I guess maybe you can trust a smiling goat. “I told you I would take care of everything”, said Daisy.
The retreat was fabulous, I had a great time. They do such a wonderful job of feeding you and making you comfortable at Camp Camby it is hard to leave. I mean who doesn’t love not having to cook or clean? Angela was a wonderful hostess, she and her sisters are so warm and welcoming everyone instantly felt at ease. It was great to meet so many blogging friends. I even have a new BFF, she’s only five but we didn’t let the age difference bother us. I am glad Milah talked me into going a year ago.
It might have been quiet here on the homestead over the weekend but it was a wild and wooly weekend for me. I’m now a hooker! We visited a beautiful rug hooking shop owned by Bev Stewart in Clayton, Indiana. I made this mug rug, which I think looks a lot like Dorothy. When I called home and told the engineer I was learning to be a hooker he calmly replied, “I sure hope we’re talking about rugs, otherwise Milah has some ‘splaining to do.”
It was technically a quilting retreat but I never even touched a quilt. I didn’t tackle the costume project either. I did a lot of knitting. I also worked on a few wool appliqué projects. I stuffed this pincushion with some of the 500 lbs of wool I have in the barn. I figure 40,000 more of these and I’ll start to make a dent in it.
I also finished this wall hanging, now I just need to frame it.
While I was working on it Milah reminded me that I never showed you the finished product of the wool quilt I was working on. I’ve had it done, framed and hanging in the family room since spring.
Can’t wait to go back and do it all again next year! Now back to reality… the toilets need scrubbing.
