I hope this post finds everyone happy and healthy. We travelled to Manhattan Kansas for Christmas with my daughter Sarah. We had a wonderful dinner on Christmas night---I got to play "grandma" to a friend of Sarah's daughter---here is a picture of me with Hannah.
I also managed to get a lot of hooking done on my "Houses in the Birches"...here is the picture i took when I quit hooking last night.
As you can see I am nearing the end---it has been a good project for this time of year as it did not take a lot of concentration. I was able to watch some good movies and still hook. My daughter Sarah really took a liking to it so I think it may find a home at her house---I think I am going to frame it---it is large---about 32 by 40 I think.
It is cold and dreary here in Kansas City---hope to go for a run after breakfast.
I am having a open studio day for my students on January 9th and am planning on going to The Barn rug hooking retreat January18-20th. Also I am teaching a class for our guild on January 12th on making hooked journal covers with heart designs.
Have a party to go to tonight and am planning a quiet New Year's eve dinner with friends---and maybe some card games.
Have a happy and safe New Year's.
