Hooking today...

Today was Open Hooking/Stitching in the Studio...

Many of the regulars had other is often the case on a beautiful almost summer day.
It was GREAT to visit with those that came...and lots of progress was made on our projects while we chattered away!

I'm nearly finished with Shelley G's rug...I'm sure she will be glad to have it. I should go out and pull some weeds...after all the rain we had...they would easily come out...but I think I'll just keep pulling loops...feels good!

The Solstice is hours away...Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful Morning and Thank YOU's

Good Morning,
Thank you all for the congratulations on Nick's graduation and for my birthday wishes! It's been a wild week around here!!!
We just got back from visiting Iowa State University. It's official Nick is registered for Fall term in the College of Design!
Go Cyclones!
It's a beautiful campus...the trees are so lush and beautiful...and the Design building is awesome!
I would so like to spend my days in the textile studio...or painting studio...or pottery...
but I don't think he wants Mom to go to college with him...nor could we afford tuition x's 2;)

So, I'm back to work...sorting thru emails, desk clutter and finally getting caught up on orders! 2nd Saturday Open Hooking and Stitching is will be great to see everyone!

Hope you have a great weekend...and Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's!

Washburn Class of 2014
Last evening we celebrated...It was a wonderful ceremony!
So many of Nick's classmates have been together since kindergarten...some from pre-school...
It's amazing to see the vibrant young men and women they have become!

Grandpa & Grandma were able to be at the ceremony and I can't tell you how happy that made me...and Nick, too!
