I haven't been blogging as regularly lately .....I feel like I've been a little boring here .....

So what have I been up to that's kept me away from the blog?


I've been reading "The Success Principles" by Jack Canfield

A really great book with many inspirational stories and ideas that I'd like to put into motion....yes, it's one of those "positive thinking" books.....which I'm a big fan of.

I just have a few chapters left to go....

I've also been trying to decide if I want to take on the task of becoming part of the website. Simply Fibers is the physical location where I sell my hand-dyed wools and meet with my hooking group every week. I just need to decide if I want to take on this new "learning" opportunity......if I do I will be probably be adding things such as dyes, rug hooking patterns, hooks and backings.....maybe some wool, but I feel like I have a hard time just keeping enough stock at Simply Fibers, ebay and etsy.

I've also been spending a lot of time on organizing my hooking room and reorganizing some of my closets.....yeah I know blah, blah, blah......pretty UNexciting huh?


tomorrow I'm going to be headed with up to Lenexa, Kansas with some of the girls from my hooking group to the big HOOK-IN.....I promise to take lots of pictures and report back on the vendors, who I saw and hopefully have gobs and gobs of pictures of inspiration for all of us!!!

Oh yeah, for those of you who like stitchery this is a must have my opinion....I'm not much of a stitcher, but I loan it out a lot! It's a truly beautiful book! "Elegant Stitches".....ever wonder how to do a "snail trail stitch" or a "colonial knot"'s all in here!!!
That's it for now.
Go forth and be creative,


  1. Tammers, have a GREAT time at Lenexa!! I can't believe you have gotten as much done as you have!! All while getting ready to vend at the hook-in. Holy cow woman! And the kitchen remodel, and hooking that darling bright house below! Tooo cute! Cut yourself a little slack my dear - you have soo much going on, and some of it just isn't blogworthy! LOL! I have been dead in the water on my blog for a while now too. LOL
    Have a great time tomorrow!

  2. Hey Tammy...have fun at Lenexa and bring back lots of inspiration (like you need it {grin}). Actually, you do inspire me. I love reading your blog and seeing what all you do...running circles around everyone I know, for sure!
    Especially me, though of late I have been working on a few different projects. Have fun!
