Thank you all for your kind comments on my last post. I, too, can't believe I have been retired for two years. I still don't have my blog set up where I receive emails so I can respond to you personally. It's on the very long list of things to do. Julie wanted a tutorial on how I put the little mat on the picnic basket. I will show pictures. Really not much explanation needed. I normally don't use rug tape, but thought maybe it would be better for attaching the elastic. I made an X with the 1" black elastic.
Then tacked it in each corner. Easy peasy.
Put Woolkeepers hook in on your bucket list of hook ins to attend if possible. There were so many wonderful vendors selling much more than hooking related items. Of course I neglected to take many pictures.
Betty (aka the dress form) anchored our booth. We were rather amazed that we did not get one comment about her in the 2 days.
Our booth ~
|Melissa's amazing creations|
This rug was displayed in the booth of Elinor Barrett. One of the most stunning rugs ever.
A few pictures from the rug show.
Isn't this the best necklace ever? Frozen Charlottes and bisque head dolls. She said it was quite heavy but I just LOVE it.
I could have spent all my profits and more, but I restrained myself. Just a few drab wools and a necklace all from Jan Adams. Oh, and a Maggie B applique pattern that I did not take a picture of.
These fun little tins are Christmas gifts ~ though I may end up keeping one. They are Altoid tins covered with polymer clay, I think. They were so creative. A very unique gift.
Even though 5+ hours from home, I knew quite a few attendees. Hookers are a rather close knit group and we travel to many of the same hook ins. It was so nice to speak with hookers I see maybe once a year and I had quite a few people introduce themselves as Facebook friends or blog readers. Thanks to all my blog readers who had such kind things to say about my blog. It is why I continue to do it.
Next on the agenda is a small hook in on Saturday on the shores of Lake Erie. So far the weather looks near perfect to sit outside listening to the sounds of the lake while hooking. I have been once again asked to set up my wares, but I don't have to sit at my booth all day.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
