While in AZ I will be taking a class with Sharon Smith of Walnut Creek, CA. Now being from CA, and only about 2 hours from Sharon you may wonder why I would go all the way to AZ for the class. Good question. Well, AZ is especially nice in the winter months and we are very fond of the state. It's a great get-away place for us and I've made many hooking friends there from attending classes and teaching there last October. Taking a class with Sharon will be lots of fun and a very exciting part of the adventure is meeting up with my friend Loretta (aka, Hooked on the Lake blog). Loretta is coming in from Canada to take the class. I met Loretta last March in AZ in a Karen Kahle class so here we are rendezvousing again!
|Shep's World before the border is added.|
I've got my wool cut for the border area, and guess what? I made a mess cutting wool and it's OK to make a mess for the first time in 4 months! This is because we received an offer on our house last weekend, we are in escrow and the public showings are over with! Making a mess doesn't cause the same pressure as it did when the house could be shown at a moment's notice.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us to close escrow in early February. We've made an offer on a home in our desired community and it will be a good house for holding hook-ins because there is no organized hooking group in the community. If all goes well we will be moving in mid-February. I'm afraid to be excited till the check is in hand, but it feels like everything is going to work out this time.
