What we did during the Olympics

Madeline and I have been watching the Olympics.  Well, I've been watching and she's been acting like she is IN the Olympics.  Lots of running, jumping, flipping, flying  -- she's easily entertained, at times.

A friend talked me into trying locker hooking.  You can use up your old fabric and make a nice rug.  No counting, no designing, no new supplies -- just some rug canvas, a locker hook needle, old fabric and a ball of cotton yarn.  I had everything but the needle.  There's plenty of videos out there on You Tube if you want to try it yourself.  Like I need another hobby -- well, we won't go there.

So I gave it a try last night while waiting for the ice dancing.  This is something pretty fun, pretty mindless to do while watching TV and pretty entertaining for Madeline.  She's such a help.

Oh what?  You're back?  No, I wasn't doing anything.  Just laying here waiting on you.

LOL, isn't that cute! They can be doing something so naughty, but look so innocent! Love your captions!
I've only seen a few minutes of ice skating on t.v., they are very graceful.

Locker Hooking? Hum... Don't say that near a school - we'll have to come 'get you out.' Interested to see how yours and Maddie's turns out.

Wish my dvr would record more than two things at a time!

Cute! The fairy is from the cricut cartridge, "A Child's Year". A must have. It has so many adorable images to use.
