Amish Country Wool Artisans Hook In ~



Yesterday was a great day to spend hooking. (Actually, any day is.)  Though the sun was shining, it was a cold day in Ohio.  A few flurries were encountered on the way to Millersburg, Ohio, in the heart of Ohio's Amish country for a hook-in.  Probably more time was spent conversing than hooking, but it was good to spend time with old hooker friends ~ and new ones, too.
So much talent was on display.  {The color on a few of the rugs is very washed out due to the sunlight streaming in.}  I hope you enjoy the show as much as I did.





























Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

What wonderful eye candy. I was hoping to get to the hook-in in Ann Arbor this weekend, but some family commitments came up (it's always the way). I'm sure that you come away from those with such a feeling of inspiration!!

Thanks for sharing all the beautiful rugs with us. For someone like me who hooks alone, your generosity in sharing is the only way I can see what every one else is doing.
Oh, and I have been meaning to thank you for the moon cycle on the top of your blog. It's a touch that I look for and know I can get it from you.
thanks,
trisha
