Hello Dear Friends! I'm so excited to share this with you! Today was Judy Cripps' monthly hook-in and it was so much fun! Judy and her hubby, Brice, have their home decorated for Christmas beyond belief! There is Christmas in every room... even the garage ~ which is now called 'The Hooking Garden'~ (It is called that because the amount of hookers that come to the hook-in each month has grown too large for just the house to hold us!) This month, Judy treated us all to lunch. It was a delicious casserole of pasta, sauce, beef & pepperoni... a fresh green salad... garlic bread... and yummy brownies! We all chatted, hooked, ate, shopped, and really enjoyed the day!
For the season, Judy offered us a really cool exchange that included something for us PLUS a chance to help others. She drew up a simple star on monk's cloth & offered it to us with the proceeds going to the Topeka Rescue Mission. Then, we hooked the star, wrapped it with our names inside the box, and brought it to the hook-in today... where we then put our names in a basket to draw & choose a package with someone else's piece. My SIL and I were called early on & did choose each others package.... did we cheat? LOL
Here is the group of us in the 'Hooking Garden'....
This is the rug that I received from Robin. Her dear Jimmy made the barn wood frame. I'm planning on starting the re-do of our spare bedroom this week... this is going to find the perfect home there! :) It is a cherished gift from my sweet SIL!
Here is a close up of my rug.
Thank you, Judy, for hosting such a fun gathering every month! I'm already looking forward to January!
Many warm smiles to all....
