Dear Blog Readers:
If you have a hobby that I’m not interested in today, please do not tell me about it. Vince said . . seriously . . PLEASE! 🙂
There are so many rabbit holes that keep sucking me down. The rabbit hole I fell into today is called “rug hooking”.
It started like any other day . . except it was raining in central Texas. That was pretty weird. At some point this morning I began reading my email and there was an email from a long time blog reader. She was talking about one of my bog posts and then she said “I recently passed through Brady (which is very close to me) on my way to the Texas Rug Camp and I thought about you!”
I wrote her back and said . . tell me about rug camp. We’ve exchanged emails all day . . lots of emails. She lives a good ways from me but she was perfectly willing to throw everything in the car, drive to Brownwood and teach me how to hook and strip! Whew . . we might have started this little hobby when I was younger and skinny! 🙂
Yes, I want to learn so we decided that in the spring we would get together. I thought it would be easier to meet halfway between us so I wouldn’t be here having to cook and tend to a biting, barking dog (Speck). We talked about why we should wait til spring but then we kept talking and . . maybe December, before Christmas, and then . . well, maybe after the first week in November. Now, we’re planning to meet next week!
We had friends over this evening and they thought it was hilarious that I was going to start another hobby. Vince isn’t thinking it’s so funny, especially when I told him how much it costs for the Beeline cutter, which I will surely need!
So, before I’m able to be spinning yarn, I may be hooking rugs!
