Not blah at all...

You know when everything else is going kind of blah and then something comes along and just perks you up?  That's what the latest hooking is all about.  I
 know I have so many UFOs (un-finished objects) as of late, but Mille has created the sweetest pattern that is definitely something pretty!!!

Here's my first attempt at her fantastic design... 

Isn't it so sweet?

It's not finished (so it's part of the UFO's, but not for long!) 
and I opted for another pillow insert,
but just had to share my happiness with something that really just fit the bill,
satisfying the creative spirit.  Thanks Mille.

See ya round the (inspired) corner,
