Hooking Fun ~

Saturday was the annual hook in at Kingwood Center in Mansfield, Ohio, put on by Katie of Kid'l de Divey Woolens.  She so graciously hosts this every year with no charge to the participants. Once again this year she asked me to sell my spoon jewelry.  Thank you Katie!!!
This year's theme was a groovy style Christmas tree.  Twenty hookers took the challenge and hooked a piece designed by Karla Gerard. Unfortunately, I failed to get any pictures of the challenge pieces.  
Groovy Santa made an appearance and handed out gifts.  Upon arrival, everyone signed either a naughty or a nice list.  

I'm not sure what the gift was for being on the nice list, but those of us on the naughty list got this :)

I didn't have time to take many pictures, but I did manage to get a few of the rugs on display.

These were "friendship" rugs hooked by Katie and friends.  The owner of each rug chose a theme and hooked one block and then it was passed on to someone else and so on until the rug was completed.  What fun.  Not the best pictures.  Sorry.

It was a wonderful day spent amongst hooking friends.  Life is good!
Thanks for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Looks like you had great time with great people. Would love to have been able to see all those hooked pieces in person. And hope you went home with no spoon jewelry left but with a hand full of cash.

I can't believe that you were signed up on the naughty list, lol. That looks like a joyful event. I hope that you sold lots of your necklaces.
I'm having fun just looking at all the rugs so I can imagine that your fun meter was right there at the top.

Love the rug pictures, and the naughty or nice idea with prizes is so funny! That was a great idea. Thanks for all the pictures.

Lauren what a fun day. I was so glad to be able to attend. I never did bring anything to work on since I knew I had a lot of chatting to do. What a great bunch of gals attend this event. And so glad you took pics of the rugs. Once again I was so in awe of them that I forgot to take out my camera. See you soon.
