I'M BACK ! ~ ! ~ !
Class starts at 10 a.m. with a house tour and showing them the various rugs that I've done and then we start hooking. There's also time out for lunch and we hook till 4 p.m. These girls really got a lot accomplished in their time here ~ I'm very proud of them!
This is Dara's crow ~ my friend since 12 years old ~ that's a long time, readers!!! Dara has been hooking on her own with help via emails and I think she's doing very well!
Peggy did this little lamb ~ she was the one brought along by her friend! I think she said something like 'she's gotten me into a lot of things but this one was the most fun'!!! That was a good thing!
Tonya hooked the crow and gave it a little different wing design ~ I like that ~ it will show up better when the rest of the crow is hooked around it! They all are creative in some fashion or another and I could see that in the little things they chose to do! We had a great afternoon together and I'm sure they'll continue on their journey ~ hookers in the making!!! What's not to love!
Ta da!! Sonny made a driftwood tree for us! Looks good doesn't it? Those nice lake-washed pieces of driftwood are perfect colors for our lake place!
This weekend was Sonny's 50th class reunion!! He has had this '67 Corvette for nearly 25 years and did a lot of work on it this past month or so getting it ready to show off to his old buddies!! We drove it to the afternoon festivities on Saturday ~ it brought the old guy a great deal of pleasure!! Mostly, he just talks about his car ~ one of our lake friends thought it was a figment of his imagination! Maybe it will be on the road more this summer!!
We've had a little bump in our road the past couple of weeks. Sonny had cellulitis in his leg ~ he was off for a week and on part days last week ~ very nervewracking on my end and very aggravating to him to be sidelined for a bit. He's on the mend ~ we had a great Memorial Day weekend at the lake ~ went to Put-in-Bay on Saturday and Kelley's Island to our friend's birthday party on Sunday!! But when he tried to work all day last Tuesday, he pushed it too far. We're hoping this week goes better!! It's enough to drive a good woman to drink!! In fact, Sonny always says you don't have to drink to live here ~ but it sure does help!!! Bottoms up, friends!!!
Hope all is well wherever you are!
