"My Bags are Packed and Ready to Go...."

That sounds like a song, don't ya think?  Since I'm leaving tomorrow morning nlt 9:30 a.m. to catch the Lewes/Cape May Ferry there will be lots to finish on the packing since the curler, hair dryer, make-up, snacks, will need to be packed in the morning.  

This is the view from the rear of the van. You can see the white and red wine was safely placed.  Seems everyone depends on me bringing wine so I take what I like and is affordable for me.  

The rugs for the show are in those two totes on the far right.  The big duffel bag was a gift from Polly Minick and the other is of vintage fabric.

This is from the passenger side.  The suitcase is open so that the blow dryer and curling iron can be slipped in tomorrow.  In the back you can see my smaller rotating sit-upon.  That is what I'll use to hook on the sheep rug for the hour long ferry ride as well as in the hotel room at the Chalfonte at night.   My floor frame with Snapdragon  will stay in the classroom awaiting me each morning; that hasn't been packed yet since I'm HOPING to sit and pull a loop or two!!!!!!
Naturally all camps are a joy to attend; but am in desperate need of running away from home.  This summer I've had an issue with not only the OLD riding mower but the new one and am having the house sitter deal with it while I'm gone.  Tried and failed to cut the grass the last two weeks and the yard is in sad shape.  

Then the FULL last month problems with my Windows 7 computer crashing and the purchase of not one, but two Windows 10 computers. The first HP which made me return to Best Buy several times and a letter to Microsoft was eventually exchanged for a Dell.  Sadly there have been nit picky issues after that so I'm ready to runaway from home. Never did that as a kid but am ready to do that now as an adult. Not to worry friends, I'll be missing Ben and will be looking forward to seeing my driveway after camp.  Promise pictures of fun and the rug show.

Some friends from town also will be in the Cape May area and plan to drop by the rug show on Wednesday.  I told them that after class and after picking up my rugs we'd sit on the veranda outside our room and have a glass of wine.  Hmmm, maybe I need to pick up more wine. 

Will post something during the week from Cape May but need this escape first.  Hope all my on-line blogger gal pals are having fun in their locations too. My iPad will be handy so if you need to contact me please feel free to do so and I'll get back to you asap.  UH, if it is negative energy I'll deal with that when I get home.

Okay kiddies, getting back to getting ready to leave tomorrow.  So TA TA.



  1. Have a safe trip and I hope you have a wonderful time at the retreat.


  2. Have a great time and I look forward to lots of pictures and posts.

  3. Ohh sounds like such a great trip. Have fun (I know you will) and take lots of pictures so the rest of us can live vicariously through you.

  4. I'm envious - love Cape May. What a wonderful place to enjoy a yarn craft! (They sell wine in New Jersey lol).

  5. Hope you have a fabulous week. Sounds like just the thing to take your mind off of your stress at home! Can't wait to hear (and see) all about it!

  6. Go ahead and enjoy yourself as much as you can. Hook and be merry. Ben will be waiting for your return. Hope that your lawn and yard will be in great condition when you get back. I bet my lawn will look like a jungle when I get back home and I don't even want to think about my garden.

    I'm being kidnapped by my little grandson Daniel.
    I'm not sure if I'll survive but two days of babysitting went better than I thought it would. Half a day to go to earn my badge of super Mamoo. hehe.

  7. Whoopee, today's the day... You're off to Cape May for relaxing & hooking!! Put your worries behind ya & have an awesome time with friends & sitting at your frame! Should be a great time, heard of a few other great hooker gals that were going to Cape May! Looking forward to lots of pictures, enjoy!!

  8. Saundra,
    Running away is good!!! Returning home is good, too :)
