THE WINNER IS....................STICKHORSECOWGIRLS.
Hmm.....seems this blog is TWO people, so I don't know how they will figure that out, but I am
sure they will.
All I need is an address, and I will send out your garland.  Yay.  Congrats!!!
I would love to see a photo of the garland in its new home.



Today was the last day of the Christmas in the Country Tour......and I must say I am amazed at how profitable it was.  I didn't expect it to be.  No snow, and a lousy economy.  But I was wrong, and I am happy to admit it.
I got through it with my headache, and I am not sure how.  Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, for the first time in weeks, my headache receded to a 4-5.  That may sound awful, but truly, it is once again, all in the perspective.  It was DOABLE.  Do you know how sweet doable can be????
Trust me.  Sweet.
Then yesterday, about half way through the day, it changed, from a 4, to a full 10. OUCH.
OUCH.  OUCH.  What else can I say?
It just started to let up,  after 30 hours.
I can't wait to see the neurosurgeon this week.  Did I just say that?
Who is anxious to see a NEUROSURGEON?

I'll tell ya who.......someone who has had a headache 24/7 for SIX weeks.  That's who.

Sold this 4'x6' rug today, to a lady who lives just down the road from the studio.


I can't tell you how much that means, to have regular customers who live right in Kingsbury.  They have embraced Crazy as a Loom in a way that is encouraging and uplifting.

Getting ready for the Country Christmas gets the studio all clean and organized, and this time it has spurred me on in my attempts to 'open up' space.  The loom that was here is just visible off to the right, and SOON L and I will be moving it upstairs to the front bedroom.  This will allow me to leave this display up, if I want to, or if not, it might be a good place for a small table.  But at any rate, the room will not look so crowded, and it feels 'just right'.


Sunday is usually the quietest day of the tour, and since I was alone today, I had occasional spots of solitude.....which was nice.  As the afternoon sun casts long shadows on the porch, I began to tidy up, getting ready to go home.


I tried to make just the right amount of Greek honey cookies, not too many, not too few.   I came pretty close this time, but I do have some left over.
So.............what do you say????
One more giveaway, for a few luscious, divine Greek honey cookies????  It will keep me and L from eating them all.........and believe me, we don't need them.
So be a follower, leave a comment, and I will send you some cookies.......since we don't want to waste any time.....I will draw a number tomorrow night....Monday, Dec 5th.
I know you're gonna love 'em.

Hi Hilary
So glad the weekend is a success. Would love to have some Greek honey cookies. Am praying that the neurosurgeon will have an answer for you and/or it resolves on it's own. Love my rugs and hope this weekend made up for the other show. Blessings to you, L and the kitties. Mary
