Technologically Challenged ~ Part II

Thank you for all your suggestions on how to download the pictures from my phone to my computer. I don’t have the capability of sending or receiving pictures on my phone. When I got my phone about a year and a half ago, I checked in to it, and at that time it was about $15.00 a month to add it to my plan. Heck, for $15.00, I can buy almost a yard of new wool! As for the cable… if I had one, it is nowhere to be found.
Lucky for me my Sweetie came to the rescue. He stopped over on his way to school (he teaches adult education in the evening). He put the memory card in my phone, figured how to save the pictures to the card and then downloaded them on to my laptop. Woo hoo! I love that man :)
So without further ado, here are the rugs from the small but mighty group last evening.
This is Lisa's rug being hooked in a 9 cut with the most wonderful black background.
Arlene's Mary Comstock.
Carole's adaptation of an antique rug featured in this month's issue of Early American Life. This rug is HUGE, maybe 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. As I've said before, Carole is hooker extraordinaire!
A little closer view...the blue is an as-is wool that is beautiful!
Karin, eBay seller Primitive Spirits, is working on a Maggie Bonanomi design.
And last but not least is Deanna's rug, started at a Deanne Fitzpatrick workshop. Deanna says the rug is not really "her", so she is hooking it for a friend :)
Sylvia, an amazing knitter, spent the evening working on this grey cape. Oh, the yarn was so soft!
That's it for the rug (and cape) show.
I hope everyone is staying warm. It is supposed to get frigid here on Ohio's north coast for the next few days. How many days until spring???
Pug hugs :)

what a talented group you are with. I would not have paid extra for the picture either. I barely use my phone as it is now.

Great rugs! You ladies are so good at primitive!
Please tell your dear man thanks for making the pictures possible!

Looks like a lot of busy folks. Any fine hookers in the group? The knitting looks great - after all, fiber is what we are all about.
