Below are some of the rugs brought in for display. The pictures don't do them justice!
This was a lovely wool applique done on wool fabric. Absolutely beautiful! The colors are so vibrant!!
A rug being hooked by one of the attendees! Aren't to colors gorgeous!
A rug that I thought was so nice! At first I thought "Wow! I'd love to hook this rug!" but then I thought of how big it is and decided I needed to pace myself and work up to something this big! LOL! I can't remember which vendor had it displayed. :(
So the hook-in was fun, overwhelming, inspiring, and at the end of the day tiring! On the way there it rained. When we got there it was pouring! We made a mad dash from the car into the building. We found a table and as I was setting up I realized I had left my frame in the car. So it was a mad dash to the car and back but oh well. We met a lot of very friendly people. Saw a lot of awesome rugs in progress. We were amazed at the women that were hooking with #3 wool! WOW! Such tiny pieces of wool!!!! But the results were beautiful! An awesome lunch provided by Log Cabin Caterers. Then we went shopping at Country Craft Cupboard in Berlin, Ohio. I bought some rug binding, a pair of scissors, some primitive linen, and a few other odds and ends. They were having people pull eggs from a basket and inside were little pieces of paper with a % off - I got 25% off my purchase so I was a very happy camper. The drive home wasn't as rainy but we were pretty tired. By the time I got home and ate some dinner I was practically falling asleep in my plate! I went to bed at 8:15 p.m. and slept until 7:30 the next morning.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
Have a great evening!
