Interwebz is down

We are having some technical difficulties and our internet connection is currently down.  It has been giving us fits for a while now and it finally died.  So we have decided to leave it off for a little while.  I will try to update from my phone when I can (like I am right now) but there are no guarantees it will work.  Please check back from time to time.  I really don't plan on this lasting long.  Thanks for understanding.

Oh, and here is the picture of my finished project.  Unframed but finished.  :-D

Without Further Ado......My First Hook-In!

(Please forgive me.  I am a little on the late side in posting this.  I got back home last Wed. but we have had lots of problems with our internet and computers.  So, to say the least, I am just now getting this done.  I had it mostly typed up and ready to go but I was planning on showing you how my piece turned out.  Unfortunately, that will have to wait as well because I can't find my camera cord and the only computer that is currently working (for now) won't take my SD card!  Grrrrrr!!!  So I will get that up just as soon as I can.  Thanks for understanding.)

So I went to my first hook-in this weekend with my sister Vicki.  There were rug hookers and wool everywhere you looked!!  It was kind of crazy but I had a great time.  My sister taught one of the four classes and I got to participate in that class.  Vicki was teaching needle felting (to be used on hooked rugs) while the rest were teaching about actual rug hooking.  Well since I don't do rug hooking, I just did my needle felting on a piece of wool fabric that isn't appropriate for rug hooking.  I love the way it turned out!!

There were three other ladies taking the class as well.  They were all so very nice to me.  They definitely made me feel very welcome and at ease.  This first picture is of me working on my project.  The second one is of I.T. (short for Itinia) working on hers.  She was so funny!  The third one is of Linda (in the pink) and Leslie (in the blue).  They were all such sweeties!

Here are the ladies with their finished projects.  Well, they were finished with the felting part anyways.  They still have to hook the rest of the rug.  Mine is still in the works at this point.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!  I know I did!  XD

Going on an Adventure!!

Relaxing time is over!  Tomorrow I will be going to Arkansas with my oldest sister.  There is a hook-in this weekend and I will get to learn a little bit about rug hooking and some more about needle felting.  And, it will give me some time away from home.  I am very excited!  I guess that means I should get some batteries for my camera.  Who knows what all neat stuff I will see and learn.  I just hope my husband and son can REALLY survive on their own for a week.  We will see!  You can check out some of my sisters stuff over at her blog.

Have a great week and I will see you after I get back home!
