I wanted you to see a close-up of this piece. This is Annette's second rug ~ second mind you! She's doing a great job ~ an amazing job to me!
Karen brought her rug done in a class with my friend, Maria. Quite a colorful background and a nice contrast to the softer colors in the pumpkins. Very nice ~ and so was Karen!
The gals brought a few rugs for a rug show! We put them in the exercise room right off the hooking room and of course, I didn't get pictures of all of them.
I was kind of a busy bee that day but managed to get this one before it's owner went home. I love this rug and could easily have made it work here in our house! She almost left it ~ that would have been too sad!!
This beautiful rug belongs to Jane ~ a lady I have done shows with in the past for many years. We hadn't seen each other in a long time and now through rug hooking, we have reconnected! She and her crafting partner made many jumpers and sweatshirts and I was a doll maker at that time ~ we spent many a weekend peddling our wares at the same shows!
This group of gals were so nice, so appreciative and complimentary ~ it was a pleasure to have them here. Thanks to Sharon for bringing her group and I hear they want to come back in the fall!! We'll be ready!! My friend Vivian helps me serve lunch and I sure couldn't do it without her! If you have a group you would like to bring, email me or call me to set up a date! You'll have a homemade lunch, a tour of our house and can spend the day hooking in my hooking studio!
By the way, in just a few days, I will have Lori Brechlin's paper patterns of the Bee Chairpad to sell. They are $12 and I should have them in time for the Western Reserve Hook-in where I'll be vending this Saturday. I'll also have available some of the dyed blue background wool that I used in mine. Let me know if you would like one!!
I'm working at my desk today ~ scary in here again! And sometime, I will squeeze in some dyeing between now and Saturday! Thanks for stopping by ~ hope you're having a good day!
