THIS WEEKEND'S SHOW ~ ~ ~
Lauren and Linda ~ friends/bloggers/hookers ~ met up at the show and stopped by to see us! They were having fun (they met each other at the proddy class here in the spring) and I swear Linda came by three hours later ~ still there!! She brought me some of her newest pieces to see ~ Linda is a woman on a hooking mission!! Stop by and visit their blogs ~ Lauren is a very frequent blogger ~ Linda, not often enough!
This little rug has a new home ~ someone helped themselves to it and a wool appliqued runner, this weekend! Can you believe it? It was before the show even started ~ while we were setting up and wandering around ~ not paying close enough attention to what was going on around us! It really saddened me ~ I've done shows for 30 years and to my knowledge, never had anything taken before. A hooked rug, no matter the size, takes a lot of time and effort to create ~ but even though that happened ~ I won't let it destroy my trust in the people who come to a show ~ I even let a gal take wool home and send me a check this week because she was out of cash! The incident will make me be more watchful in the future ~ and maybe it will be a lesson to all of us who put ourselves out there to pay a little closer attention!
We stopped on the way home for a really nice dinner at The Skyway with our friends Vivian and Lou. We were all really tired and it was great to stop at a nice quiet spot ~ like the old supper clubs ~ with very attentive waitstaff and no music blaring and low lighting ~ a real treat at the end of a long day!
Sonny, his son Brian and my son, Ted are all up at Lake Erie on a fishing trip today! Hope they bring home supper!!!!!! It's a nice sunshiny day here ~ hope it is up there!! Tad and I stayed home ~ I was just too tired to pack up and go up there yesterday! I thought I would get a lot done today but so far, not so much!!
Have a good week, everybody!! Enjoy this fall weather ~ I love the way the air feels and smells in the fall!
