Hooking in Millersburg ~

I spent four glorious days with the most wonderful bunch of hookers :)  Lots of hooking, eating, laughing and learning new things.  I learned about shittens.  You can find them here.  Do you think I took many pictures?  I can't believe how few I took and we forgot to even have a throw down.  I did snag this one from a fellow hooker.  The room we hook in is wonderful!

Lynn's rug.  I'm in LOVE.  It is Colleen by Cathy Stephan of Red Barn Rugs.  40" x 57".  She started this in April at the Great Lakes Rug Hooking Retreat in Geneva, Ohio.  Cathy was her teacher.

Stubbs' Runner.  Julie is hooking this from her worms.

This runner is 20' x 84" and she just started it at the retreat.  Talk about a fast hooker.

Compared to Julie, I am a real slacker.  I was hoping to get more hooked, but I am pleased with my progress.  This pic is a little washed out.

Each morning I was good and went for a walk.  One morning it was extremely foggy.

Though I am not a fan of the Amish (their treatment of animals and also their puppy mills), I did snap this on my walk.

I passed this many times each day and was wracking my brain trying to remember what they were called.  Today it dawned on me.  Croton.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

Your rug is looking wonderful! There is a lot of hooking done on the Stubbs runner, but what cut was she using? I hooked only the horse trainer part of that antique and it was long enough for me.

WOW that runner is awesome! Love yours too. Never knew the Amish had puppy mills? Plus I thought they treated their animals good because they needed them. Janice
