More ATHA ~

Once again blogger was giving me fits.  I was able to upload a grand total of ONE picture.  I was not going to let blogger get the best of me, so I grabbed my laptop and headed to the nearest Mickey D's to see if the WiFi would make a difference.  Believe it or not, it did, so is it my ISP that is causing problems?  It took much longer than it should have, but I was able to upload more pictures.  It just isn't a post without lots of pictures!  I think I need to find a twelve step program because I am addicted!!!

Here are a few more pictures from Maria Barton's class. 


Hookers hard at work.

Here's Shari who was also in my Barb Carroll class.

We joked that she was one of the class overachievers.  Here is what she accomplished in the class.  Cute!

And here is what the underachiever {me} got done :)

I believe the convention center was called the Eden Resort.  Look at the wonderful fall display at the lobby entrance.  There were actually two of these.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Taylor whose blog is Wool Nuts.  I think he is giving me the stink eye.

For two days I looked for Lee (LeLoops) without success.  Kind of hard when you don't know what she looks like.  Saturday at lunch she just happened to come sit at my lunch table.  I guess it was meant to be :)

This summer I had the pleasure of meeting Doris (Moments in Time) and we made plans to have lunch.  I was so happy that it worked out.  She is the most delightful hooker you could possibly meet!  She gave me the sweetest gifts which included a stained glass "rug hook" to wear as a necklace.  I will show that at a later time.  Annie was very happy with the treats that were included.

Heather Ritchie was signing her book.

I have so much more to share with you if blogger will co-operate.
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

  5. Lauren, it's so nice of you to post pictures of Lee from LeLoop so now I can remember her better and of dear Doris. It's always nice to see blogger friends on blogs.

    Your pumpkin is great. I love the quilly eyes. I've seen quilly eyes instructions in Rug Hooking magazine by Kris Miller.

    Take care. JB
