I've changed my schedule around with my mil, so that I could have Friday off to do what needs to be done around here. So I get to the hook in later. But it's all working out better for me doing it that way. When I got to the shop, I heard lots of laughter when I opened up the door. I knew it would be a good day!
Jill was busy gathering up wool to take with her to the hook in tomorrow in Lancaster, Pa. She was talking things over with Linda.
Her sister Beth was also gathering up supplies to take to the hook in. Between the two of them, there was wool dust flying off that Townsend lol. Marian was working on her Dark Chocolate Easter bunny. Wish I would have gotten a picture of it. Learned quite a bit about chickens yesterday. Thank you Marian!
Tracie was transferring a pattern, and Linda let her surge her pattern with a machine in the other room. Doris was watching her. It's so different to have hands on, rather than just watching. Linda was very nice to let her do that :).
Tanya was in the area with her job yesterday, and she packed that hooking stuff of hers so she could stop by! Loved having her. Here is the Pomegranate rug she is working on. My, this girl has had some late, late nights working on this. She has gotten a Lot done! It looks so pretty in person. We were trying to help her with deciding a background color. I'm pretty sure she is settled on a dark brown, and hopes to find some wool tomorrow at the hook in.
Genny stopped by too. Her rug she is doing for her daughter is progressing so nicely. I'm amazed from day one of this rug, how it has developed. What was bright, was now toned down by some of the brown she put in it, and she tea dyed the center portion. She was able to finish the center yesterday and even started on the border. I know she is anxious to finish it and move on to something else. Her daughter Julie is going to love it!
Before I left the house yesterday, I got the mail. I was waiting for a package, but didn't think it would come so fast. I love old rug beaters. I have two that are the same, and have them hanging under one of my rugs that I mounted in a shelf. They hang from the pegs. Well, I saw this one the other day on ebay, and just fell in love with how cute it was. It's only 15" long. When I opened up the box, I was thrilled. Now I just need to know where to display it. It was described as a rug beater/pillow fluffer...
I got the sweetest Easter hooked rug. I just love it. It took time to make that! Also a cute Easter towel, and an adorable little chick! Thank you to my Secret Pal.. "Just in case you read my blog" :).
Wow, this was the first time I got through writing my blog in a short amount of time. Thanks again Joanne for reminding me about updating with the new version. Much, much easier!
It's only 9:30 and I'm going to get my day going here by doing some cleaning. I want to open up the windows and put some music on to get me in the mood. Because of the late night last night, I didn't do my exercising this morning. But will ride 15 miles tonight on the bike after dinner.
Later I will be figuring out what I will be taking tomorrow to work on. I hope I can come up with something other than taking my hit or miss's, which is my last resort. It's going to be another beautiful day tomorrow, I can't wait!!! A car load is meeting up with Linda at the shop, and then following her. She's coming to my house first and then we will pick up Pat, and Sherry. Will remember my camera for sure!
Also this weekend is the retreat with AAPG. I'll have to work on something on Sunday after church. The theme this month is "baskets and blooms". I'm going to have to see if there is something in my file I can pull out..
I sure hope the sun is shining on you this weekend.... Get out and enjoy it~~~
