From Our Hands & Hearts ~

Melissa, Bobbie and I are beyond excited to have been asked to once again vend at this outstanding show in November.  If there's any way you can possibly attend, you won't be disappointed!  You can read more about it here.

I've made some progress on my current Magdalena adaptation.  Once I stopped looking at pictures of the original and those that others have hooked, the hooking is a bit easier and I'm struggling less.  I guess I just need to "do my own thing" and not worry that it's a copy of the original.

Not much else going on.  I spent most of the day running and still haven't finished all the errands.  I must say I am enjoying not getting up at 5:30 in the morning :)

I'm in disbelief that it is officially autumn.  We are still having exceptionally warm weather but it cools down nicely in the evenings ~ perfect weather for sleeping with the windows open.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

We are FINALLY getting cool weather here in AZ and I actually opened the windows and turned off the AC!!!! WONDERFUL!!!!
Hope you enjoy your weekend, my friend!

Yes this weather is nice, but it's not summer! It will end soon and I'm hoping it won't turn to damp cold weeks. Congrats - may make the show this year but everything is always last minute.

If only I lived close enough to come to the show! Too warm here for Fall and so very dry too. Cooler weather is supposed to be on the way and it won't be soon enough for me. I worked for years in a hospital and remember those 5am mornings. Now I usually get up at 6 or 7 which is not so bad. Love seeing the progress on your rug!

Oh how I wish I could go to the show...or somehow meet you in person! Congrats though on the honor....I love anything that your hands create. And looks like I missed one huge change in your life....Belated congrats on the retirement!! As if you didn't put me to shame in the projects department while you were working fulltime...I can only imagine what you will spit out now that you're a lady of leisure. ;o) Hope all has been well.... Miss ya.... Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Wish I lived closer, would love to go. We have a few shows in our area but not that many vendors, but the big art show that also has crafters and antiques, is on my list for next month.

When I clicked on it I saw Boston on the second line my heart started to say YES! Then I saw Ohio nuts! One of these days I will make it to Ohio to meet you.
or maybe you will make it to Star Island.
I love that you are going off on your own I copied a couple of rugs and I feel that I used no creativity of my own.
lucky lucky you doing what you love now.
