Do you ever have those days when you just feel like being
a home body?
I’m having one of those “moments” tonight.
I’m supposed to be getting ready to go to my power yoga class,
(and yes, I can do this pose!)
but I’m just not feeling it.
It’s warm and balmy out, yet I just feel like snuggling into my
home this evening.
We had a big storm move through last night with bright
lightening and really loud, window shaking thunder….
I think being up for about an hour with Lonnie
(storm fraidy cat) in the middle of the night made me
a little bit tired as well. Thankfully, Buzzbee is not scared
of storms and slept like a stone! Perhaps Lonnie will learn
a thing or two from him about being more calm when
it storms….we’ll see.
It actually stormed for several hours, so I really shouldn’t
complain about his one hour of nervousness….he is so
much better than he used to be…..looky HERE.
Speaking of looking……I took a few pictures from the
Baa Baa Booneville hook-in that I went to this weekend
with blogless Sandy.
I didn’t get many pictures, but here are two of my favorite things
that I saw……
This marvelous crazy quilt pillow by The Wooly Loft
I tried to take pictures from a few different angles,
so you could see all the different techniques used on it.
Loads of wool boas (for lack of a better term)!
I bought a green one last year and used part of it
in my “Cleopatra’s Car Ride” pillow….
Look at this whopper! I was sending pictures to
a friend who wanted one, but this one was huge and
heavy…..$356…..however, theatrical and gorgeous!
They also had smaller pieces as well….
The feather boas are from Ozark Handspun
and they have gorgeous yarns as well!
I bought the pattern for the stuffed turkey below
last year, but haven’t hooked it yet…..I know, I know…
Thanksgiving is right around the corner!
The turkey pattern comes from Prairie Road Designs
and she has even more cute stuffed patterns…..her
dog and reindeer are adorable as well!
There were so many wonderful vendors and their displays
were awesome! I swear, I haven’t purchased any wool
in about 3 years…..yes, 3 years….can you believe that?!
Well, Judy, at Rustic Rugs had a few pieces that made me
cave…..one I’m using in a new rug I’m working on and the others
were purchased just to make me smile!
(pictures later on, if I can remember…..yes, they have
pink in them!)
If I were a “stitcher” I would have definitely bought a few patterns
from Primitive Stitches….so darn pretty they make me
want to stitch, but then I know my limits….maybe one day!
I mean, look at this…..
Okay, I’m going to go tuck in and get snuggled in
my spot for the night and perhaps work on my new rug.
