All images and text are the property of me, Alice. If it's my pattern, ask and I will make one available ~ if it's someone else's, I will direct you to that person. Thanks for honoring the creativity of myself and others!
My life is a busy one ~ my husband, Sonny, and I have a blended family of 6 kids, 5 of them married and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren! We have a building business and I am the Office Personnel, if you know what I mean!! I also have a small rug hooking business in my home studio, where I sell as-is wool and my own hand-dyed wool, beautiful frames and stands that my husband builds and some finished hooked pieces, etc. I would love to hook every day, all day, as I'm sure many of you would ~ but that's rarely possible!! Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll find A DAY IN THE LIFE ~ ~ ~ entertaining!!
Yes ~ that's what we had yesterday at our friend, Lori Corelis' home!!! She had three of us in for brunch ~ a yummy asparagus strata, scones, fresh fruit and a spring green salad!!! A little mimosa started the day!!! These great stitched pieces are projects from Workt by Hand, that she and her sister Lanna attended recently! One is from last year, but the circles are this year's stitchery! LOVE the colors!
Lori and her husband, have a great house with lots of collections! This one is a gathering of 'peck peck birds'! None of us had ever seen any and here is a whole flock of them!! They wind up and peck and jump around ~ great little pieces made from mohair as I remember!!
Sherry brought us all curly willow branches to share ~ I haven't seen those either!! It's amazing what I don't know about!! They looked great in this crock ~ we should have left them all ~ but we didn't!!
This is a little part of Lori's studio ~ she's a very well-known bear designer and creates wonderful things right here in this room, that is a work of art in itself!!
We had a great day and thank you, Lori, for letting me take a few pix to commemorate our get together! Our other friend is Pat Knapp ~ she and her husband owned The Village Idiot Antique Shop for many years ~ always a delight to be with and a wealth of knowledge about primitives!!
Okay ~ I'm off ~ there's just more fun to be had than I can handle!! Ta ta for now friends!!
