Hooking in progress....


I have had so little time for myself lately, but last weekend we went to visit my family-- so I had a bit of time in the car to play. I am really enjoying rug hooking. This is a small panel -- the hoop is a 10" hoop. The hooking class that I took was less than spectacular. I'd like to take another some day..... (This is the traditional east coast technique -- not latch hooking)

I have so many things due/happening in June, so you are not likely to hear from me much. I have some art to finish for next weekend that may not get finished...... I have to finish all of my report cards (37) and also have to finish a research paper by June 1. I am still taking evening classes -- and have the last of my weekend classes tomorrow.

Ah life as a teacher Martha- I can relate - I only have 24 report cards but we have been renovating our school this year and we get to move back to our renovated classrooms the week of June 8.... Such is the excitement of working with young children , moving and report cards-- July 1 will be a red letter day..
Hope you find time to stop and breathe during June... VBS
Regards,
Anna
