Hook-in ~

Today was the annual Western Reserve Rug Hooking guild's hook-in.  What fun.  Of course, I barely got the camera out and only have a few things to share.  

Betsy's bunnies ~ Betsy of Heavens to Betsy fame.  They were hooked with handtorn strips . . .

. . . and finished "Betsy style".  Aren't they fun?

I purchased the pattern for the medium sized bunny.

Rhonda (My Glory Stars) and Betsy.

Oh, I do love this rug Kaye is hooking.  She always chooses THE BEST primitive colors, but she did say she hooked the rooster THREE times.

Alice's gorgeous wools . . .

. . . and Donna's.

Isn't this bulldog a hoot?  The dog was hooked in handtorn strips.

My winnings from the Chinese auction.  It also came with the finest rug hook I've ever seen.  I think you'd use that hook to hook dental floss . . . lol.  I gave it away before I thought to take a picture.

For the second year in a row I got lucky and won a door prize.  

Even without a flash the colors are too bright.

Yummy new wools (not the true colors, either).

And another Heavens to Betsy pattern. I still haven't hooked the cat pattern I bought from her a couple years ago :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
