This post will be short on words today! I'm getting ready to go to Sauder Village in western Ohio for their week-long rug retreat!!! Yippee!!! I'll be taking class with Jule Marie Smith and really looking forward to that ~ I think there's a lot to learn from her in regard to color and color planning!!
I'm posting all these photos from a local hook-in I went to in June hosted by Katie Allman. It's taken me long enough to get them on here but this is perfect ~ gives me something to post about and you some great rugs to look at while I'm gone!
The suitcase is almost packed ~ I'm off to get my gray hairs colored before we leave at noon ~ Heidi is coming to pick me up and we're off for 5 days of hooking and eating and seeing lots of our rug hooking friends! Heather Ritchie from England will be teaching and Heidi will be in her class!
So enjoy the pictures and I'll be taking lots of rug photos at Sauder and blogging about the week when I return! It will be great fun, I know but getting ready to go and getting things in order here at home for Tad and Sonny is pretty much done!! Thank goodness Sonny is a very resourceful guy and he'll keep the homefires burning while I'm gone! And Tad's caregiver, Barb, will watch over him during the day ~ so I can leave worry free!!
Have a good week one and all!!
Hope you're enjoying these great rugs!! I can't believe it but I just couldn't get it together to get rugs registered for the Sauder show ~ and I had to arrange for shipping them home, since we'll be leaving a day before the rug show ends. Just too much to figure that all out!! So no Alice rugs at Sauder!
Sonny asked me if there is a prize or why I like to do that ~ it's just the thrill of seeing my rugs displayed for other rug hookers to look at and hanging there with some really wonderful rug hooking ~ just my own little ego trip, I guess!!!
That's it ~ I'm off ~ ta ta for now!! Alice
