Kathy works for Barb at the Woolley Fox and she brought in her almost finished Purple Peeps!! We all loved her bright, Spring-like version ~ she's almost finished ~ we got the idea that she had been working on it a while! Hook on, Kathy!!!
This Saturday, the "Gathered Treasures Christmas Show" will be held at the Richland County Fairgrounds! It's a new primitive antiques and folk art show put on by the gals that do the "Gathered Treasures Spring" show and "In The Spirit of Friends" at Malabar Farm in the Fall. It's from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. so if you're looking for a fun way to spend the day, come see us! As shocked as I am, Christmas is right around the corner and this would be a good place to start your shopping! We'll be there with wool, frames, etc. ~ gifts for your favorite hooker!! I am packing now and have a BARGAIN BASKET with some great mark downs (lights, pillows, candle holders, etc.). Also have some 1 yard bundles of wool for $20 and some $5 Christmas trees!! I'm cleaning out the shop ~ come to the fairgrounds and save some money!!!!!
My 'Finishing Touches' class is now added to the Coming Events on my sidebar. Sauder Village class sign ups started yesterday at 10 a.m. ~ I wonder if anybody's on my list?! We won't really know much until December. There is always a frenzy to get your favorite teacher but no doubt, there are some who are not full yet. So, if you're thinking you might like to experience Sauder Rug Hooking Week, you should check in and see if there are still openings ~ or at least, come for the day. They have one of the best rug shows in the country and Kathy Wright works very hard to assemble a list of very talented teachers and give us lots of choices ~ you should consider putting it on your next summer's list of things to do!
I need to get organized for tomorrow's packing ~ right now, I'm washing and wishing ~ washing wool and wishing I would get some new projects finished!!! Off to the hooking room!! Have a good weekend!
