Random thoughts

My ash tree has almost lost all of its leaves, but the pin oak is hanging on to them.  Fall is definitely in the air---love fall!

When my daughter Chelsea moved to Boston the Red Sox won the World Series.  She moved to New York and the Yankees won.  In August she moved she moved to San Francisco and last night the Giants won the World Series...The Royals  are hoping that her next move will be to Kansas City.

I am getting ready to go to McGown Teacher's workshop.  Last year was my last year as Assistant Director so I am going to go and just be one of the gang...I am not teaching a piece this year...just taking part in the Thursday program on Color planning and dyeing.  I prepared a couple of dye projects that I will do a "dry demo" of.  The workshop is held at Lake Texoma near Pottsboro.  It looks like we are going to have wonderful weather.

 Watch for the February issue of Early American Life magazine.  There is going to be an article on Rug Hooking.  Edyth O'Neill is working on this article and I am happy to say that I am being included in the article---shipped a couple of my rugs to them for photographing.  I love features that promote our wonderful art of Rug Hooking!  Watch for it.

I went for my longest run yesterday since my half marathon.  I ran for about an hour in the afternoon.  I am definitely a better morning runner...I don't like afternoon runs.  I am going to run in a 5K race in Dennison Texas on Saturday---it is near where the workshop is being held so I thought it might be fun.  I am also going to run in the Gobbler Grind the Sunday before Thanksgiving...another 5K.  They also have a half marathon but I don't think I'm quite up to doing another one right now.

Today is Election day---don't forget to vote!


  1. I definitely think the Royals should make Chelsea an offer!!! They pay those players a fortune and they can't win - surely they would think Chelsea is a good investment! And, she would be nearby!!! Have fun at teacher's workshop. A.

  2. So looking forward to seeing both of you in Edyth's article. As I am a very newbie hooker, your blog is always such an inspiration! Thanks so much, Becky
