More Rugs and More Thank You's ~

Through the generosity of my blog readers, Eema and Cher are currently in second place in the calendar voting, but with a few yet untallied votes, may actually be in first place.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!  Voting continues through July 1.
I visited with Eema and Cher yesterday.  Though the tumor has grown a bit, Eema is still her same sweet self (unless you invade too much of her space and then she gets a little grumpy) and is showing no signs of distress.

Here are more rugs from Saturday's rug show.

Isn't this a fun rug?

I LOVE this rug!

The same pattern but two totally different rugs.

I hope I've got the story correct.  The Dunham Tavern Museum has this antique rug that is showing its age.  Here is the original rug.


The Western Reserve Rug Hooking Guild was asked to reproduce the rug.  It was a group effort by many hookers and here is the result.  They did an excellent job!  Well done, hookers :)


I'm off on a short get-away with dear friend Wink (aka Mary).  We plan to antique and visit the Coverlet Museum in Bedford, PA.  From there we head to Chambersburg to visit Grant Street Woolworks.  I am so excited.  I hope to meet Kathy, Joanne, Pat and Doris.  I feel like I know these dear ladies though we have never actually met.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Please come again soon!
Pug hugs :)
