Great to be home after a fun filled week in the great state of Iowa. Met up with some old friends and made many new. I hooked snow and gray scale fruit piece, a sheep with wool quilling, and propped up my swollen leg after the wear and tear of travel. Maddie, my niece, was my nurse and brought me fresh ice bags each evening. (Had arthroscopic surgery to clean out the arthritis a week prior to flying out) Going to have the other one done in May and i will be as good as new, I hope. Flying is not as fun as it used to be. We were stuck in Milwaukee of all places for 9 hours until we could get a flight to OH. Twas a long day, so grateful for home. Had a wonderful Easter celebrating our Savior's resurrection. Our parents were here along with sisters family. The only thing missing was our wild brother in Tampa. Grandpa still got the chocolate rabbit ears fromt the kid's baskets as he has since we were little. As kids we used to make a fuss but now the grandkids just hand over the rabbit for his biting fancy and deal with it.
Stacking up hooking projects to complete during knee recovery while my sister is busy in her flooded gardens.
Attended Punderson Rug Camp the first week of April and studied under Sybil Osika, not my first adventure with her and not my last. She drew a giraffe for me and a flower garden that I am still working on. Great camp and teachers, Cynthia Norwood runs the camp and already has the line up for next year so check it out.
Don't forget the Kingwood Center-North Central Ohio Rug Show and Hook in, Mansfield, OH on June 18. It starts at 10am sharp. A fun filled day with vendors Heavens to Betsy, Wool Yankers, Crows on a Ledge, The Village Rim Yarns. Larry Ault plans to attend to show off his new cutter. Contact me if you would like more info. The show and hook in are free but there is a charge of $5/carload at the gate.
