This was our 2011 Blog Challenge display at the Sauder Rug Show!  Friends Heidi, Donna & Arlene joined me at our lake place Tuesday thru Thursday and we made a field trip to Sauder on the opening day!  We had a great time ~ we got there at 10 a.m. and left after Evelyn Lawrence's lecture that ended sometime around 8 p.m.  It was a full day, believe me!! 

Here's all the Blog Challengers ~ Maria Barton, Ali Strebel, Kris Miller and me!!  I was hoping we could get a group photo and it all came together by the hair of our chinny chin chin!!  Maria got there just as Kris was heading off to a class ~ I thrust my cell phone into some lady's hands and we crouched down on the floor and all smiled pretty real fast ~ and then the youngsters had to help this old girl get up!!  It turned out pretty good for a cell phone photo ~ I left my camera at the condo ~ of all times to do that! 

So, all my pictures will be from my phone ~ they aren't the best but there are quite a few ~ I'll be putting them up over several posts ~ so be waiting for your virtual trip thru the rug show!!  We had a great time for sure!!  Very inspiring!!

More to follow ~ I'm off to pay bills ~ I've been gone all week and went to Columbus to the wholesale market this morning ~ so I have to do a little work around here before I lose this good paying job that I have working for my husband!!  Happy weekend to you!

I really enjoyed seeing the challenge projects in person. It was really neat to see how you all had done so many different things with the same objects. Thank you for sharing them with us!

What a great photo!!! I'm so glad everything worked out for you! I hope you enjoyed the rug hookers displays as well. I'm sure that you'll be showing pics of everyone's rugs at some point (because you always do, lol). I can't wait to see the rest of your pics!!!
