Our trip to Sauder did not quite start as planned. About 30-40 minutes from Sauder, still on the Ohio turnpike, a warning light appeared. I looked it up in the owner's manual, and it was electronic throttle thing-a-ma-bob. The Jeep was running rough but we drove on. Thankfully got off the turnpike before it died :( AAA was called and luckily Bobbie had already arrived so came to our rescue. Melissa was sure she had blown the engine but it ended up being a dead battery. Dead battery??? I thought a battery only started the vehicle, but I guess it also keeps the electronics working.
Here are a few of the amazing rugs being hooked at the Sauder retreat. Tulip Cross (so sorry I can't identify the hooker) is 48" x 48", me thinks. Simply amazing with breathtaking colors. Acorn Hollow Cathy, you hooked this one, right?
Dawn, our overachiever was hooking with handtorn strips for the first time. I don't know how she got so much done because every time you saw her, she was socializing, not hooking. She may have even finished before leaving.
Don't you just love this face. Sweet hooking by Pam.
Charisse chose the most beautiful colors for her rug. I hooked this one last year, but like her colors so much more.
Melissa was hooking this heart and hand. I hope to share her finish soon.
Bobbie was working on a sheep rug and had just one small troublesome area to finish and decided to start on this antique adaptation.
Isn't this too cute??? The sheep were hooked Waldoboro style.
Check out the sweet little butts.
Just a fun rug.
Congrats to Susie. She won my heart hooked with handtorn strips. Some of you may recognize the name from eBay or Facebook. She makes the most incredible pin keeps, sewing birds, etc. Susie, you have three days to contact me with your snail mail address.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
