The hook in was quiet yesterday. Figuring the cold was keeping everyone home. I didn't get there until early afternoon. Had things to finish up around the house and then run a few errands. By the time I got there, Linda was all by herself. She got a lot done while it was quiet. She wrote out her Christmas cards :).
No one came until close to evening time. I managed to work on a special order of mini hooked pillow/pincushions that I received. I should be done with them soon.
There were 3 girls who did show up, and I got shots of their work and not them. A professional photographer I would never be lol.
This is Cherina's rug.
And Genny was doing some hand stitching. She is making tree skirts for her wool feather tree's.
Next time I will have to get a shot of the 3 new additions to the shop. After Thanksgiving, Linda brought back with her 3 guinea pigs that belonged to her Grandchildren. She'll be taking care of them for a while. (I think she is attached to them, and they aren't going anywhere lol ).. I'll introduce you to them in another post.
Today I was out running some errands and when I came back out of one store, I was shocked, totally shocked to see it snowing. And the ground was already starting to get covered. So whoever was the one who wished it, stop it! What a total mess it was. It was so cold out, that it immediately stuck and it was slippery. Took me half an hour to get home when it would normally take less than 10 minutes. People were slipping and sliding, and I had a fuel truck in front of me that couldn't stay in a straight line. Yes, I kept my distance! Even the tiniest incline in the road, and people had a hard time getting up it. Was finally happy to be pulling into the driveway.
Took my time getting the mail today. Too cold to run out there! But when I finally did, I was sooo happy to see a package for me. Our on-line group AAPG was having our Christmas swap. Deirdre drew up two designs and we picked one to create for our secret partner. Well, Lori had my name. Ooh, I was so excited to open the package, but waited until I cleaned up the kitchen. It was a mess. I wanted to sit and relax while openening it. Lori chose to do the sheep pattern. Oh my, it is so sweet. She had needle punched it. I found out she used yarn for the sheep. I hope the close up, you will be able to see it. Along with that, she gave me a cross stitched pillow, some candy, a fabric candy cane with a bell on the tip, a tin of lip balm and a gorgeous Red piece of hand dyed wool. I am just tickled with her generosity. Thank you Lori for such a wonderful Christmas package!
Tomorrow I will be meeting up with a friend for a cup of coffee in the morning. There is a really great coffee shop here in Shippensburg. They have specialty coffees, and I only treat myself to one of them every so often. They are a bit pricey. But oooooh sooo good :) And in the Summer, their coffees taste wonderful frozen... Right Joanne? A real dessert!
Other than that, depending on the weather, I may run to a few stores, but then I will be in for the weekend. I want to curl up in my chair and do some hooking and stitching. I feel it's time to put the dvd of White Christmas in while I'm hooking :)
Wishing you all a warm and fabulous weekend!!
