I hook rugs, I knit and I have a life - not always in that order. Hooking rugs in the traditional way is a passion. Knitting is a way of keeping those idle hands busy. In my life, I am a mother, partner, sister,aunt, friend and a happy grammy. I work with volunteers and seniors when I'm not doing those other things. I enjoy being creative - and often reinvent the wheel. Above all, I value things that are not only beautiful but useful.

I met this fellow while I was out snapping rose photos. He just sat there, bold as brass, on my rose leaf.
This is a scarlet and red leafhopper - not one of the garden's good guys. Doesn't he (or she- no idea) seem to be laughing at me as I get so-o close with the macro lens? A very determined bug, the leafhopper stood fast while the breeze shook the leaf and I edged closer. I haven't been back to see what damage may have been done to that leaf.
