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!!
Thank goodness for air-conditioning! Only a crazy woman (or one with a show looming close on the calendar) would dye wool in this weather! Guess who that might be?! This is some of the marbleizing that I did this week ~ I absolutely love the results ~ each piece looks like a little work of art to me!
This is yesterday's dyeing ~ trying some lighter colors ~ a little out of the box for me but I like them a lot! Looks like flower wool!
And lots of that muddy blue that I used as the background for the bee chairpads. I still have a few of the paper patterns left to sell! I also got some bent scissors in today (Dara, yours are on the way tomorrow!) so I'll be bringing those along Saturday, too! And a few new patterns from a local gal!
Hope to see some of you on Saturday at Kingwood for the hook-in ~ we're gonna have some fun ~ and the extreme heat will be gone by then!! That's a good thing because I would melt into a puddle of grease if it was in the 90's like it is right now! Of course, I am on my way to the ballfield ~ Luci and Jordyn have a tournament game! Last night, I helped Luke at the concession stand ~ my second time in a week! Years ago, I helped out when my boys were playing ball ~ it never occurred to me that so many years later, I'd be back there selling hot dogs and pizza to families that are calling it supper! Just like the good old days!!
Okay ~ I'm on my way ~ to somewhere! Have a good evening!
