~*Bait Shop Activity... so far*~

Hello Dear Friends!

As I've mentioned earlier, I have a part time job with the bait shop at the beautiful Lake Wabaunsee.  This lake is about 10 minutes from our house.  I have not spent much time there yet, but I am just in awe at the natural beauty.  I'm looking forward to a great summer at the lake!

I work at the bait shop Monday and Tuesday mornings.  Later I may fill in a few extra hours, but I do still have my other part time job with the consignment shop in Council Grove.

So far, the lake has not been too busy.  It is still early in the season... and it has been very cold.  We had snow the other morning!  ICK!!!  No more until next Winter PLEASE!

To fill my time... I have been hooking!

Here are my finishes from this week...

Thank you to all who gave me suggestions for the bunny rug!  It is now finished... and I think it has been claimed by a new home.  *SMILES*  Remember, the pattern for this rug was generously given by Lori Brechlin of NotForgotten Farm.  It is a freebie pattern she gifted a few years ago.  I had to change it a little because of my hooking trials... but hopefully she will approve of my finish.  Thank you, Lori!

 Here are a few more photos... with and without the camera flash.

My washboard is finished now too!  It was a fun & quick project.  I kept the design and hooking simple.  Around the edge I hooked a little red and blue for color.  The letters are a light gold.  The background a brown mix.  I'm thinking I will keep this one to display in our laundry room with my collection of other old washboards.  We moved here in October... and I have yet to do any painting or decorating.  Hmmmm... maybe I'll start in the laundry room?

 More photos with and without the flash.

When I arrived at the lake this morning, it was a chilly 27 degrees.  The fog rising from the lake was soothing and gentle.  I was mesmerized by it...

 In the lower picture, you can see a couple of friendly geese...
I hope to keep sharing more projects, finishes, and beautiful lake views with you!
Wishing you all warm smiles!
