I made my annual trek to the rug show at Sauder Village. It is always so inspiring to see what others have hooked. There are MANY talented hookers out there. The day was spent enjoying the rug show, doing a little shopping and chatting with many friends I have met through hooking.
Ann from 1803 Ohio Farm Baskets and I made plans to meet for the first time. Ann is an amazing basket weaver (and cross stitcher and rug hooker and who knows what else) and I asked that she bring one of her wool baskets for me. Let me tell you, this basket is beautiful ~ and huge. That stool is 18" wide so you can see how big it really is. It will be perfect to carry supplies to hooking and will just look darned good sitting out at home.
I felt as if I was meeting up with an old friend. (Well, I am the old part . . . lol!) What a fun day we had together. She is an absolute delight! Of course I thought about taking a picture of her as she was driving out of the parking lot.
The funny thing is that I brought her a few pieces wool to add to her stash. I put it in a red bag with crow tissue paper. This is what she gave to me . . . a red bag with crow tissue paper. How ironic is that?
And this was in my bag!!! This is the other basket I wanted from her but thought I'd better only buy one since I knew I'd be buying some wool. It is just the sweetest basket with the cutest clothes pin feet. THANK YOU, ANN!!! You can check out her wonderful creations in her etsy shop. You won't be sorry!
Late in the afternoon they had what I believe was called a "moving" exhibit. It was a challenge put to hookers to hook a mask. Some people are very creative!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I have LOTS more to share.
Pug hugs :)
