It's Official I'm A Parttime Hooker






Last week was not fun. Both my kids were really sick with a virus and I kept trying to get it. I was just exhausted all week. My son only went to school 1/2 day all week. I hope that is it for the year!
The half day he actually went I got to learn the technique of hookin. My mom is so proud! I called to tell her I am hookin now and she said, Your granny did that too. It is nice to know it runs in the family. I am getting to learn rug hooking which is something I have always wanted to learn. I looked into it a couple years ago and there is nothing around here. It is all up north. So I just dropped it. Then Chris in my quilt group told us about this lady at her church that taught it. I am like , I want to do that. So Chris asked her and she said yes. There is a group and they meet every other sunday afternoon at her house. So yesterday I got to go. It was so much fun. I am starting my flower piece, purple of course. I am going to my first all day workshop next saturday. I have a feeling wool is going to be just as addicting as fabric. It is beautiful.
This is a picture of her house all the way out in the woods (such a great place to meet) and a few of her pieces she has done. She has only been doing this since 2004 and has gotten so many pieces finished. When I saw all of her pieces I thought she had been doing this 20 years or so!
I have finished about 9 of my Dear Jane blocks. I have never made so many mistakes. I think it is because I was doing them when I was tired and not feeling great. I hope that is it. If I keep making mistakes I will not enjoy this as much as I thought I would. Especially making 2 of them.
