I have not figured it out - but I live a boring life all week long and then comes Saturday and everything happens. The exception this week was that I went to the hook-in on Thursday at Grant Street Woolworks. I have been trying to do that because the companionship is so good there. I find something new in the shop each time I go. Linda has the shop jam packed with little things - many of them are just things that ladies like and have nothing to do with hooking but all are interesting. This is what I saw this week. She has collected and put on sale a collection of gourds that are made into lamps and are so cute as to be irrestiable. This group is very halloween like.
Apparently Linda went overboard when buying these for the shop - so her husband Rick put up the following sign:
On Saturday morning I went to the ATHA Guild meeting held at the Boonsboro Library. This was the month that our purple swaps were due. I think that 9 of us participated. I really forgot to count all of the swaps. One was more interesting then the other. We drew names from a basket to see which one we got. It was a fun time and we plan to do a Christmas swap. Below are pictures of the finished swaps.
The one I got is on the far left. Pumpkin man with moon and cat.
I got the one done by Joan and I really love it. Thanks Joan.
After the meeting I went to my daughters house in Hedgesville for the family fried chicken feast. It was a lot of fun. We got into a pattern of nostaliga stories and we all laughed so hard I'm sure there were wet undies in the crowd! I forgot to take pictures I was so involved - but finally I "came to" and took just the following two.
I talk so much about my grandson Richard that I thought you might like to see a picture of his wife, Sherri, and daughter Danyel. By the time I took the next picture the wolves has been through the food and not a lot was left. I can assure you it was a feast of grand proportions! I'm sure I need not eat again for 4 days.
In closing this blog I wish all of you a wonderful labor day with lots of family fun and love for all.
