Whew! What a busy weekend. I thought I’d have time to finish Henny Penny, but I didn’t even have time to pick up the hook. I did get the lawn mowed and the few annuals I bought planted. I still need a few more for my urns, etc. I’d love to find the time to work in the yard this week, but I doubt that will happen. No time and even though I prefer summer over any other season, it is going to be stifling hot.
I spent a couple hours boxing items from the estate sale. Hopefully I will be done with that soon and can get the items donated. Then it will be on to getting the house ready to list. A few things need to be done first. My mom passed away when she was 90 and was feisty almost until the end. A year or two before she died, she fell in the living room and broke a hole in the drywall. The little stinker put a chair in front of it so I would not see it! It wasn’t until MUCH later I discovered it and she was not shy in telling my why she moved the chair. What a gal!
Katie’s hook-in was wonderful ~ as always. It was a picture perfect day and the Kingwood Center is a beautiful venue. Unfortunately I did not have time to walk the gardens. Sheila, a friend I met a couple of years ago through blogging, had just finished a very large rug (of which I failed to get a picture!), so she kept me company most of the day. Thanks, Sheila!
I shared a table with Larry Ault, Alice was across the room and Heidi was in the opposite corner. She made me laugh when she pulled out a piece of chartreuse wool and said she considers that a neutral. No "dirty hooking" for Heidi!

This is the first time I have sold my spoon jewelry at a hook in or show and I am pleased with the amount of sales I had. I received many compliments on my items. Anything to help support my habit!
I didn't have much time to look at the rugs since they were in a different building, but I did manage to take some pictures. Here are a few of them.
Blogger is giving me fits tonight!!! I am beginning to understand why some of you are switching!
I hope your week is off to a good start!
