Hello Dear Friends! Yesterday afternoon I had the pleasure of hooking with a group in Council Grove, Kansas. Several years ago, when I was first learning how to hook (Do I really know 'how'?), I had heard there was a group there... but I didn't know who, where, or when they met. Well, to my delight, I met one of the gals when she visited my shop a month or so ago. She was so sweet to call me & give me an invite to the group!
Thank you, Barbara!
This group meets once a month. We met at the Historical Society in Council Grove yesterday, but they normally have a larger group... and meet at someone's home. Many of the hookers were away on vacations... but four of us met, hooked, and chatted the afternoon away yesterday. I had met Barbara at my shop... but also there were Georgia and Linda. The ladies were very friendly, kind, and personable. I look forward to meeting with them again next month.
They are planning on attending the Lenexa hook-in next week too... so I will get to see them all again then. *smile*
Ya know... I did have my camera with me, but forgot about it until I was on the drive home. What is wrong with me? I'm loosing my mind!
Barbara was working on a sweet rug that looked like an old 'Main Street'. I just love old, downtown Main Streets! This one had an antique shop in the design. Very cool! Georgia was whipping the edges on a sweet Easter Bunny rug. It was very bright & cheery! Linda was hooking on a Judy Cripps Christmas stocking. It had an awesome reindeer in the center of it.
I didn't get my supplies gathered to take until late Monday night. I couldn't decide what to take... then I realized I had this tulip rug started from many YEARS ago... one that I had lost the desire to hook on. Well, I took it and finished most of the hooking during the afternoon. I hooked on it a little more this morning... and steamed it. The photograph is not the best... I'll get a better one after it is completely finished. Now... to get those edges bound and call it DONE!
Today I have many things left to work on... painting, hooking, punching, stitching. I'll be in the shop soon.... and keeping my hands busy.
Have a blessed day!
Wishing you all warm smiles...
