Ok, back to Brandywine. What a wonderful day it was. I teased everyone else not to be late when meeting up with Linda, and here I didn't get up when the alarm went off. BUT I was there on time and ready to go. Just not feeling so hot because I jumped out of bed so fast and I didn't eat. By the time we got there, I grabbed a cup of coffee and a trail mix bar, and I was good to go shortly after. We arrived early, but we weren't allowed in till 9:00. Seems others had the same idea of getting there early because there was a line of us just waiting. I was amazed at how fast the place filled up. And did it ever! A true Sea of Hookers!! Will start with showing you a shot of the room...
So here are a few rugs that I did manage to capture while walking around with my camera. I was bad at not taking too many. It was very crowded! And forgive me if I forget any names.
Here is Louise on the right with her friend. . Just love this rug to pieces!!!! And HUGE!
Here is Sharon standing over her rug and everyone else is around looking at it..
It was soooo pretty in person. I'm so glad she brought it for us to see....
Had to giggle at Sharon's camera case. It was a sock lol. Hey, it works!!
Another prim rug :)
Deb's rug is soooo different, just love it!
And speaking of new people to meet!! Here is another Kathy! Hey you, you made it on the Blog! Now I can put a face to the name :). She had stopped me earlier in the day and told me that she reads my blog. I was a little taken back at first because I don't think of this blog as reaching as many people as it does I guess. And when she told me her name, I knew she was the Kathy from NJ. What a coincidence, me too! We talked for a brief time, and then I said I would stop by her table a little later on. I'm so glad I did.... Here is the rug she is working on.
She was sitting with two of her friends. Here is Annette and her rug.. Hi Annette!!
And here is Patty, Hey there!!
Loved all of their rugs, and I hope I get to see them finished!! It as sooooo nice meeting you all. I had such a nice talk with them at their table. Who would have ever thought that I'd be recognized. I told Kathy at one point that I felt like I was being stared at a few times. (wondered if I had something on my face lol). But perhaps someone else recognized me too. It is just too funny to me. Kathy, I'm glad you stopped me and introduced yourself. And I hope to see you again :). Post on my blog when you can and let me know how you are doing, or drop me a line in an email to stay in touch.
The ride home went quicker than the ride there. It's a miracle that we got the back hatch closed to the Suburban. LOL, it was THAT FULL~~ My friend Beth said we should have gotten a picture of it. I wish I did!!! But I wish I would have gotten a picture of her Aunt's face when she saw it. Her mouth was wide open lol. Too funny!
When we got back, Linda and Janice went their ways. They were exhausted. Thank you Linda for the safe ride there and back. Much appreciated!! Sherry, Jill, Beth and I went out for a bite to eat for dinner and it was nice just relaxing with them and chatting about our day.
Well, it's almost midnight and my computer has been shutting off on me completely and then restarting. I will have to have my son take a look at it soon. But until then, I will be posting from my laptop. Not sure when that will be. All the excitement was this past weekend! I'm still on a high. So thrilled with what I purchased. I didn't get a shot of what I brought home, because the wool is washed, dried and put away already! I can just tell you what I got. Some wool of course, and I did behave myself, I don't care what Joanne says lol. I really didn't bring home too much, and then I bought myself a pattern called St. Nick, an adaptation from Spruce Ridge from Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farms. Also bought a small charm for my necklace of a fraktur flower, and I got a hand woven basket made from the women in Ghana. The money goes to them to help their families. I'll try and get a shot of that another day. Oh, and I bought a Christmas gift already.... I let Beth pick it out :).
I'm sure I am forgetting some things. I am just hurrying on here so my computer doesn't go out on me again.
Hard to believe that tomorrow is Wednesday already. I took the day off yesterday because I had to take care of a few things at my mil's home. I won't know what day it is as the week goes on. Change one thing and I'm all out of whack. And excuse any typo's in this post, I'm sure there are some.
Some good news today though. I got a call today that my son had his closing on his FIRST home! He has purchased a double wide mobile home. I am soooo happy for him. George and I will be going to see it tomorrow night after I'm out of Bible class.
Until my next post, have a wonderful week, stay warm (those cold temps are really sneaking in on us), and keep your hands busy......
