I got up that Saturday morning and jogged across the Boonslick Bridge which
crosses the Missouri River….
I think it was 32 degrees and the bridge is 1/2 mile….I jogged
the 1/2 mile over and then on down to a building, so probably just 3/4 of
a mile…..oh, my hands were SO COLD! I walked the rest of the way back.
I run at the gym, but I forgot that my asthma kind of kicks in when I run in
cold weather. Regardless, it was a beautiful start to my morning, watching
the sun come up over the Missouri River.
I considered this my penance for all of the drinking I did the night before.
I’m not saying that I consider exercise to be punishment, but rather a reminder of
how much better I feel when I live a little cleaner
Plus, there is nothing like getting your day started on a good note.
I came back, got ready to go to the hook-in, scarfed down a pretty big breakfast…
yogurt, banana, milk, coffee, hard-boiled egg, more coffee and headed to the hook-in.
OMG! There were SO MANY people there! It’s what my grandpa would have called
“elbow to a**hole”
I mean, if you look at the pictures, there is not much
room to walk between tables, there are soooo many hookers…..
wishing I could have body surfed above the crowd!
And then I saw it……
Hand-spun yarns and dyed fleeces…..OH MY!
Now, I must say, I haven’t spent hardly any money on
anything rug hooking related since last spring when I went to the hook-in
while I was in Florida…..well, I needed to make up for lost time!
I bought some fleece and some hand-spun yarns….what am I going to do with
them? Not sure, but they will certainly inspire me for future projects.
I also saw this adorable turkey…..
Well, I had to have the pattern for THAT! I love, Love, LOVE
And look at all these other 3-D patterns….
These 3-D patterns are from Prairie Road Designs.
Now, I must admit, that I don’t have tons of pics from the hook-in,
but I was able to get pictures of the rugs that were being worked on around me.
Finally, here are a few pictures of finished rugs that I was
able to get pics of…..so beautiful!
Thanks for hanging in there with me and waiting for the hooking pictures!
This was truly one of the most fun hook-ins I’ve ever attended!
Also, just an update…..Sunshine has been adopted!
