Wool Heaven!


I'm here at the ATHA biennial in Lancaster, PA.  Talk about a plethora of hookers!  
Before heading to Rebecca Erb's Wool Studio, we decided to make a quick stop at the rug show and to peruse the vendors.
I was so excited to run in to fellow hookers and blog friends.  Perhaps you will recognize the legs to the left.  Here's a hint if you are a blog reader of hers.  It's the first time she's worn shoes in a long time.  She's finally given up her flip-flops!




 Then it was off to the Wool Studio.  Wool heaven!  Hooker's crack, as Kim once called it :)

 


In addition to Rebecca's wool, there were a number of other vendors set up selling their goods.







This guy was sold!



Here are the hookers who go with the legs.  That's Joanne of Snippets and Scraps and Kathy from Woolfind.  They are just a couple of sweeties!




I have so much more to share . . . the rug show, vendors, and last evening's class with Barbara Carroll, but that will have to be another day.  It's time to "hook" up with another classy lady I've met through blogland ~ Doris from Moments in Time.
Thanks for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Ooooh, I'm feeling all "stoned" looking at all that hookers crack. Good grief, I would go nuts at a show like that!

Wow....just WOW!!! Thanks Lauren - now I gotta figure out how to get drool off my keyboard. I wouldn't know where to begin - I'd be on sensory overload! Hook? NO WAY!!! I'd be fondling wool and collecting flies in my mouth. Those dimensional pieces and cutouts are amazing! And those rugs! Oh those glorious rugs!!! Don't have to tell you to have fun - I know you're eating it up!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Looks like "wool heaven" indeed!! Thanks for sharing your wool adventures with those of us who weren't able to be there. Loved the pictures.

Kathleen said...

Lauren,

I was there at the Biennial and missed you! You must have taken this pic of Kathy and Joanne (whom I only met that day) either before or after I was chatting with them. Darn it! Well...next time.
It was a great event...well done. Of course, some wool caught a ride home with me as did a Kris Miller and a Lucille Festa pattern. Hooker's Heaven is right!

Alice said...

Jealousy is such an unproductive emotion - I must keep repeating this!! Love those three dimensional pieces & the painted pieces! Can't wait to see your purchases!!!! Have big fun & thanks for the message from Heather - that was sweet of her!!!
