{ Home again... }

{chairpad above is in private collection~ hooked by me in 2006}

Hi Folks!

well I'm home from my marathon weekend of travelling up to CT for Jo's memorial...
it was really nice
(if you can say that)...
I re-connected with some long-lost family members and friends,
and there was a wonderful show of support by all those that came to celebrate Jo's life...

Hannah & I left early friday morning, got in to CT about 6:00 that eve.
went to the service at 11:30 saturday morn,
and that ended at 3:00...
we left for the drive home sunday morn about 8:30
and returned home last night about 6:00.

{almost 18 hrs of driving in a 48 hr. period}

I'm pooped, but happy to be home.

I did find about 4 skirts, and have washed them up
and now will over dye them tomorrow ...not sure what colors yet, but I'm leaning towards a nice mustard, then a pine green...then we'll see what I end up with!

That's the fun of the dye-pot!!!


I'll be taking pictures of the farmhouse & shop decorated for Christmas,
so I should have them up on here and on my PT soon....

I've been virtually visiting all of your homes out there in blogland...
I wished we all lived in the same neighborhood!!! what a cookie exchange THAt would be!!!

Well friends, I'm heading back into the house...I'm working on a chairpad for ebay.
Stay warm, Stay happy & Blessed be!
