Little Auna and her First 3 weeks...

I got spend the day with Auna Grace yesterday so I snapped a few pictures of her.
Had to get one of her and me together.It is hard to take a picture of your self.
Is this not the cutest thing you ever seen.Her Mommy had to use a tiny paint brush.

Big brother is very proud of his new sister.
He call his "baby girl".
I love my two grandbabies so much and I am so lucky to live so close to them.

Last Day of Camp and Things got a Little Wild....

Not only was the weekend the Eureka springs Rug Hooking Camp but it was "Yards & Yards& Yards of Yards Sales" in Eureka Springs.This little red shopping cart was one of the things Anita will be taking home with her.Here Jody and Anita are having fun with it.

If you had been here when Anita unloaded her SUV you would ask " How we she ever get it Home?" Well, all you need is 12 hookers in a room with all that beautiful wool and room is made.I will never tell how much new wool I am bringing home.
Here is a little something I made for lunch today.Now even a smell of it left.So sad!
Hookers at work.
Wool is not just for hooking.Anita got cool today and she wore this piece around all day.
A little demo on how to edge a rug.

I will post pictures of everyone's rug tomorrow.Tonight I am going to bed.

Weekend at a Fiber Show........

Adam and I spent the weekend at the "Fiber Christmas in July" show in Kellyville, Oklahoma.I've petted so much wool in all my life.We meet some new fiber people and had a great time.
Here is some of the things I had for sale and I can say that every dime I sold, I spent and maybe a bit more.hehe...

I wish I would have taken more pics of the whole room.
There was a lot of spinning and knitting going on.There was also classes all day long.
This was sheep-themed fused glass by "Paws & Reflect"
This little guy came home with me.It will go live with Auna Grace.
Pattern for this and many more very cute animals can be found at

Thanks very much to Dana and Steve for hosting Adam and I for the night. We had a great time.
