Just had to post the kids first day of school pictures. I am not ready for school to start, this summer has went by way to fast. Just seems like they were getting out for the summer and we had a fun fill days ahead.
Caitlin 11th & Chase 5th
This is going to be a different year for Chase since he had to get reading glasses.
So far we are off to a great start. Chase has came in every evening done his homework with out me asking him to. HE LOVES his teachers.
I am sooo behind. When I checked my blog i couldn't believe it has been so long since i've blogged. The last time I blogged I had tried my hand at painting. I painted several other canvas paintings. I even purchased the needed supplies and my kids really enjoyed painting some of the Santa Snowmen. We entered them into our county fair and won ribbons on every one. Now I have discovered a new hobby. It's Rag Rug making. Caitlin, My friend & school co-hort Becky signed up for a Saturday afternoon workshop at Sister's and Friends Shop. I had never crocheted before but since I knew how to knit I didn't think this would be a problem. Well starting off proved to be a little more difficult than what I thought but once the center was formed I just took off (ok thanks to Becky who helped)

When we left the workshop we had about a 4" circle. I was so proud of Caitlin she was interested in learning how to make a rug.
It took a few weeks to complete but I did it. The finished product measured 31". Yes this will be seen in the County Fair next year. It will also be displayed in my new office.
I loved doing the Rag Rug so much I wanted to share with others. Since I work at the UK Extension I am able to do just that. The instructor agreed to come to the Carlisle Extension office and teach a class.

This is my favorite picture because Caitlin is showing her Aunt how to do it!
