It's been a busy last few days for me! I did a lesson on fondue making at the Braysville Extension Homemakers Club meeting in Spencer last Tuesday night. So fun! That was a great group of women (and one man). They were interested and interesting. They had some good questions, too. It was a good night. Then Wednesday I was co-hostess of my extension homemakers club, which means I had to prepare the main course for 20 people; made sloppy Joe sandwiches, oriental coleslaw, and Barbara J.'s corn taco salad. My co-hostess did the desserts and drinks. Everything was well received and I was relieved when the evening was over (for obvious reasons -- see hint above). Thursday was a fun day with lunch at the diner in Worthington with some hookers followed by hooking at the library. Luckily Paul S. joined us and he is so fun to be around. I think laughing is good for you! Friday I went to Washington to the conservation club where our rug hooking guild set up for the 11th annual fiber arts fair. It was a long, tiring day. (I don't think I'm as young as I used to be ...) Then of course, Saturday was the fiber fair! Wow! It was a really good day; weather perfect, good-size crowd, interesting vendors, and great visitors. I demonstrated rug hooking with Marsha M. at a table where Jan Cabel was doing needlefelting and we had a lot of interested visitors most all of the day. I like talking about rug hooking and answering questions. It slowed way down at about 2 p.m. and we were packing up at 3. Guess what???? I WON THE RAFFLE RUG!
|I never win ANYTHING! Wow! (I think I was in shock!)|
Here's some other stuff that's been happening with us ...
|A friend from church brought us a big bag of pecans so I toasted some and made a from-scratch pecan pie. It was so good! I don't do pies very often ...|
|We were out yard-saleing on the Freedom-Arney Road last week and saw this very interesting truck/tractor for sale! I had to drag Wendell away ...|
So now you know what's been going on in my life.
If you want to see pictures from the fiber fair I mentioned above, I'm putting them on later tonight. The web address is www.hoosierhills.blogspot.com
Have a blessed week!
