Did I hear you say something about a

hooking retreat?

The Canyon Inn is going to be a great place
for a week of rug hooking and relaxing.

I just found this wonder etsy site

I love the jewelry. So clean and artistly (is that a word?)

I just wanted to share it with all of you!

I love to find other artist outside of textiles that I can relate to! And there are a few pieces on her site calling my name!
I will be following this blog for sure!

I ran off last Thursday to my favorite yarn shop, Stitches and Scones and did I do good or what. This sweater I've been wanting to start so with the help of Gina. the good worker bee, I got this wonder purple tweed yarn. And look at the fun buttons to go on it! Now I just have to get brave and cast on!
Of course I couldn't stop at one project and I came home with this pattern and yarn to make a nice light weight summer sweater. Now I just need to jump in and start. But only start one at a time! These two ball of yarn were a complete tangled mess. How they got like that I have NO idea! But the other day while I was sewing up a pillow for my friend Cheryl she noticed the mess. While she kept me company she worked on untangling it. And then she insisted on taking it home to work on. Guess what she did it. Now I will have to find a nice pattern so I can knit it into something! It really is yummy stuff.
It is to be in the 70's here tomorrow! WOW it is only March 17th. Makes me want to get outside and work on the flowers. But have to remind myself it is still a LONG time until warm weather is here to stay!

These two cats never get this close.
I walked in the spare room and found them like this.
The stuffed cat made from an old coverlet is Bee's best friend.
She is usually snuggled next to it.
And since it is not real she is the boss with it.
Bee knowing she is getting attention looks at me so innocent.....
Bee is the princess for sure. Her beautiful Bengal markings showing quite well here.

But finding Little Bit curled up so close to Bee's 'friend'
and Bee content to stay on the pillows is a strange site.
Think they are both just getting old.
Guess we are all waiting on spring! It has been cold here the last few days. After 70's this past weekend I'm ready for warm weather.
I've noticed flowers are starting to poke up and the green is really nice to see!
My pussy willows are in full bloom braving the cold.

Camp invites are about ready to go in the mail.
It seems like there is lots of excitement about the new location!
It was more that time for a new location!
The Canyon Inn will be the new hooking hot spot for sure!
Keep watching for all updates!

This is a picture of the Inn.

For the past 13 years it has been at the restored

Due to several issues it was time for a change.
