Thank you so much for dropping by. I hope everyone has had a great weekend.
Friday was hooking day at the library. The weather here on Ohio's north coast was absolutely gorgeous, so I think some of the hookers decided to take advantage of the weather and not spend the day in the basement of the library!
In a previous post, I showed you Sylvia's rug about 80% done. She just now is working on the binding even though the hooking was done ages ago. (I hope she's not taking lessons from me!) I could not capture the true colors in the first picture, but the two close-ups are a much better representation. Did I mention this rug is HUGE?
Deanna's cockscomb rug is nearing completion. It will definitely make a statement hanging on the wall!
Carol only had the upper left corner of the rug to finish when she ran out of wool. I'm sure the next time I see her it will be totally completed. She is one hooking machine! This is an adaptation of a 1940's rug.
Lisa just started on another antique adaption. Her colors are so old and worn looking. Lisa always picks the most perfect colors.
Mitsuko is hooking yet another antique adaptation. This is the same design Carol hooked recently. Carol came up with a very clever name for the rug, but it escapes me :( Kaye is just getting started on her rug.
Karin is hooking these love birds for a wedding gift. The colors are MUCH better in person.
Finally, my rug. I've started hooking Magdalena's horses. I swear, I don't think anyone could hook any slower than I do! In several hours, the only thing I hooked was part of the outline. I guess if it weren't for all the laughing and all the eating, I would have gotten more hooked. Mitsuko made the most wonderful Japanese rice dish ~ no Uncle Ben's here. Karin brought home made banana bread, Deanna a yummy spring mix salad with dried cherries and cashews and Andrea some cookies. If I've forgotten anyone, I apologize, but I just remember the things I ate...lol!
Last, but certainly not least, here's Andrea knitting a pair of socks on what I thought were teeny tiny needles. You must check out her blog! She and her sister (aka Farmer Gal) are starting a new farm venture (That'll Do Farm) with alpaca, goats, sheep, chickens, etc and will offer knitting and hooking get togethers and who knows what else. (With Andrea's sense of adventure and humor, the sky's the limit!) For those of you wondering, I did get my dry sink and I LOVE it. I'll post pictures soon ~ I promise!
I hope your week starts off with a bang.
Pug hugs :)
