Back to Crazy ~

My 3 day hooking retreat in Millersburg was GREAT fun.  More on that in the next post.  Now it's back to reality finishing goods for the upcoming Danville, IN hook in where I will be vending on the 7th & 8th of September.
A few pictures from the Asian Lantern Festival at the Cleveland Zoo.
Grandson Jake less than thrilled at having his picture taken.
Once it got dark, it was TOTALLY IMPRESSIVE.


I finished my little mat that I plan on attaching to a vintage picnic basket.  On to the binding :(
I wanted to show my progress from my Rebekah L Smith class on Saturday but there's not enough to show.  Hopefull I will find time to work on it soon.
I've been sorting worms.  We all know how they multiply while we sleep :)  Many more to sort.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

OMG! Is that really Jake?? He has grown like a weed just like my grandson who, at almost 15 is over 6'. Oh my!!!!!!!

Your mat is really cute. I am still working on my Fall man in the woods rug. I won't do another this big for awhile. Too impatient, too many more I want to do.

The Chines lanterns are amazing.

The festival looks like a fun event and love the tomato worms.
Beautiful little mat and worms are one thing I never had too many of, I usually cut as I go.

Those lanterns are pretty and I bet more impressive in person. At our fireworks display someone had fleon red chinese lanterns, so remembering those I know this was a grand sight! Hope you do good at your show, but will miss you at Holly. :-( Janice

What an incredible sight. I love all of it lit up like that.
My son is going to be in Cleveland at the end of the month.
I have tried to talk him into letting me tag along.
Jake looks so grown up.
I love your rug. I have been hooking and hooking on my rug and I never seem to get anywhere.
You have had quite a busy year.
