Good Morning All,

I arrived home last night to find that my aol email addy had been hacked. What a major nuisance to get it straightened out. I am going to start using my other email address, mhdesigner1@gmail.com and I will notify my whole list of the change over the next few weeks.

On to more pleasant things. I have been teaching over the past few weeks and that is always fun for me. I have a few photos to share, and will get to that soon. Yesterday, a friend sent me this link and I thought that you all might enjoy seeing it.

Have a good day

Good Morning Everyone,

I am so honored, happy and excited all at once. I just read this on the CGOA Digest

It gives us great pleasure to announce that Margaret Hubert has been elected to
the Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall Of Fame for 2012. Margaret will be recognized
at Chain Link in Manchester New Hampshire at Chain Link.

Kimberly McAlindin and Cari Clement

The Jean Leinhauser Crochet Hall of Fame was started last year, and to be the second recipient of this honor, and especially to follow Jean Leinhauser, is overwhelming to me. My thanks to all who voted for me, it is truly the highlight of my long and varied career in this industry.

Free Form and Entrelac

Hi Everyone,

It has been a while since I posted but with good reason. I had a serious health issue, but I am on the mend and trying to get back to my normal routine.

I finished my latest book, and believe it or not, have started another, so like the energizer bunny, I just keep going and going.

Last week, I resumed my teaching schedule.  Last Wednesday, I started with a Free Form talk for the Skyllkill Chapter of the EGA in Hyde Park, NY. We had quite a large group, around fifty members, and we had a great time. I covered my three methods of creating free form pieces, and also covered combining knitting and crocheting in the same piece. Lots of enthusiasm from the group. I usually bring a box of cookies to my workshops, but when I entered the room where the chapter meets, I saw a table laden with goodies of every description, I was embarrassed by my little box of cookies, so I never took them out of my suitcase. :-)

The next day, we did a workshop on Entrelac Knitting at the East Fishkill Community Library
in East Fishkill, NY. As this workshop was also sponsored by the Skyllkill Chapter, many of the students were also at the previous program.  Before the workshop was over all students were well on their way to making a lovely Entrelac Bag.

                                                         Such concentration
                                                           Busy, busy working
Look what I did!!!

Here's the bag that they hope to complete on their own.

Have a great day!
