Betsy, of Heavens to Betsy fame, was the guest presenter at the Amish Country hook-in. Last summer I attended Betsy's retreat (if you are looking for a wonderful retreat in a beautiful location, be sure to check in to check it out) at Shaker Village in Kentucky. Betsy is so down to earth and believes there are no hooking rules that MUST be followed.
These are too sweet! Betsy gave a little demo on how she does her patchwork backs.
Miss Kitty was stuffed with lavender and smelled heavenly.
Isn't this a fun rug. It is much more muted in person. She did a braiding demonstration showing us how to add a braided edge to a rug.
Even though I've not yet hooked the cat pattern I bought at the retreat last summer, I had to add this one to my stash.
And how could you attend a hook-in and not come home with a few yummy wools?
Saturday I am off to another hook-in, this one in Ann Arbor, MI. In my next post, I'll show the progress I've made on my Magdalena runner.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Pug hugs :)
