy dressing them up for christmas

The weather in Maine is Beautiful today

All I can say is Beautiful... that is the best way to describe the weather in Maine.... The sun is shining and it is in the 70's. We have been very blessed to have had an early spring and here in Standish we have not had snow on the ground since February. My fingers are crossed that the warm weather last and we get to enjoy summer this year. I hope you all have a wonderful day

A little note about us

Hello everyone,

I am new to blogging but have been told this is a great tool for small business. My husband and I and our 2 children have a small woodworking and primitives business. Our business started out as a hobby but has now turned into Pauls full time job. He is finally doing what makes him happy and it is wonderful. Our business has a little bit if everything, we build Kitchens, furniture and Primitives. We are hoping to open a small shop shortly and are excited for the new opportunities that are to follow. I hope you will enjoy seeing the pictures and post to follow.

Hugs to all
