Library Hookers ~


I spent a couple hours this evening hooking at the library.  It was a small group but so much talent. Peggy is hooking this delightful Heavens to Betsy pattern.  Her neutral back is absolutely wonderful ~ so much better in person.


I am almost certain this is the wool she is using but cutting it against the selvage.  It is just an old looking background.


Heidi loves her bright colors.  She is leaning towards a background with just a hint of purple in it.


More bright colors in Jane's Karla Gerard pattern using some alternative fibers.  It is going to be stunning upon completion.


Marsha is a relatively new hooker but you'd never know it.  Her footstool is coming along just great :)


And moi.  I've made a bit of progress on What Nots.  I'm not lovin' it yet ~ maybe that's why I haven't hooked on it in the last year and a half. I'm hoping it will grow on me the more I get hooked.


Not that I'm wishing my life away, but I am happy that tomorrow is Friday.  I have a hot date with my favorite little redhead.  Lake Erie perch for dinner (if you've not had Lake Erie perch, you haven't lived) and hopefully the Muppets movie. Life is good.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Hi Lauren, I have been trying to clean up my wool and my patterns so I am on a little break from hooking. Have to get back at it. I think I have that same background wool from Betsy. I like the way it hooks from the picture. Are you going to Gathered Treasures? Hope to see you there.
