Saturday Evening News

Well, the week is over and decided I should do a quick post. Busy rest of the week after returning home from the Jane Olson workshop. Ginger and I had a great time and learned a lot .
The local rughooking ladies entertained us on the last day with a song by Arlo Guthrie, "I just wanna ride on my motorcycle". Quite funny!
and here are our wonderful teachers.....Jane Olson (l) Diane Burdett(r)
We had a great time and hope to attend next year.

This morning my sister-in-law, Danna and I went to the quilt shop in Hennessey, OK for a fat quarter frenzy sale. All fat quarters were $1.44. Needless to say, I bought my share of fat quarters. Lots of fun though.

This afternoon I went to Country Collections in Moore, OK for our rughooking group. We meet on Saturday for those who cannot come on our regular Tuesday group. Kay has been on vacation so she came and showed us her wool quilt that she finished.
Sandra also finished her rughooking that she has been working on for awhile. I think it is a wonderful piece and Sandra did a great job on it.So now it is time to work on an online retreat with a group I belong to...first time I have done this. So guess I better get husband is out of town for the weekend, so I can stay up as long as I want....oh boy ((-:

Have a good Sunday and stay cool. Hoping for rain tomorrow.



  1. I sure enjoyed our road trip and the time we spent at CC on Saturday was wonderful as always....well this ol' gal is just about worn out so got to grab a bit of sleep! Have fun working on your pumpkins.

  2. Glad you & Ginger went to the Jane Olsen workshop and brought back lots of new and exciting ideas. May just have to try the braiding thing. Don't we just have the MOST fun at the hooking get togethers!!
    Thanks for the sweet comment on my Give Thanks rug...sure took me long enough to finish. Time to move on to a new rug now. (maybe something small and quick to do)
