There was also birthday cake compliments of Pam and Heather. There were candles and quite the blaze. Heather and Pam supplied the cake and candles and we butchered the Happy Birthday song. Don't hit me, I'm just sayin' we shouldn't quit our day jobs. Shelley did a fab job blowing out the fire....it's amazing how much of a blaze 39 candles can make. One could have lost an eyebrow! Pam brought a homemade Pinot Grigio to wash it all down. What a fun group of women. My studio is a place to congregate, a place where everyone knows your name. A home away from home; where you can let your hair down and share the passion of rug hooking.
Ginny brought her rug "Alice" in and I took an updated picture. Wow…this rug is a stunner. I'll post an update in another next blog.
Sue is funny. She is finishing off a Deanne Fitzpatrick piece and I asked her when she started it and she takes off her glasses and says, “What’s today Wednesday?....I started it Sunday”. Do the math…that's only four days and she’s almost finished! She hooks like there’s a motor under her frame. I’m fast but I think she'd leave me in her wake. That's the joy of retirement, being able to do all the fun stuff whenever you want. I’m just too pooped at the end of the day so most of my hooking is done in my head….it’s called daydreams, fantasies, pipe dreams, castles in the sky or good intentions.
