|"The Flying Gardener", a JuJu Vail design. Been hooking on this rug for more than a year; it was WAY out of the box for me because I usually choose more muted colors ... Plus, it's pretty big, too!|
The Holy Hookers had their first meeting at Select Insurance in the conference room and we had a great time. I think it'll work! There were 5 of us I think. We think more could easily fit in and even spill out into the front room and/or hallway! It was fun. And good to catch up on what's going on with Jane & Deb! However, the daytime group -- not so much. I was the only one to show up at the library in September and yesterday it was just Margo and I. So I'll give the daytime group till the end of the year then probably pull the plug. It was a good idea but ... Hey, I really do enjoy the time away from distractions here at home, where I can just sit and hook and get a lot done!
We had a good visit to Michigan to visit Ray, Gloria and Veronica. We watched a soccer game (and they won). W. & I are impressed with the improvement in play that just one season makes. The team is doing well. Ray took us to a nice brew pub in Hastings for my birthday lunch while we were there. (Oh yes, I did have another one on the 7th ...) I've gotta say, Gloria is a most excellent cook! We had two amazing dinners at their house! (And I'm not just kissing up.) On the way there we stopped in Kalamazoo and I got an 8-dent reed for my loom so I can change the look somewhat on my next run. The trees were changing up there and it was a beautiful drive home. We took a detour through Bluffton and visited with Mom for a while, getting home LATE Sunday night. She is doing really well and was in good spirits. Here's a pix from the soccer game.

Have a blessed weekend!
