Oops.....A lil' boy decided to show his Mom a dance on top of his lego table and took a spill and broke his arm. After a 2nd look at the x-rays looks like a tiny fracture between the elbow and shoulder and he will be wearing a sling for 3 more weeks. Hasn't slowed him down a bit and decided I should give him a ride up on my shoulders.
Danny's Mom watches the great~grandkids often and it really helps when I have to work. I gave her a quilt kit and she had it done in 2 days. It turned out very nice!
I've been putting some finishing details on the workshop we will be having here next and I'll be sure to share lots of photo's of all the fun. Plus I'm hoping to catch up on all my blog reading in the next couple of weeks it's always a pleasure to see what everyone else has been doing!

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year and today Sloan and I went once again back to the OKC zoo. Next year I will have to get a year pass. He loved feeding the birds nectar. He said he would love to work at the zoo and feed all the animals but would not want to stay once it got dark.
It was perfect weather today and we had a wonderful time.
I have slowly been pulling out things to put out in the gathering room. It's nice to have a place to put things out.
I also hung the House Blessings rug that was designed by LJ Fibers.
It's nice to see a setting sun you know another day is just about done. Tomorrow is suppose to bring temps into the 60's and rain. Oh to turn off the AC and enjoy open windows once again.
Pati Jane and I went last weekend to Warsaw, MO to the Truman Lake Rug show and it was spectacular. Patty and the girls from Saltbox Primitive Woolens put on one outstanding show and the vendors were awesome. I know it will be on the list to do again next year!
Here are a few of the rugs that were on display.

The Loose Caboose Festival was one of the best this year. We were busy almost all day and the crowd was steady all day long.
I think there were around 60 booths with lots of different offerings.
Pati Jane and Sandra having a good time. Pati made some great smelling fall potpourri and it sure brought the customers in to our booth. Sandra is a big help all throughout the day and we are so glad she made the trip!
Danny was set up right beside us and let us set with him in his booth so we could use our whole booth to spread out.
Well this ol' farmgirl is worn out but had a great time. Hope you are enjoying your weekend and finding time to be with friends and family.

Whipping rugs and mats but the pile is dwindling and I'm loving the results. This is one of my favorites and it is designed by Laurie of LJ Fibers. Now to find a place to hang it to enjoy all the beautiful wools that went into this piece.
Next is an oxford punch piece made from #6 wool strips...just a bit hickety ~ pickety but much to my liking.
Found this lil' tree buried in a pile from long ago but it's finished and ready to enjoy.
This lil' snowguy is also oxford punched with wool strips and it is about coaster size.
Well I'm packed up and ready to go enjoy Saturday with Pati Jane and Sandra at the Loose Caboose Festival tomorrow. It's going to be another hot day but hopefully we have picked a spot that will be in the shade a good part of the day!
Wishing each of you a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.
