Wrap up for a great week

What a great, busy  week.    I've had a busy week dyeing wool, working at my booth in Greenwood Mercantile where I met many wonderful women in town for Primitives of the Midwest sponsored by Quilter's Station in Lees Summit Mo.  Thursday was the day they visited the antique shops in Greenwood after their day of classes.  It was fun to be there and share my passion for rug hooking.  Today is their last day of classes---and maybe they'll be up for more shopping!

I had a session with a trainer at the gym who introduced me to the foam roller---it's like a deep tissue massage and it hurts!  I finally got a run in this morning.  It has been just too hot for me to run outside but I managed this morning.  Tomorrow morning is supposed to be a little cooler as well so I will plan another run tomorrow.

I am busy getting ready for a workshop in Eureka Springs.  One interesting challenge was do dye some wool to hook an aqua canning jar with the stems showing through for a wide cut rug.  I think I came up with some good choices.  If it works I will post a picture.  Here is my visual I worked from.

My hooking studio is a disaster---I have things all over the place.  I think I'd better get downstairs and get to work.

Have a great weekend.
