Catching up...

I need to get on the ball about doing my posts right away. Hate letting things linger on like this. Monday night I was able to drop off the log cabin rug to Pam. I believe she really liked it. She took me in the room and showed me where she was going to put it. It will fit very nicely there. Perhaps one day, she'll want another rug.
From there I went to Louise's house in East Berlin to meet with the girls. I wasn't sure who was going to be there. It was nice to see them. I tried to get a shot of everyone, but Louise was sitting off to the side. Here is Willa, Becky, Kim, and Vicky. Tonya ,Janice, and Beth couldn't make it. Here is Louise working on her rug. It is turning out really nice. I believe the background was onion skinned.
Willa is working on a really cute design. She is a fast hooker, and knowing her, she'll be done soon.

Here is a close up of it.

Becky is working on 3 dancing bunnies. It will look great when finished.

Kim has been working on this log cabin for a while. She has another floral in a #3 cut going on, but brought this tonight.
Vicky was working on a floral. She chose some really nice colors!
On Tuesday I met with Genny and Betty at church to do some crafting. Genny was working on her rug and Betty brought along some knitting. She is making some dish cloths.

Here it's Wednesday and I thought I'd get some punching in, but George and I went looking at some cars. Paper and pen in hand, we jotted down quite a bit. When we got home, George got on the internet and did some comparisons so we could see it all on paper side by side. That does help a lot. We looked at quite a few. Not ready to test drive any yet. Soon I hope though. Just trying to see what the pricing will be, what we can afford, etc.
Huge congratulations go out to George for getting the Jeep running. I knew it would drive him crazy until he fixed it. He wouldn't give up. He found out that 2 cylinders were bad, and replaced them. It's ready to be traded in now! Way to go George!!
So I guess now we'll sit down and discuss this further and make some decisions soon. I know me, any time we spend a large amount of money, I end up with a headache, sometimes a migraine. Will need to be ready this time and take some medicine before we sign any papers lol.
It sure was a gorgeous day to be outside. A little windy, but the sun was shining and it seemed like everyone was out on the road.
Tomorrow I'm hoping to really make a dent in the punchneedle and maybe even finish it. If not, by Friday for sure. I have to, Saturday is the party.
Hope everyone is enjoying the nicer weather we are having. Till next time......

OH Jill, Too funny. Guess you learned REAL quick to drive a stick. I learned in the driveway. My car was dead, my brother had a 3speed mustang sitting in the driveway and he said here's the keys. I had to teach myself! I think he was surprised lol.

Sounds like a good time and love seeing all the rugs - You certainly are having a busy week - Take it easy woman - don't over-do - you are still recovering, and you know, at your age..... (had to say that!)
