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!!
We had a fun little class here in my little studio! Vivian and MJ are new hookers!!! I love being part of that!! We had such a fun day ~ we hooked ~ we laughed ~ we ate! Vivian and I have been friends for a long time now ~ Sonny built their new home years ago and since we both like the same style of home and furniture and do shows ~ we have lots in common. I just met MJ at my last show and she was so anxious to learn the art of rug hooking ~ we all hit it off and are planning a little field trip in a few weeks ~ new friends ~ I love that! New hookers ~ I love that, too!
Congratulations to my Seattle daughter-in-law, Coni ~ on the right! She participated in the 3-day walk for breast cancer research for the third year in a row!! Her team was 81 strong and at last report was the highest earning team in the country ~ over $205,000 pledged for the Valley Girls team!! That's amazing! They walk 60 miles in 3 days ~ and my son and the three kids cheer her long the way!!! I hear that two of my Ohio daughters-in-law are going to do the walk next year!!! I'll be on the side-lines cheering them on!!!!
That's it for today ~ Heidi will be here shortly and off we go to our class in Tipp City! It will be fun and we're looking forward to learning lots of new stuff!!! Have a good weekend, everybody!
