getting back in the groove

After arriving home on Tuesday I have been working hard to get things back in the groove.  I got in lots of wool while I was gone so getting it washed, dried, folded and tagged for the hook-in and my booth in Greenwood has kept me busy.  I am anxious to get back in the dye pots at least one day before the hook-in but I did do some dyeing back in December knowing that I wasn't going to have much time.  Here are some pictures from Greenwood that I took after filling in yesterday. I also got my hair cut and colored---wow----did it need it---it had been almost 8 weeks!

Last night we had friends over for fried oysters---yum!  I am going to miss all the fresh seafood that we were able to get in Rockport.

I am looking forward to the Lenexa hook-in---if you are reading my blog stop by my booth and say "hi".  

I have worked on my rug a little bit a couple of evenings.  I have it right out in my living room where I can pick it up even if I only have a little bit of time.  I would love to have it finished for the Hook-in but not sure that will happen...we'll see.  I plan to watch the KU basketball game today so that will get me some hooking time.

This morning i am going to work on soon as I finish my coffee and the have a great day!


  1. Oh Boy, such a beautiful display of materials...slurp!!!
    Your rug is gorgeous
    You ARE a very busy lady..
    Enjoy your hooking....

  2. Geesh Anita!
    Your wool stash is staggering!! I wish I lived closer to you...I'd be at that booth every week. Glad you're settling in, back at home. Your runner is acting as inspiration to me as I learn to color plan. Did you design the pattern?

  3. No it was designed by Emma Lou Lais. It is Antique Floral runner and is 30 by 96. Anita

  4. Your wool display is amazing wish I could see it in person. Your Emma Lou rug is tempting me so, I love your color choices.
