And Pat was there too. She had her Baltimore quilt pattern with her, but I didn't get to see how much further she got on it. Joan also brought me a gift for my birthday! I had to hold on to this for dear life. All eyes were on it lol!! Joan, it's just beautiful, and I can't wait to use it in that "perfect" piece, or pieces. She dyes such lovely pieces~~
Along with the wool, there were a few stitchery patterns, and a piece of backing to stitch on. Hard to see behind the patterns. And Joan has a true love for books. She gifted me with this book also. I can't wait to sit and read it this weekend. Thank you Joan for everything! I love it all! Joanne is quite the baker. I got a quick shot of what she brought for us to endulge in. Oh my, sooo moist, and soooo delicious.
Joanne was working on her rug that she finished hooking. The girl is a fast hooker and whipper! She got it whipped in the time she was here. Just gorgeous!
Doris was looking at a piece of paisley that Linda had. And she ended up buying a piece of it. So soft in color.
Here is what Doris was working on. You are almost done!
Here is Kathy on the left looking at the applique quilt piece her sister Mabel is working on. She showed us a picture of it. It's going to be very big! Two more of their sisters came, Doris and Bert. Bert is the twin of Mabel. Hard to keep it straight lol. And Genny couldn't make it because she was watching her grandchildren. She has them every other week, so hopefully she'll come next week! Kathy is really enjoying the hooking, and I'm guessing she'll have her most recent piece done soon. Sorry I didn't get an update on it.
I finally got a picture of Sherry when she wasn't leaving! I usually get her on the way out. Towards the end of the night, we had a nice time just chatting. (and laughing of course. That is always a given!) If you can get a close look at Sherry's sweatshirt, you'll see the cat face on it. There were 2 0r 3 on the front and 2 on the back. The woman who painted them did an awesome job.
Well, that was it for the pictures. Jill came towards evening, and she needed some help with finding some wool for a project she was going to do today. So we were busy. They were coming at 9:00 or so this morning. She had invited some of her hooking friends over and they were going to learn a little bit of applique. I taught her the blanket stitch last night too. I sure hope it went well. I was invited, but today was so jam packed with running, that I didn't have the time. I hope she took pictures, and posts it on her blog (hint, hint, wink, wink Jill!!) lol. And hmmmm, never even got a shot of Linda last night.
Well, I'm catching up on here for a couple reasons. I'm being a little selfish. I want the weekend to myself, and I don't want to feel guilty for not updating the blog. I want to sit and hook and then work on something that will be for my next post. If anyone was paying attention, I said on my 150th post, I was going to have my first give away. You'll just have to stay tuned to see what I come up with. Could be in a day or two, or up to a week. Depends on when I get time to come back on here to post it.
Wishing everyone a Blessed, Creative weekend!!
