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!!
This was our 2011 Blog Challenge display at the Sauder Rug Show! Friends Heidi, Donna & Arlene joined me at our lake place Tuesday thru Thursday and we made a field trip to Sauder on the opening day! We had a great time ~ we got there at 10 a.m. and left after Evelyn Lawrence's lecture that ended sometime around 8 p.m. It was a full day, believe me!!
Here's all the Blog Challengers ~ Maria Barton, Ali Strebel, Kris Miller and me!! I was hoping we could get a group photo and it all came together by the hair of our chinny chin chin!! Maria got there just as Kris was heading off to a class ~ I thrust my cell phone into some lady's hands and we crouched down on the floor and all smiled pretty real fast ~ and then the youngsters had to help this old girl get up!! It turned out pretty good for a cell phone photo ~ I left my camera at the condo ~ of all times to do that!
So, all my pictures will be from my phone ~ they aren't the best but there are quite a few ~ I'll be putting them up over several posts ~ so be waiting for your virtual trip thru the rug show!! We had a great time for sure!! Very inspiring!!
More to follow ~ I'm off to pay bills ~ I've been gone all week and went to Columbus to the wholesale market this morning ~ so I have to do a little work around here before I lose this good paying job that I have working for my husband!! Happy weekend to you!
