Workshop Pictures

Wow!  We had a fantastic fun filled and creative day at the workshop which Selma Stevenson and I did this past Saturday.  Twenty five ladies attended and I think everyone had a great time.  I know I sure did!!!
This sign greeted everyone as they drove to the workshop. (my hubby is so wonderful, he thinks of everything)

We have a nice large field that Jon keeps mowed for parking.  This is the back of our house.

They were greeted with the view of my beautiful flowers as they walked  to the door of the workshop room.

We had 3 long tables of creative ladies.  Selma is standing at the end giving some instructions for the next  project.
A view of most of the ladies.  Can you see my new 8 foot long picture window that over looks my pond?  We just installed it this winter.  The weather was perfect; not to hot or cold and no wind.  We were able to open the garage doors and let the beautiful sunshine in.  The doors have screens on them and I absolutely love them.  It is like I am outside all day long.  This is the room I use for my craft room, computer room, kitchen and workshops.

We had ladies from Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin.
Some drove 4 hours plus to attend.  What dedication!
Darlene, Carol, Cathy and Mary came in on Thursday to help Selma and I set up.
I can't thank them enough!!!  What a blessing they were to us.

Another view standing at the screen doors.

Don't they look like they were hard at work?

Selma and I at the front of the room.  Selma is giving insturctions.  Jon is taking the pictures.
A fabulous creative day!!!!!

Jon worked very hard helping get everything ready for the workshop.  I am so very blessed!!!  And, he was so tired.

On a side note; we had to take Mom to the hospital Tuesday night and then move her in with us.  A lot of the ladies went in the house and talked with her and she so enjoyed it.  Also, my beautician called and wanted to come out and pamper Mom.  She gave Mom a hair cut and style, pedicure and a manicure.  She painted her toenails and fingernails bright red.  What a blessing to Mom as it really picked up her spirits.  I take her to a Pain Management doctor today and we are so hoping he can help relieve some of the pain she is having.
Thanks to all of you who have sent cards to her!  She loves mail and you should see the smile on her face when she receives a card!!!!
