Friends, Fun, and Treasures!

We had a wonderful time while visiting in Kansas and Missouri. Our first stop was at Betty's home and you couldn't have asked for a more warm welcome from such a dear friend and her family. Warm glazed pear muffins and pumpkin spice bread was served with iced tea. It was delicious.
Betty gave each of us a book she had covered with wool and each one was different.
It's an absolute treasure that is just priceless in my book! Love every detail of it. Thanks so much Betty!

Then Robin (Betty's sil) gave each of us a needle punched lil' box. She does such beautiful work. Another treasure that had me grinning from ear to ear. Thank you Robin.
Robin also gave me a beaded needle threader for my punch needle, a veggie dip mix, earrings, and a awesome smelling candle.
Betty also had a package for Sloan to open that she sent with me. He just loved the scooby doo shirt and coloring book.
Inside the package was also a new plate, cup, and bowl with How to Train a Dragon and of course he had to use them for breakfast and lunch today. Thank you Betty and Trinity....Sloan just loved it all.
Okay, I have tons of treasures to share. We not only went to the hook in but hit a couple of antique shops and an awesome shop called American Whatever.
First though I must say I just loved visiting with all the gals in the top picture. It was so good to finally meet Chelle. She has recently joined the eBay group I'm on AAPG and we had such fun getting to know one another.
Betty took time to show Pati how to cross stitch on linen and gave her some helpful hints.
Here is some of the treasures I came home with. Lots of wool, patterns, wool yarn, and a cookbook.
I'll share some of the great rugs that were at the hook-in tomorrow. It was such a fun trip and I enjoyed every minute of it with some really wonderful friends.
