Hooking & Quilting

I've had a fun and busy week so far - two of my monthly meetings fell on consecutive days and they were both held at my house.

Wednesday night my Little by Little quilt group came and I had a small penny rug project ready for them to stitch up - everyone made one and took it home finished.

Tuesday morning the rug hookers were here and we enjoyed our visit. I love talking with these gals because they always tell me about good books that they've read, good recipes they've made and other important stuff! Sharon is nearly finished with this great rug - the design is from one of Maggie Bonanomi's books.

Jeanette was working the whipping the edges of this rug she has finished - she did it the way Gene Shepherd promotes and it looked really good.

Sandy started a cute snowman rug - we really liked the way his scarf hooked up when she used this striped wool - gave it a cool effect!

I have another rug hooking group to go to next week and I'm looking forward to that too!

Hi Gayle,
Looks like y'all have been having fun! I like the Maggie rug too!
Wish I lived closer, I come learn to hook! I so wanna be a Hooker! (don't tell my Mom I said that)

You were a busy hostess this week - is that every week? I love the little snowman scarf too - great use of the wool.

I posted the recipe for the logs on my blog. Thanks for asking for it.

It looks like you were very busy and had a lot of fun. I like the blocks that your quilt group are making. I love Jeanette's sheep rug. Sandy always finds different wool that looks great! Thanks for sharing.

You do stay busy, don't you!? Sounds like lots of fun to be had in your neck of the woods!
