The Country Loft is retiring in six months!!
I am saddened today years and years of friendships and classes are ending. We are all hoping we can somehow meet once a month at a library or senior center we just don't know.
I question if I should still continue blogging.I love blogging but with no Country Loft pictures I fear my life is not going to be exciting enough Lol.
There are so many good bloggers out there and sometimes I wonder since I never seem to increase my reader count if it's time to close my key board and just read others blogs.I do get lots of hits on my blog though.
I have enjoyed all the friendships and pin pals my blogging has made possible. I do enjoy sharing all the ladies work in my blog.What to do?
Now on to the dilemma at hand. Like a quilt group a rug hooking group serves the same function. Close friendships have evolved over the years by shared moments that have challenged all of us at different times. I would never have met some of my friends but for the Country Loft.
Sometimes I have been overwhelmed by my daughters illness and frankly worn from worry by such ups and downs of her progressive illness and helplessness at the situation at hand. I see these talented ladies having their own life challenges and yet going on with dignity and great positive attitudes! Plus of couse keeping busy. They have been good examples and treasures to me of what I want to be like as I age. I think we can always be inspired and shown by others on how to handle adversity and not becoming bitter. Getting older is not easy!
Beautiful old glass
So even though Country Loft has been a little shop it has been so much more to me . It has been a little oasis from this crazy busy world.

I know it's messy but I start with someones design and
then I have to modify to make it my own and more personal.
Good bye yellow brick road six months from now is counting down.
I stopped by Dee's after rug hooking to pick up some wood to use as a pattern.
