More Sauder Rugs and an update on a Pug ~

If you are tired of seeing rugs from the show at Sauder, skip this post but please stop by another time :)

This is a rug by Donna Hrkman.  Unbelievable is the adjective that comes to mind.

A close up.

This rug was also at the show last year but I just had to show it again.  It is one of the most moving rugs I have ever seen.  Also hooked by Donna.

Jenny Rupp had a featured exhibit.  Sorry, but this picture would not turn for me.

I wish I had a clearer picture of this rug.  I love it!

More of Jenny's rugs.

And yet another special exhibit.

A couple miscellaneous rugs.

I'm sure many of you will recognize April's rug.

Last rug today but certainly not least.  I LOVE this rug!  It just makes me smile.  (I bet Tammy will like it, too.)

I received an email from Lulu's new dad today and I am so happy to report that she is doing GREAT and has settled in nicely and gets along just fine with Baloo her 10 year old pug sister.  Woo hoo!  Another Ohio Pug Rescue success story!

Thanks for stopping by!
Pug(less) hugs :)


  1. Glad to see all the rugs again here - it's so hard to take it all in with the walk through that I do. I've been hooking all week with my new stash of wool. ~Ann

  2. Lauren - You're so lucky to have seen all these beautiful rugs in person - thanks for sharing the photos with us who live to far away to attend.

    BTW - do you know if Donna Hrkmann has a blog?

  3. Never tire of seeing rugs and it's the next best thing if you can't be there! So happy for Lulu!

  4. Amazing!!! I also love looking at these works of art. Wow!

  5. Glad to hear Lulu is doing well. I lOVE the rug with Basset and his ears blowing in the wind.

  6. Oh wow, Lauren...amazing rugs - how fortunate you are to see these in person. That first one is just absolutely amazing!! I have seen that pumpkin one before and actually have the pattern - am hoping to do it some day (if those welcome cats don't wear out their welcome and would kindly get their furry butts off my hooking frame!!) And love the last two too! Oh heck - what am I talking about? They're all amazing and sometimes make me think I should just give up on this hooking stuff...I'll never be half as talented as these folk are!! Thanks for sharing! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  10. Thanks so much for sharing the photos. Without people such as you and your generousity, so many of us would not be able to see these beautiful rugs. I know you have to take time away from just enjoying your visit and wory. about getting good shots. Thank you for doing it.
