All images and text are the property of me, Alice. If it's my pattern, ask and I will make one available ~ if it's someone else's, I will direct you to that person. Thanks for honoring the creativity of myself and others!
My life is a busy one ~ my husband, Sonny, and I have a blended family of 6 kids, 5 of them married and 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren! We have a building business and I am the Office Personnel, if you know what I mean!! I also have a small rug hooking business in my home studio, where I sell as-is wool and my own hand-dyed wool, beautiful frames and stands that my husband builds and some finished hooked pieces, etc. I would love to hook every day, all day, as I'm sure many of you would ~ but that's rarely possible!! Thanks for checking in and I hope you'll find A DAY IN THE LIFE ~ ~ ~ entertaining!!
These are some of my hooking friends ~ old and new!! Well, they're not old ~ you know what I mean! Charisse in front, and Sue, Karen, Pam and me, and Carol in the back row!! Charisse, Sue and Pam were nice enough to take me with them ~ they are three very close friends and I appreciate being included.
Karen and Carol are sisters and really nice gals, as well! Karen's rug hooking guild is selling these playing cards for $10 and each one has a hooked rug picture ~ really well done! Karen gifted each of us with a deck ~ hooray! And I wanted to give you the information, if you would like to order a deck from her. It is the Buffalo Trace Rug Hooking Guild in southern Indiana and you can email Karen at email@example.com .
and she will happily send them to you! A great present for your friends and yourself! Thank you, Karen, for thinking of me! All of these gals met at another hooking event and planned to meet in Berlin! WE meet wonderful people in the rug hooking world!
This is Sue's rug that she started in Betsy Reed's class the day before the hook-in. Really cute rug and she got a lot done!!
Charisse hooked this horsey ~ and really got a lot of background done, too but that was after her photo shoot!! She was our driver and did a great job!!
Pam is quite a nice hooker but she's a gad-about and I think this was what she hooked in two days!! We love to tease her ~ she's a social butterfly and very sweet!
This is the same horse as Charisse is doing ~ hard to tell isn't it? I'm doing mine in 1" hand-torn strips! You could call this a chunky little horse ~ very chunky! I've got a lot of background done ~ not sure I'm crazy about my color planning ~ hit and miss with all my scrap wool and worms! That part I like! I'll show it to you next week!! Some of the colors have already been replaced ~ I'm going to figure this out yet!
The hook-in was hosted by the Amish Country Wool Artisans and there are 8 ladies who put this all together! They do a wonderful job ~ we had a beautiful big room and great food ~ lots of vendors and lots of rug hooking friends to visit! It was a great two days in the middle of Amish country with kindred spirits! What could be better?
There was a rug show, too ~ I'll post pictures of that next time! Have a great weekend! The weather is beautiful in Ohio right now ~ finally! I know some of my blog friends are not having quite such good weather where they are! Hang on ~ Spring is on it's way to you, too!
