This is one of my favorite Valentine's Day postcards. I love anything patriotic.
Happy Valentine's Day to you. I hope you get to spend your day doing whatever makes you happy. I was going to go "play" today at the antique shops about an hour from home. I have a bit of "fun money" that is burning a hole in my pocket. Well, the weather is not co-operating. It's snowing and ever since my crash on an icy highway a couple years ago, I play it safe.
There is much I can do here at home ~ hook, work on the applique for my Rebekah Smith workshop, blog, read blogs, do a little Facebook and if I run out of things to do I can always clean . . . lol . . . but I don't think that will happen :)
This was the last heart I finished and it is my favorite. I love how the back turned out. Time consuming but worth it. It is now happily residing in South Carolina.
I never take as many pictures at a retreat as I would like, but here are a few to share with you. I can't believe I didn't get a picture of my hooking partners in crime, Melissa and Bobbie. So sorry, gals :(
This magnificent rug is being hooked by Cindi Gay. I believe she started it in 2007 but has worked on other rugs in between. It will be at least 8' x 10' and it is breathtaking. The colors are wonderful and SHE IS HOOKING IT ENTIRELY FROM HER WORMS. Someone asked if she would have to work on other rugs to get more worms, and she said no.
|Dawn from Indiana is hooking this HUGE|
pattern. I believe it is Tulip Cross
|Jane working on her Klimt inspired design using|
many things other than wool to hook it
|Jane's finished Santa|
|Not sure who was hooking this|

There were many fine cut hookers in attendance. They far outnumbered the primitive hookers. I so admire the detail they can achieve, but it is just not for me.
For those who inquired, the issue of Early American Life with the article about Edyth O'Neill is the April 2015 issue.
For those of you who loved the whale rug in my last post, the pattern can be found at "Never Enough Wool". The designer is Lynne A. Kossarek and you can email her here. I was told she does not have a website.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
