The day started off slow and then some started arriving---it was good to get back into the groove.
Thanks Amy for bringing the Lawrence girls over---hope your group last night had a good time.
Congrats Carole on the new grand baby---she is precious!
Jean---thanks for making the trip over and your wool you left is on it's way---I hope you have more confidence on getting started on your rug---it will be beautiful!
Anne---love the new cat rug---it will be great fun!
Anne H.---hope Birches will be finished soon---keep at it or Cheryl will be after you.
Don't forget about purchasing raffle tickets for the State Line Rug Hooker's rug to be awarded at the Lenexa Hook-in on February 25th---here is the rug again:
Tonite will be an early to be night as I have an early morning 6AM flight tomorrow---but will have plenty of time to rest when I get to my destination. We have cashed in air miles and Marriott points to make this trip to the Caymen's. My husband is a scuba diver and will be diving 4 days---I plan to snorkel, run on the beach, swim, shop, read books, eat seafood and even run in a 2 mile race called Keep the Resolution on Saturday morning---I thought it would be fun to say I ran in a race outside the US and come home with a t-shirt commemorating the event---someday I need to come up with a hooking project using all my race t-shirts---not ready to cut them up yet but it is in my mind to do something with them.
The weather in Kansas has been so mild this year---am hoping it continues all winter---nice not to have to worry about the weather and the roads.
I am looking forward to several camps and workshops when I get back. In February I will be in Baton Rouge at Red Stick and in March at Yellow Rose in Texas. The 25th of February I will new vending at the Lenexa Hook-in---if you have never been you might want to consider coming---so much fun!
I love texture---here is a close-up that I took on the beach in Bodega Bay!
Here is a link to an antique button button on Etsy---inspiration for design comes in many forms---I see a great chair pad design in this button!
Well it is getting light now so it is time to get busy---much to do today!
Have a great week.
