Another successful Quilt Event at the St. Joseph's School is behind us!! OH My Gosh! It was such a crazy ride these past few weeks getting ready for it this year! I had just begun to dye wool and my mom ended up in the hospital twice! Then... last week I came down with what I thought was a bad sinus infection so a trip to the Dr. for antibiotics and then after it didn't completely clear up a trip to the dentist showed I need a root canal on a lower tooth! Feeling pretty lousy I carried on and with help from my good friends and hooking buddies we pulled this show off and it turned out quite
I will let the photos speak for themselves!
I'm off to take a nice bubbly soak in the tub and put on my jammies!!!
Tomorrow will be putting the shop back together and possibly a little rearranging for Spring!!
Sold every last spec of that Black and White dotted wool!!
My friend Barb the Felted Soap lady drove up again from Oconomowoc, WI and stayed overnight at my Mom's. It's a good thing she did as we got a nasty little snow storm here overnight and the roads were horrific this morning!
Lisa and Cindy my hooking buddies braved icy and snowy roads this morning and drove 1/2 and one hour to help me out!! They demonstated and talked to interested people while I waited on customers!
Such a blessing these two.... and Sharon wanted to come also and help but.... can you believe.... she ended up in the hospital with a burst appendics! She is still in the hospital with complications so please keep her in your prayers!
We missed you Sharon.... get to feeling better soon!!!
Barb is going to kill me when she sees this photo!! LOL!! She was just beginning to eat the wonderful lunch they serve at the show and I came with the camera!! But she is a good sport I think!! Thank you Thank you dear friend!! We have so much fun!!
I think the smell of her lovely wool wrapped goats milk soap lured people right to our booth!!
It smells good enough to eat!!
And the kids who put on the show as their fund raiser found their way to the hooking frames to give it a whirl!! They were hooked after they pulled their first few loops and kept on hooking despite a group of boys who came by to see what had gotten their interest! The boys left after asking their own questions and seeing the girls weren't going to stop hooking to give them attention...hmmmm... a sign of the future perhaps!! LOL!!!
Well it was wonderful to see these young gals showing interest in an age old craft!!
Hope springs eternal that rug hooking will keep on growing here in northern WI!
I aim to be a part of it as long as I can!
Thanks to all who came out in the cold Spring snow storm today and supported our show!
The kids and I appreciate it very much!!
