I had no idea I could possibly be this busy in retirement. I thought I would have so much time to hook and stitch and do all sorts of fun stuff. HA! I haven't pulled a loop in what seems like weeks. If I make it until Saturday I will finally be able to breathe. The ATHA biennial is in Cleveland this year. This afternoon I went and helped set up the backboards for the rug display. Tomorrow I will attend the rug show and shop the vendors. (Now that could be dangerous!) Thursday I am back again taking a class with Cynthia Norwood. Rumor has it that this is the last class she will be teaching. She is one of the reasons I fell so in love with primitive rug hooking. I read her first book from cover to cover.
I will probably need to leave class a little early (darn) because I need to head to the Pine Tree Barn in Wooster to set up for another hooking event, Hooked in the Valley, where friend Melissa and I are vending. If you are anywhere in the area, be sure to stop by. There is no charge to enter.
Pretty Girl was suffering from some severe intestinal distress. Her med kicked in, but today she would not drink any water. I tricked her by adding water to her chicken and rice and she gobbled it all down. What a little stinker.
Last week at guild, Halloween rugs and such were displayed. Here is a sampling of them.
And lastly, remember my goldenrod dye pot faux pas? (I glugged bleach instead of vinegar.) The wool got mixed in with other wool so no picture, but surprisingly I did not ruin it. It just turned out a little more mustardy/yellow than the previous ones so for that I am happy.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
