Primitive rug hooking is one of the crafts that I enjoy. This is one of my winter projects I have finally completed. This is a Sharon Perry Design that I won on e-bay. It hooked up quite nicely, love the colors, but the binding, oh the binding, it's tedious and time consuming to hem on. Definitely not my favorite part of hooking, but tonight it is completed. Hemmed, pressed and placed on my kitchen floor. Later in the day Winslow and I headed out to one of my favorite garden nurseries "O'Donals." There I purchased tickets for the Portland Flower Show held at the Portland Company Complex off Commercial Street in Portland. The exhibition will feature 14 landscapes interpreting the theme "From Mountains To Sea". There will be displays of trees, shrubs, flowers, " forced" into early bloom as well as stone displayed in walkways and walls. Also of interest, vendors, food court, gardening seminars, educational presentations and on the last day a plant auction. The show begins opening night March 11th and runs through Sunday the 14th. My mom and I are looking forward to spending the day together enjoying the sights, sounds, and fragrance that only spring can offer "forced" or not.
