I spent Saturday and Sunday unpacking and repacking for Buckeystown Workshop---4 big boxed on their way via UPS this morning at 8 AM on our way to the lake. It turned out to be a good day to leave because our street is being resurfaced and we had to be off the street from 7AM this morning until 6 PM tonight.
I actually got to spend some time hooking today on the way to the lake---I am doing another variation on a Grenfell mat for a class that I am teaching at Teacher's workshop---I wanted to do one with some yarn and with a small border so it will be easier to make it round---here is the start of it. Did you know that some of the best Grenfell mats had 200 loops per square inch---now that is fine work!!!
Here are some picture from my class at Green Lake.

We had a wonderful week at camp---the weather couldn't have been more perfect! Green Lake is a great camp in a beautiful lake setting.
This was taken early one morning when I went on a bike ride.
these were my lamb lollipops on Hooker's night out at the Treasury restaurant ion ripon---so yummy!!!
this is a pattern called Sharon's Halloween Yard , a Primco design---I hooked this about 12 years ago but it seemed like a good idea to pull it out for the rug show
These are pictures from my mini class---a hooked journal cover with a pumpkin on the cover
I was very excited to see this rug hooked by Karen---she started it at a workshop that I taught several years ago with The Loopy ladies in Libertyville IL---what a great job she did! It is an inch mat---I wonder how many inches there really are.
My poor husband went to pick up the jet skis that were bing fixed 1 1/2 hours away---he got back and the small jet ski wouldn't work---he was not happy to say the least and had to turn around and drive back---I guess he will need some pampering tonight---and a beer!
Okay that is it for today!
