"Wonderful Weekend"

Well, what a SUPER Weekend at our "Hooking Retreat"!!! I enjoyed each and every minute of it. All the "Hookers" were wonderful and treated me as if they knew me forever...why did I worry so much???? I might have known if a group of us got together, there would not be a dull moment. Our organizer, Paula, did a great job and arrangements have been made for the same time next year. Wild Horses won't keep me away.

I learned lots....how to whip stitch and bind, three new techniques, plus sculpturing....I have to admit I will have to practice, but THAT I will. We also got a lesson on "labels, etc."....

The comraderie was great and so was the food and accommodations. We had live entertainement....great music and jokes in between.

I needed this little break. Now it is back to the grind with packing wood for the winter, harvesting the veggies and ooddles of other chores. I will try and sneak a bit of hooking in between (I don't know when that will be).

I have a surprise to announce to you but that will be tomorrow, if I am not tooooo tired after the back-breaking job of digging potatoes....


  1. Sounds like you had a load of fun and made new friends into the bargain.

  2. Judging by all those smiling faces I'd say you had a wonderful time! Can't wait to hear your surprise! Take it easy digging those spuds....
