Of course there were hugs to be made. Lauren is too funny about having her picture taken. For some reason, throughout the day, I kept hearing "would you put that camera away?" LOL. But HOW could I ?
Pat and Doris also came to meet Lauren.
Lauren shared with us a picture from an old rug that she will be doing it in punch needle. I'm sure it will look beautiful.
So happy that we could have a group shot. A real treat to have us all together!!
After Lauren and Mary left, I was able to take some pictures of what else was going on. Margo, a new hooker was there in the morning color planning a new rug she will be working on. She brought along these 2 pieces that she hooked. The hit and miss circle was her very first piece, and the second is going to be a pillow. It is her last name. She cut all her wool before she left for her new project, since she will be going away for a week or so. Looking forward to seeing what she accomplishes while she is gone.
Nancee, Nancee, Nancee....... Last week she had a heck of a time color planning her rug. I felt so bad when she left. How frustrating for us when we just don't like something we hooked. We all thought it was nice, but when you don't like it, and can't live with it, then OUT it comes! She ripped it all out and yesterday we started all over. She had more of an idea of the colors she wanted. Sooo, back to throwing wool here and there until she felt comfortable with it. She will be taking a little vacation too and won't be taking it with her, but knowing Nancee, when she comes back, there will be a hook in that foundation and we will see next week what she has accomplished! I'm sure she is excited to get started on it.
Joanne joined us again this week! Love having her here. Sure wish she lived closer so she could be there every week!! She brought some wool and wires to make up some feather trees. She's got the routine down pat. Definitely a production line for her :).
Linda was taking a break from hooking her project.
Bonnie seems to really enjoy the hooking also. They didn't bring anything with them to work on last night. They planned to just stopping in and sitting for a while. How surprised they were when they realized how late it was when they left. These 2 have also been friends for many, many years. So cute to see how best friends stay together and know each other inside and out. They always have a story and keep us in stitches.
Sherri also stopped by. She had said she was going to, and then when it got later, we thought maybe something came up. She was going to bring her friend Caroline, but plans were changed. Sure hope she makes it next time Sherri comes out! Sherri was busy whipping her rug.
I was actually able to get some hooking done. I finished up the linen I had on the frame. Just making little things to sell in the Fall.
Looking forward to hopefully getting another piece of linen and starting something else this weekend. Need to go through my idea papers.
Now it's time to figure out what chore I will start with first, before I can have some free time. Not in the mood to do any chores, but as usual, they have to be done. Maybe if I put some blinders on, I can get them done real quickly and be done with them!
Not sure yet what we will do for this Holiday weekend. Haven't even talked to my kids about it. I think Nicole is working Monday, so perhaps it will be Sunday that we can all get together. I have off on Monday, so it gives me an extra day to play :). Hoping I use it to create!!
Wishing you all a Safe and Happy 4th of July weekend!
