Memorial Day A Day To Remember

Memorial Day a time to reflect on the sacrifices and the continuing services of today's men and women in the armed forces. May we be ever thankful for those who sought bravely to keep this country free and safe and may never take for granted the ultimate price so many have paid.

May each of you have a joyous Memorial day and be sure to take a moment and reflect on those who are still endeavoring to fight for the freedom we enjoy today!

Star of Texas Rug Camp A Few More Rugs!

Thought I would share with you a few more of the rugs from Star of Texas Rug Camp and the throw down. Enjoy....

Sally came all the way from Canada to attend camp. She set next to me and was in Kris Miller's class. I sure enjoyed visiting with her.

Now for the throw down....some of the rugs being worked on during the camp.

Making Hay While The Sun Shines

Got me a new hat this old one had seen better days.

Too hot for boots so might as well work on my tan :) the flip flops didn't last too long before I traded them in for tennis shoes.

Danny had the tractor with the radio, AC, and the cab....hmmmm!!!! I had the one with the sunshine, bugs, and fresh air!

Those rows seem to be getting longer and longer.

Here I am trying my best to keep the rows straight...not an easy task when your getting very sleepy!

There goes Danny again....probably sipping tea, singing a song, and hoping he doesn't have more problems with the baler!

Farm living is the life for me. Land spreading out, so far and wide. Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

More Hooked Rugs from Star Of Texas Camp

There were so many wonderful rugs at the Star of Texas Camp....just had to show you a few more. There are so many more still to be seen and then the "throw down" day of what everyone at camp was working on. Just so much inspiration.

Just a Taste of Camp!

Pati and I loaded up her car on Sunday May 23rd and headed to Tyler, Texas for our very first rug hooking camp "Star of Texas" and wow was it ever fun. We had Maria Barton of Star Rug company for our teacher and we learned so much and had a grand time laughing and getting to know one another.

It took 3 times unloading the car to get it all in! Pati and I learned through all of this that maybe we didn't need to bring quite as much so next time we will be packing just a little lighter. It was neat to see how all the seasoned hookers had brought all of their supplies.

We then met with our dear friend Jo and enjoyed going out for some yummy Mexican food. Then the rest of the evening was getting to know each other and working on whatever you wanted.

I'll let you enjoy the pictures below. I have lots more I'll be posting in the next few days. We enjoyed a rug show on Wednesday....hope you enjoy it, too! Some of the rugs I was able to get the name of who hooked it and who the design was by.
