In the Dictionary ~

If you looked up the words sweet, talented or fun in the dictionary, you just might find a picture of this hooker.  Katie, of Kid'l de Divey Woolens is a hooker extraordinaire and the fastest hooker you will meet.  McGowan certified, I bet there isn't a style of hooking she hasn't tried.  She has taught many Deanne Fitzpatrick classes, wide cut shading and the list goes on. Her latest hooking venture is these funky fish.  She wouldn't say what she is going to do with them, but she has a whole school.  I think she finished two or three the two days we were at Sauder. They are hooked with wool, roving, yarn and who know what else?

Her hooking partners in crime are Sue on the left and Deb in the middle.  

Deb was hooking this fun goat . . .

. . . while Sue was working on this design in a 3 cut.  (Makes me want to floss my teeth . . .lol!)  Sue normally doesn't hook this fine, (a couple weeks ago she was hooking with hand torn strips) but she is working on her McGowan certification.  It is beautiful but not something I plan to try in this lifetime.

Happy Valentine's Day, my friends.  Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to pay me a visit.

  1. I do love her fish great color. Looks like a fun group glad you had fun.

  2. That Katie is something else! She is just as nice as she is talented! I have NEVER seen anyone hook like Katie...she's so darn fast and her rugs are just beautiful! I still want to know what she is going to do with those fish! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day, Lauren!

  3. Those fish are fabulous! What fun! Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  4. Evening Lauren, wow!!!! Those fish are the Cupid from OLM, so sweet, Happy Love Day, Francine.

  5. Love the fish, those are so fun. Looks like a great retreat.


  6. Love the fish. First i wonder that it was real then i decided not. Happy Valentine Day!!

  7. What great photos !
    And, those fish - how fun.

  8. Oh my gosh, those fish are so cool! Thanks for sharing! Happy Valentine's Day!

  9. Love those fish! We need to make some fishing poles for her to hang them from. The big round sunfish is my favorite! Your cupid is cute too! Love his bloomers! :-) Happy Valentine's Day!

  10. Oh Lauren, thanks so much for the beautiful Valentine Lavender Heart Sachet.You shouldn't have but I'm so glad you did. Imagine my surprise when I went to the mail box on Thursday morning. Our mail delivery lady is always so late and that poor beautiful heart was all alone in my mailbox overnight. I love it so much. It smells sooo nice.

    Great fishes for the cottage by the lake. I love it, only I don't have a cottage by the lake, lol. I would love to see a video of that girl hooking a fish. She must be a super fast hooker.

    Those are all great rugs. I don't mind hooking small detailed areas with #3 cuts but a whole rug would be a tedious job.
    Thanks again for the gift. Big hugs to you my sweet friend.

  11. Happy Valentines day to you as well. What a fun time you must have had those ladies look like a blast. What pretty rug you can get with three but I don't think I would like using that narrow of a strip.
    Who knows though. I hope you get to have a holiday weekend.

  12. Great hooking projects, great hookers and what a wonderful primitive angel! Happy Valentine's Day to you friend.


  13. Loving those fun fish! So many fun projects.Happy Valentine's Day! Be blessed,Jen

  14. Happy Valentine's Day, Lauren. I'm with you...#3 cut is not something I plan to do, but I do appreciate the detail and beauty created with fine cuts :0)

    Hugs, Linda

  15. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY...Beautiful works...Hugs lil raggedy Angie
