Trying to decide what to hook at the Heavens to Betsy rug camp next week is very stressful. I first thought I would hook the antique roosters. This is super hooker Carole's rug. Alice was also hooking this rug and it can be seen here.
My next thought was to hook the Magdalena Menagerie with Pugs that Kathy of Briarwood Folk Art drew up especially for me. I love the pattern and one of these days I will get the nerve to start it, but I think I want something with much less detail to hook at camp.
Which leads me to this. What Nots, a pattern I purchase from the Woolley Fox over a year ago. It was also the first quarter 2012 challenge done by the hookers/punchers over at an American Primitive Gathering. The pattern is 21" x 40" and will be the largest rug I have hooked to date.
Is there any advice you seasoned rug camp hookers can give me about going to camp? Anything I should take that I normally wouldn't think of? Any and all suggestions would be most welcome. It's a good thing I'm going by car because just about everything but the kitchen sink is already on my list of things to take :)

I snapped these pics at lunchtime. The little bird was having such a good time drinking from my fountain.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
