The Western Reserve Rug Hooking Guild always puts on an amazing hook in and this year was no exception. Excellent food, vendors, door prizes and Chinese auction baskets. I was not lucky enough to win anything, but did come home with a few things. I was REALLY, REALLY trying to be good (which is NO fun). Lord knows I don't need to buy any wool, but . . . Betsy Reed (Heavens to Betsy) was there so how could I resist? That top wool is almost identical to the wool I used for the flag canton on Daisy, perhaps just a tad lighter. The middle wool is a great heathery blue and the bottom wool will be a good one to overdye.
The first booth I headed to was the booth of folk artist Rebekah L. Smith. This darling little box came home with me. Rebekah is just the sweetest person you could ever hope to meet and her work is perfection.
She has an amazing sense of color and chooses the most wonderful fabrics.
I was also fortunate to be able to attend her mini class held during the hook in. We worked on a little floss bag which I completed at home. The heart is not stitched at the top so it can hold your scissors and a little pin cushion is attached.
On the back is a flap to hold your needles. So sweet.
By the time I got to the rug show, people were already removing their rugs, but I will have some to share in my next post.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
