I had a wonderful Christmas holiday with family. Nick was home for 3 weeks and we all had a great time together. He got to spend lots of time with his niece, Emma.
January arrived and tax season began. Ashlee (daughter) has been working with us for the last 3 years and has decided to go back to school to become a dietician. I told Jeffrey I could work in her place (what was I thinking, I am supposed to be retired) but really I don't mind. He is pretty good about letting me off when I want. I still go to rughooking once a month and even get to go thrift store shopping with Ginger and Sandra. Just not as much computer time as I used to have though to blog and talk with my ebay group.
February came and I went to Lenexa, KS for the Rock Creek Hook-in with Ginger and Sandra. We left on Thursday, Feb 24 and came back on Sunday. We stopped in Americus, KS to see Betty's new studio. It is awesome!!!! If I can find the pictures Sandra sent me I will post some. Betty did a great job painting and decorating. A nice cozy place to spend the day stitching and rughooking.
The hook-in was great. We saw JoJo and met Chelle, both members of AAPG(an ebay group I belong to). Lots of vendors and great wool and rughooking patterns to be had. I said I didn't need any more wool or patterns, but there were a few pieces of wool and patterns that called my name so I just had to buy them....(( - :

I share an antique booth space with Ginger and so my time for creating is usually late at night and on the weekends. After April 15, maybe things will slow down a little.
I keep Emma (granddaughter) during the week, too. She is 8 months old and has been crawling everywhere and already trying to walk. I told her she just needed to wait a couple more months for that milestone, but I don't think she is listening to me. She and I spend time at the office together while Ashlee is in school.

Happy St Patrick's Day!!!!
