I really should be......

I really should be gathering up my things for tomorrow. But I'll stop for just a bit and update the blog from yesterdays hook in!
It was a busy week, but we were able to relax yesterday and hook and punch.  I have to first give a shout out to my "cousin" Karen Harris who came all the way from Virginia 3 1/2 hours away to visit the shop. See what blogs can do??  I had gotten an email from a Karen on Tuesday saying her and her husband might be in the area and wanted to know if the shop would be open. I kept thinking to myself "who is this Karen"?  She wrote as if she knew me.  I know the memory is not good, but it was driving me nuts.  I did not know Karen, but she sure knew me, Linda and the shop from my blog :).  She did some shopping and we had her fill out a card that we keep on file with contact information for any future classes that they might be interested in.  That is when I found her last name was Harris.  It's going to be an easy name to remember and I teased her about being my cousin Karen.  We had a good laugh :) !   She sent me another email the next day telling me how she enjoyed the shop and plans on coming back. Well Cousin, it will be wonderful to see you again! Glad you made it back home safely. It was her husbands Birthday that day as well, so they were off to do something that he wanted to visit ...  I hope his Birthday was a good one!

Barb came yesterday morning but didn't stay long. She was working on a mini quilt.

Margo brought her pillow all stuffed to show us. Turned out great!

Sherri was whipping her Halloween cat. Too cute of a border, don't you think?

Nancee was away on vacation and said she took wool to work on her rug, but ended up not. I'm glad she enjoyed herself and let the hooking go.  Now she can get herself back into it.

Jill was almost finished with her owl that she hooked into the wool. She will be making it into a pillow. Cute!

And Genny, by the time she left had  filled in all the background on the left side of the piece.

I was working on some punch needle pins, but never took a picture.  I will be taking pictures of the things that I have accomplished a little later on. That is what I should be doing right now. We have a show tomorrow out at the Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum.  Hoping the weather holds out and doesn't do anything till the show is over. The pins won't be done, but will be done by Colonial Day in just a few short weeks away.  I need to gather up all my pieces and get them in containers. If you are in the area, stop on by to see us. There will be 5 or 6 of us in our booth.

I was off to dye group this morning.  I hooked just a little of my project, but not quite happy with it. So when the hustle and bustle is over this weekend, I will concentrate and see where I will go with it. Hope to share a picture of that  with you too. I didn't stay long because I had grocery shopping to do. I had planned on doing some yesterday morning. That never happened. Then I thought I would do it on the way home from the hook in. Well, I was too tired and afraid that I would get a second wind. That would not be good either. Over a hundred dollars later, it's finally all put away. Unbelievable on how the prices are going up on groceries too.  Hope the girls continued to hook after I left. We even took a break after lunch (which consisted of a small yogurt and some peanuts... told you I needed to do some grocery shopping! We were out of everything lol)  to take a walk along the creek where Joan lives. It was a nice stroll and I left when we got back to her house.

So much going on this week. From the earthquake which was quite bazaar to experience and I hope I never experience another one, to the Hurricane that is coming up the East Coast. My prayers go out to all of you who will get hit. I'm not sure what if anything we will get. I'm hoping it's just rain and not the heavy winds. May God protect you, your family and your home.

Time to get myself in gear and start packing.  Hubby will be home shortly for dinner!

Thanks for the GS update. What fun to have a new "cousin".
Good luck at the show tomorrow.
I'll be saying a prayer that everyone in the storm's path is safe!
Hugs :)

Kathy, you have been so busy, I wonder when you would have time to get grocery. I hope that you have a great time with your friends at the show tomorrow.

We are supposed to get the tail end of that hurricane with lots of rain on Monday. I too pray that everyone are safe from harm.

Have a great weekend. JB

Thanks for the hook-in update. It's nice to see what everyone is working on.
Good luck at the Farm Museum. It's a delightful place to visit. You should have lots of interested spectators!

Thanks for the GS update - still for me it's NOT THE SAME as being there! Wahhhhh (and yes, I'll take some cheese with that whine!) Knock 'em dead tomorrow with sales!

Have fun at the show today Kathy! We are in hurricane prep here and if we had waited until yesterday to get our groceries we would be SOL... I took care of ours on Wednesday... ya' know.. water, coffee grinds and toilet paper... what else could someone possibly need, right? ;-) Love the pn Genny is working on!

Kathy sorry I couldn't make it to GS last Thursday - we had a terrible rain storm here. You certainly have been a busy bee!!!! I'm busy girding for the storm - flash lights out, candles in place, extra water in containers and Eloise hiding from it!
