Hookin' at the Library ~

There were only a few hookers at the library last night, but what talented ladies!  Karin hooks the most incredible rugs.  This one is currently listed on eBay.  Her seller ID is primitivespirits.  Check it out if you want the perfect rug for Easter disply.  As always, the colors of all these rugs are so much better in person.

And another of Karin's rugs.

And yet another.  This was from a paper pattern included in the January/February 2010 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.

Deanna was hooking this antique adaptation in the softest, old looking wools.

I wish I had captured the true colors of Arlene's rug.  It is just  WONDERFUL!

Here's Jake getting ready to pick the winner of the kitty mat.  Typical kid ~ he has to ham it up for the camera.  It is so funny.  He got that coon skin hat for Christmas and had not looked at it since.  Today he asked where it was and it was his favorite thing.

Congrats to Janice!  She is a pug lady with two adorable pugs ~ Cleo and Winnie.  Winnie has the most beautiful grey face.  I really like those "older" ladies!  Check them out on Jan's blog.

The mail carrier left a surprise in my mailbox yesterday.  Acorn Hollow Cathy sent me this sweet little pincushion she made.  Thank you Cathy!  You made my day.  It is a great addition to my small but growing pin cushion collection.

Pug hugs :)

Great rugs...the urn is beautiful! I had a coon skin hat when I was little and I'm delighted to see they are still around...nothing high tech...just pure imagination taking over when that hat goes on.

Jake is such a cute kid and seems to love showing that space between teeth, my grandson did the same thing.

Congrats Janice! And you too Lauren, for your pincushion collection addition.

Your Davey Crockett is a sweetheart! Love, love those missing front teeth!

And love looking at all those rugs. They make me sign because my plan was to take some more classes from Kris this winter and I didn't get around to it. I just love looking at the ones that you post!!

Oh, yeah - and great job on the guilt trip - the "Welcome Kitties" adaptation made me lustfully look at my hooking frame. Maybe, just maybe, I'll get back to it when this dang term is over....(and I do mean TERM!!) And rats for missing out on another awesome giveaway from you. I LOVE that little kitty mat!!! It's almost as sweet as your Jake Crockett!! Congratulations to lucky Janice! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

Congratulations Janice on winning the cute little kitty rug. I have an identical here that I won from Lauren last year but I had to hook it and what fun it was. I love mine and I know that you will love yours too.

I'm playing catchup with blog friends and running behind again.

I love the Davy Crocket little man, just too cute.
Looking forward to seeing those rugs finished.
Hugs. JB
