Hook-In update

Man, oh man is it ever cold. We only got a few flurries today, and I know we are lucky compared to other states. I hope everyone is all snuggled up in a warm home today. My heart goes out to all that are homelss, or have to work in this cold weather out doors. I can't even imagine.

Just getting to loading the pictures onto the computer today from last week at Grantstreet. I wasn't sure how many would turn out because of the cold weather, but they were in and out during the day. Beth and Jill came and they are such a hoot. I've probably said that before in another post, but man, can those two get to giggling. You can't help but laugh too. Here is Beth and then I got a shot of the bird she is hooking. Great job Beth!

And here is Jill. She is working on a piece from a group she belongs too. Each person will have a part to hook. She was hooking the yellow ware bowl. I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of it. It was looking really nice!
I was pleasantly surprised when Teresa walked in. I was writing back and forth in emails to her about coming. And she didn't think she could make it this week. But she did! Didn't get a shot of her, but she did bring her rug that she has been working on for some time. I won't tell them how long lol. Hey, we've all got rugs that have taken us time, right?? Look how wonderful it is! She wants to finish it and said she will come back to one of the hook ins to sit and work on it! She has a lovely Etsy shop too. Check it out! She makes some wonderful Prim items. Linda did get to sit and hook. I can't wait to take a picture of her rug when it is ALL done!

And Genny showed up later in the evening. She's working on a rug for her daughter.

Nancy came back this week to work on her Polly Minnick rug. She heard from a friend that she saw her on a blog. Well, you made it again Nancy! Can't wait to see the rug finished. It's so close to being done! And the ticking for the finishing is going to look so nice.

Sherry came in the evening and she was working on whipping a piece. I showed her how to whip with the wool strips. She said she liked it.

Well, Joanne was supposed to come this week again, but she woke up to snow! Even though it cleared up later on for her, I'm glad she didn't venture out in it. Better to be safe! We'll see you again soon I hope! But to show you how much we missed you, we wanted you to feel like you were right here with us. WE know how much you like to do this, soooooo........

Here I am...not being able to "think outside the box" !
And I'm not allowed to say who this is.... Can you guess???? lol
Aaaandddd, we got someone else to play. Hmm, can you tell who it is?? Does the apple fall far from the tree LOL?????
He was having so much fun, he had to play some more!

So now you can feel like you were right there with us :).

I had a nice surprise today. A visit from my son Craig. I had a real lazy day. Was going to do so much, but plopped on the couch and watched some tv. When he came in, I got up and by the look on his face, I knew something was up. He has never been the type to be able to keep anything inside. His face shows it all. Then it hit me, and I said NO WAY. I had a feeling. When I was sitting on the couch, I could see out the deck door. And I just happened to see this little Mini Cooper ride by and thought how cute! A few seconds later Craig walked in. I ran to the door. Sure enough, it's his!!! He traded in his 350 Z for it. It's a 2003. Things are getting tough and he's making a few good choices on how to deal with them. This was one of them. When he first got his license, he always said he wanted a Cooper. He is soooo happy, and we are happy for him. I'll have to tease him and call it his "pooper". Linda and her son have one and that's what she calls it lol. Isn't it adorable??? All in all, it was a lazy day, a cold day, a day to do nothing. And that's just what I did. Even slept in late this morning. Will have to make up for it and do something tomorrow after church.
Stay warm everyone, and I hope your week ahead is a productive one!

Joanne said...

You know I was thinking - All that was needed on that certain someone's square head was that Elmer Fudd hat!

Joanne said...

Oh and you can tell Sharon that yes I nearly about feel off my daybed giggling!

Kathy (woolfind) said...

LOL, I think that Elmer Fudd hat is missing in action! But you are right, that would have been priceless. If that indeed is the one who owns it! How can you tell? Is it the scissors and tape measure around the neck? lol
