May 2-7, 2015 Weekend; Cowgirl Boots, Moxi Junction, Craft Show, a Colorway Hat, Cinqo de Mayo, and my Nails

My dear friend Katherine ordered a pair of crocheted cowgirl boots. I ended up making two different sizes so her new granddaughter would have some while she is little and bigger for when she grows. I enjoyed seeing Katherine, since it had been a year since I saw her last. Thanks so much Katherine for thinking of me when you needed a pair of cowgirl boots. ;)

I love how each stair has a different encouraging word painted on it.

This was one of the many windows in the upstairs room. It was so sunny and bright and I think it might be perfect for a crochet retreat to be held in.

They even have checkers and other games for you to play while drinking your coffee, tea, or smoothie.

We sure did enjoy the smoothies. Megan got a mixed berry and I had strawberry. I would certainly recommend anyone in the area of 319 S. Park St. in Maize, Kansas definitely check Moxi Junction out. They also have pastries.

His table of jewelry was beautiful. His friend Gaye had her pieces of jewelry in it as well.

When I came home from work on Tuesday, my gardener was trying out his new weedeater. I was so glad that he got a new one, since his old one wouldn't hold a charge for more than 5 minutes.

I got my nails done. I wish you could see them in person, since they look so much more amazing in person.

I hope all of you had a great weekend and week and I would love to hear all about yours. I’m so glad that the weekend is here again. I am looking forward to teaching crochet-on-the-double at Creation Station in Newton on Saturday morning from 10:30-12:30. I think we have a few spaces left in the class and if you want to join me, please call Catherine to get signed up at (316) 772-0883. I hope everyone has a Happy Mother’s Day. I love you all!

  8. Your crochet is inspiring. Must make a few head bands
    Your “gardener” is wise. I’ll have to recommend a new weed eater,
    to mine, when he gets up from his nap.

    Moxi Junction looks like a delightful place.
    I didn’t know John sells his jewelry at craft fairs. That is great! So nice he has a hobby .. and one that brings in some cash. heh-heh!
