Thursday Hooking

Fun day with the girls at Grant Street Woolworks yesterday.  Got there a little later than usual, and Linda had some shoppers that were there and gone already. Everyone was busy working on something.

Amy, Marilyn, and Diana were all huddled together.  Marilyn was trying to help Diana with her crocheting. She was trying to find a mistake in it. Took quite a while, but Marilyn found it.  Meanwhile, Diana hooked on her fox.

A new person to the group is Alice below. She is starting on a star.  Making great progress!

Teresa has been making these sunflowers for a show she was doing that happened to be today. I'm sure she sold out :)

And Nancee has been working on a Maggie Bonanomi design.

I forgot to take a picture of the punch needle I am working on. Will be selling some things at the Log House this Christmas. So far, so good :).

Linda has been starting up the hook ins again on a weekly basis. I'm sure she will send out an email if something comes up and she can't hold it.  During the Summer everyone is busy, and the hook ins were slow.  Glad that things are picking up again!  So if you aren't busy on a Thursday, stop on by!

I did get my Fall decorations out on Wednesday. I don't put a ton out like I do at Christmas time, and I'm thinking I'll even cut back some at Christmas this year. Less to put away after it's all over :). Looking forward to some punching  time after I get my chores done tomorrow!  

Hope you all have a Creative weekend!!.

Annual Power Day

What a Beautiful Saturday to take a ride on the motorcycle out to Hagerstown Md to their Annual Power Day event at the Volvo plant.   Lots of entertainment for the employees and their families along with being open to the public.  I think one of the big attractions is driving a truck for a buck :).  Did this many years ago with the kids.
I was able to remember to take a few pic's of some older Mack trucks.

 some before shots before they finished the above pic.

and just a fun one that caught my eye.

After we ate and George gave me another tour through the plant to see some new things going on, we headed off on the bike to West Virginia to a coworkers home who was having a picnic for several of the people George works with. Wish I could have taken pic's of the ride, but very hard to do on the back of the bike lol.  So I just enjoyed it for all of us :).  A truly relaxing day.
The weather could not have been more perfect for the ride home as well in the evening.  Not real keen on driving in the dark, but there weren't too many people on the road, so that was nice.

The temps are going to be lower this week, so I think I'll take advantage and get some outside work done during the day and hoping to get some hooking or punching done in the evenings.

Have a Creative week ahead!!!
