I was bad...very bad ~ ~ Sauder Village part 3

I thought I'd share my purchases from the Sauder Village rug show with you. I bought Rug Hooking Magazine's newest book and got the tote bag free ~ free is always good.
I bought two half yards pieces of washed and ready as-is wool. I am using the wool on the right in my cat rug and it hooks like a dream.
Almost 4 yards of wool from Rebecca Erb. She had samples of the solid rose-colored wool over-dyed and it was gorgeous. Heck, why am I thinking about over-dying? I still haven't even washed the wool I bought from her last year. (As the youngsters would say...my bad!)
Here is my 9.5 Townsend cutter head...
...to go with my new Townsend cutter!!!!! I just got it today. Very exciting. I also got an 8.5 cutter head. I'd better do some serious hooking to make this worthwhile ;-)
As always, thank you for stopping by.
I'll have more rugs from the show to share with you in my next post.
Pug hugs :)

The Townsend is such a delight to use...I love mine...but need one of those 9.5 cutter heads now too!

My sister's friend just took home 2 Ohio rescue pugs and couldn't be happier...

Happy hooking!!

Lucky you to get the new book! I've ordered it from RHM magazine, but it won't even SHIP until October! I should have asked you to buy one for me! LOL Gorgeous wools, and I envy you the new cutter - I just can't justify the cost.

What was it Mae West said--"When I'm bad, I'm very, very good!" I think you did great. As they say, a craftsman (make that woman) is only as good as her tools.

Thanks for all the positive comments! I'm so happy I bought it, but might not feel that way when the MasterCard bill comes...lol!
Kelley ~ a BIG thank you to your sister's friend for adopting the pugs.
Thank you all for stopping by and leaving me a comment. It is always greatly appreciated!
