Spring Fever

Yesterday was a beautiful warm day here in is chilly this morning and expecting rain/snow mix with sun returning in the afternoon but  not warm until next week---in the 70's on Monday!  My husband is getting itchy to put our trailer back on our spot at Lake Pomme de Terre.  Sounds pretty good to me to but I don't think we are past getting below freezing.

I have spent the past two days in the dye pots---lots of yards of wool.   Today I hope to start pulling some things together for the Camp in Yellow Rose to see if I still need to get into the dye pots again.

I will be heading to Texas in two weeks---looking forward to some of that Texas hospitality!  I am excited to stop in Duncanville to see my old next door neighbor Lily---what a great friend and I  miss her.  It is strange to stay with her and see the house that we built in the 70's---I was 27 years old and working for Joske's.  I was living in Mesquite and would drive I-20 to Arlington.  I kept seeing this hilly wooded area from the interstate and one day after work I took the exit and fell in love with the area---I found a lot with a builder's name and went home and pronounced that I had found where I wanted to live---so we did in 1977 (I think)--- We moved from Texas to Alaska in 1991.  That is another story!

I wanted to post this information about this upcoming hook-in---I will be vending at this event---it sounds like a great event---put in on your calendar!

While I am on a roll, let me also mention that I will be in Alabama in May and received my class list yesterday so I will be contacting the students soon.

I also received the class list for Caraway in North Carolina in June and will be getting those e-mails out as well.

I am looking forward to both of these workshops---I was asked an interesting question yesterday---what part of rug hooking do I like the best---is it "hooking" or "dyeing"---or for me is in "teaching"---I think the thing I love most is the diversity that rug hooking allows me---never time to get bored---it allows me the freedom to put my effort in where I am at that point in time.  There are days that are frustrating and there are days that are relaxing---but I get to wake up and do something that I love to do---well, most of the time---I don't like the loading and unloading and I really don't like the paperwork part of it!

I will be teaching in Green Lake Wisconsin in September and have some openings in my class.  If you or anyone you hook with is looking for a great camp---check this one out!  It is a great camp.

I feel compelled to have at least one picture on this post.

So here it is:

This picture was taken in Green Lake, Wisconsin---so beautiful!

Well it is time to go get busy!

Have a great weekend!
