Rughooking Day!

Today was our monthly rughooking get-together at Country Collections, but Ginger, Sandra and I didn't show up until 3pm.  We went on an adventure to Pink, OK to Victorian Roses Trading Post.

The day started out at Auntie Mae's antique store where Ginger and I have a

I picked up Sandra and headed to Purcell. We stocked our booth with more stuff

and then headed to lunch at Bravo's Mexican Grille in Purcell.  Ginger and I had planned on going to Pink, OK on Saturday, but since Sandra was with us, the decision was made to check it out before going to rughooking.

After driving about 20 minutes east we arrived at our destination.

We all jumped out of the car and just stood in awe of the outside.

So much to look at and when we went inside we were like kids in a candy store. So many neat things to look at.  I bought two shelves for our antique booth, an old brown bottle and an old wooden box. Of course, we went in my car(Honda Accord)so going back in a bigger vehicle on Saturday to get the shelves.  Who knows, may come home with even more.

We got to rughooking and told the ladies about our road trip. I did get some loops pulled on a rug I have been working on way too long. I hope to finish it in the next few weeks.

Jean binding her rug and Sandra watching. Sandra usually doesn't get any loops pulled on her rug during the hook-in for all her walking around and visiting.

Kay always brings finished rugs to the hook-in
And of course, the post wouldn't be complete without some pics of Emma. I took this last week.  She is enjoying the book Jo Leland gave her.  She is 4 months old now and getting more active. She keeps me busy when she comes to visit.
Well that was my day. I had a great time with good friends and we did a lot of laughing, which is good for our souls. Looking forward to another day of road trips and fun.

Have a great rest of the week and keep smiling.

November already, where has the year gone!!!

Well it is the 3rd of November and before you know it Thanksgiving will be here. I just love this time of the year. The fall weather here in Oklahoma has been perfect. The leaves are starting to turn and the evenings are getting cooler.

I still haven't done any rughooking. I did finish two wool applique mats for the new venture I am doing with my friend,  Ginger. We are renting space in Auntie Mae's Antiques, one of the antique malls in Purcell, OK. We spent Tuesday setting up our display, arranging and rearranging our "stuff". I forgot my camera but Ginger took some pictures. We still have some more things to do to it, but it is looking great so far.
I didn't get any Halloween pics posted this past weekend of Emma so here are some taken on Saturday. Ashlee had a frufru pumpkin costume made for Emma and had a friend's Mom meet her at the park on Saturday to take pics. Emma did OK for a little while but I think the costume was too much for her.  So enjoy! Next year she will be walking and enjoying trick or treat time, I'm sure.
I took this today(Wednesday)Think she still didn't care for the costume
These were taken on Saturday at the park

Emma was fascinated with the pumpkins
Trying a recipe I found online to cook chicken and dumplings in the slow cooker. Guess it's about time to check and see if they came out OK. Well let you know the verdict.
Have a great rest of the week and hope your weather has been as good as it has been here in Oklahoma.
