It was a VERY good weekend, though as always, not enough hours in the day or days in the weekend.
Bright and early Saturday morning hooker Melissa and I headed to Ann Arbor, MI, for a hook-in. On the way we stopped and picked up the Evening Stitcher, Bobbie. Can you say wool heaven? At least a half dozen vendors selling the most wonderful wools. I behaved myself and only bought a half yard of wool and Kris Miller’s book on finishing techniques. Hooker luck was with me as I won a door prize and the third prize in an additional fundraising raffle. Oh, I so wanted to be the second place winner – over 11 yards of hooker’s crack, but my winning was a hand turned maple bowl, perfect for snippets. I even managed to pull a few loops on my rug!
Several years ago at the fall In the Spirit of Friends Show, I almost bought a small hanging cupboard Bobbie had for sale. It was not old, but a well made reproduction even having been made with square nails. Can you believe she gifted it to me? How sweet and thoughtful! This summer I hope to switch my hooking room with the guest room and will have the perfect spot for it!
Annie is so afraid she might miss something!
Isn't she wonderful? She can also be turned 180 degrees and hung that way, too.
Sunday morning Annie and I headed to a 5k run put on by a local rescue group, Love-a-Stray, NOT to run but to work at the Ohio Pug Rescue booth. It may have been Annie’s lucky day. A young couple, with no children, a fenced yard and two other dogs fell in love with that tongue and underbite. They already have two rescue dogs – a beagle mix and a puggle. They were looking for a playmate for the puggle and decided Annie would be a perfect addition to their home. They went home, filled out the application and since I had given the co-ordinator a heads up, she watched for their app, immediately called them and agreed that this may be a match made in heaven. Tonight I called them and set up the meet and greet for May 11 (the wife if out of town this weekend - darn!) and if Annie and their dogs don’t have any major issues, she will finally have her furever home. Yeah Annie! I’ve had her for about 7 ½ months and she’s very attached to me, but I know she will adjust quickly. Say a pug prayer that she is on her best behavior when she meets the other dogs!
AND . . . I won another raffle! They had a Chinese raffle and I won the red, white and blue raffle. (I was really hoping to win the tattoo basket . . .lol!) I think I need to go buy a lottery ticket! I didn't take everything out, but there is a cool tote bag, star pillow, dog door stop, dog bowl, dog toy, bag of dog food, water bottle and I think there's a patriotic blanket in the bottom. Maybe there are also some treats because Annie sure was interested in the basket.
Next post I will share rugs from the hook-in with you.
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
