News from my Crazy Life!!!

I guess one good thing about this cold snowy Spring is I'm getting some new patterns put together! This Hooked Pineapple Bag Pattern will be listed in my Etsy shop and on PatternMart later today!  It's almost ready to go!  The little wool appliqued pouch is already up and running on Etsy and PatternMart !  My fingers are a stitching these bags and pockets for my upcoming show inventory!
And now for some exciting news that I just can't keep to myself any longer!!!!! Did you ever hear of the magazine called "The Wool Street Journal"?!?!?   If not, you must check it out because the next issue is going to be very special to me and some of my inspiring friends Robin over at Bird In The Hand Primitives, Kathy from Rugs of Mine In Time and Linda owner of the Grant Street Woolworks!  I'm thinking it comes out sometime in the middle of June! You will have the opportunity to learn a bit more about our love of rug hooking and working with wool!  
Also, I'm so excited for my very first hooking retreat!!! It is the end of April hosted by Woolen Willows! Life doesn't get any better than this!  It will be a great opportunity to relax with a great bunch of ladies and meet some new friends!
Lunch break is over so I'm back to work! Have a relaxing and wonderful Easter with your family and friends!

My favorite Cupboard

The woodshop will be opening up real soon! A little late this year and I'm very anxious to get started.  This cupboard was left over from last years shows and I'm not giving it up!!! It has found a new home in my kitchen!  This is the only way I get new things for my home anymore! Have a bunch of my pottery and some canned tomatoes in there! Jeff's makes these doors by removing the glass from old windows and replacing it with old screen.
