It certainly has been an interesting summer around here. Little did I know that moving the studio/shop back home was just the beginning of the chaos. Then in the final hours the website was saved, when another host service bought the host company I’ve been with for 9 years. There have been a few glitches and I’m still working on building a new site, but for the most part the ole’ site is working and I’ll be adding new product as time permits!

So you say...”What NOW???” Last week, my husband accepted a promotion that will have us relocating to the Milwaukee area. I’m thrilled for him...but this is a major life change for our son and me. Nick starts 9th grade a week from Monday...I’ve lived in the area all my life...this house for 17 years. I’m trying to keep my sense of humor...or risk crumbling into pieces! The good news is I can run The Wooly Red Rug from anywhere! We are looking for a home in Cedarburg, WI, which is an old woolen mill town with a huge arts community. The thought of having like minded souls around is a big comfort...and the Winery sounds inviting, too! ~L

In the final hours...

...the website has been saved! The hosting service was sold and the new owner is keeping everything in place...Amen. I still will working on a new site...but not in a frenzy. I may switch everything over at some point...or just keep it for selling my finished work.
Thanks for all your kind comments, well wishes and prayers!!!

The NEW Maggie Bonanomi books arrived...Comfort Zone..what a fitting title!
I'll be getting them listed on the (old) site tonite...then
back to hooking and a sigh of relief...enjoy your weekend! ~L

Another BUMP in the road...

Just when I thought things were settling down...finding there place...another BUMP!
I received an email this morning that my website server is permanently shutting down on Friday, August 6th. What can I say...I'm stunned...and scrambling to get a new site up and running! In the meantime...please know that you can contact me via email with questions or to place and order!
This too shall pass!?!?!

Getting back to business...

I hate being behind...but once again...I am.
The studio/shop move behind me...I've abandoned the remaining piles of miscellaneous clutter...tho' ignoring them is really difficult for me! This week I'm catching up on orders and most importantly finishing up on Part 3 of House Blessing, the 2010 Project Rug. For all you very dear, patient participants...the kits should be ready and in the mail next week!

Thanks to everyone for your encouragement, well wishes and kind comments during these stress filled past 2 months...I'm so happy to have everything under one roof and look forward to welcoming you if you are in the neighborhood! ~L
