Busy day after a great night

I've been cleaning all morning. The house has been neglected due to all the hooking time I did over the weekend, and the birthday celebrations. So it was time to get back to it. I'm just about done doing what I had set out to do today, washing floors, the kitchen, laundry room, entry way. Will shoot for the computer room in a bit and then save the family room for tomorrow and the bedrooms upstairs. House sure does smell clean though lol. I have an apple tart burning in one room and a Yankee frosted pumpkin burning in the other. Candles always put me in a good mood.
Last night I was able to meet with my friend Beth for dinner in East Berlin before I had to take my rug over to the woman who bought it. We had a really nice time. Had pizza. I think it's both our favorites. Anytime! I'm really mad at myself for not getting a picture of me and her together. Beth, next time for sure. She gave me the sweetest gifts too.

I love the bowl and can't wait to hook, or make the items for inside. The punchneedle is adorable with the squirrel and the Be Thankful will get hung up today. All of this was wrapped in a really soft piece of taupey camel wool that will be overdyed for sure! Thank you Beth for such an enjoyable time.

From there, Beth came with me so I wouldn't get lost dropping off the rug. The woman, Pam, was so thrilled with the log cabin rug. She asked me if I wanted to see where she was going to hang it. Of course! It was in a room with a whole collection of log cabin items. She held it up to the wall in the spot she had chosen for it and I asked her if I could get a picture. She was very happy to do so. It looked wonderful in this room. The red I used looked great with the beadboard and trim work she had. From there, Beth and I went to Becky's house for hooking. Becky makes redware pottery, and I've been in her little shop, but never in her home. Very, very nice. Very warm and inviting. I got a couple shots of the gals hooking. I didn't hook a loop. Was just relaxing and enjoying the company. Here's Becky.
Everyone looks so serious lol.

Well, I guess I better get back to my cleaning. It doesn't get done itself!

What a beautiful cabin rug. Hooking wth friends is always great. Please tell us more about your friend's shop. I love redware :)

Kim, guess I should elaborate on Becky's shop. It's a cute little building on her property that she makes her redware in. As far as I know, she only sells at shows like Colonial Day in East Berlin, and I know she does the York Folk Art Show in York, Pa. She has beautiful pieces and I have a few. I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a website, but if I find out differently, I'll be sure to let you know!
