It's been a long time!

I can't believe I haven't posted anything here since 2009!  WOW -- am I behind or what.  Lots has happened in the last 6 years -- too much to mention.  I think it would be best to just start from here and go forward.

We are stuck in Clarksville, TN going home from a hook-in in Punta Gorda, FL.  Huge ice storm named Titan put us in a brand new Hampton Inn.  Tomorrow we should be able to get home.

My biggest and best news is I became a grandma on February 19.  Every morning I get a new "Good Morning Grandma" photo.  What a great way to start the day.  I'll post some pictures of Riley soon.

I promise to do better about posting events.  You'll hear from me before another 6 years goes by -- I promise!

Wooly Women

While at the Fredericksburg, TX hook-in, some of the ladies made a snippet box. I call them the "Wooly Women". Hope they all had a great time making their little treasures. We'll see them again next year.

My Chauffeur

This is Pat, my personal chauffeur. He drove all the way to Fredericksburg, TX and back home just so I could hook. Pretty good guy. He's certainly a keeper!

Sauder Village Day 1

End of day one and what a day it was! We met so many nice ladies from all over the U.S. and Canada. I stopped to take a couple pictures of some of the flowers planted here just because they are so pretty. I thought you might enjoy them. I posted a few more of the rugs in the show here. Isn't the "Giant Baby" rug something! I just love it.

Stella Blue

We took the advice of some fellow hookers and had dinner at a wonderful restaurant in downtown Archbold -- Stella Blue. We're planning to go back on Thursday evening for ribs and jazz. Wonderful food and service and white cake with red raspberrry filling YUM!

Sauder Village

We are in Archbold, OH at Sauder Village. What an incredible place! For those of you who have never visited, you certainly should try. I will try to post every day we are here and share some of the rugs and photos of some of the people here and our booth. I always gravitate to the dog rugs and I've posted some here. They are incredible to see. Also, I've included a photo of the three new snowmen -- We are Family.
