I think she's as obsessed with sheep as I am - here are pictures of some of her collection.
Her wool stash is neatly displayed on great shelves and racks.
Her bedroom is a calm and uncluttered oasis with a great rug hanging above the pencil post bed.
And this is the rug she's working on right now - looks like a scene from an old English countryside - something you might see in a movie. She said nearly all the wool she used was as-is - only the blue sky was dyed.
The cobblestone cottage really caught my attention - here's the wool she used to hook it with - and by hooking this way and that way - instead of in straight rows - it really gives the effect of stone walls.
The red flowers in the foreground are hooked with a soft red yarn - and some of the green grass is hooked with yarn that changes from thick to thin - giving a great texture.
Tonia fed us some yummy chicken & rice soup - plus toasted pita bread for lunch. We also did a cookie exchange (the first time ever for me) which was really fun. Besides providing us with lunch and a lovely place to meet, Tonia also gave each of us a darling sheep pendant that she made - what a TREAT! I'm going to love wearing this - thanks so much for your hospitality Tonia! We all had a great time!
