Monthly Meeting

Last week was rug hooking on the day after Halloween and we had a great turnout of eleven people - it's always so much fun to visit and see what everyone is working on each month.

Marilyn brought these hooked cobs of Indian corn all finished up - so cute - and perfect to display during the harvest season. She got the pattern out of a recent issue of Create & Decorate.


Last month Tonia was working on a 3D sheep project, and this time she brought it and it's friend - both completely finished. The swirls give the illusion of curly sheeps wool - and she used twigs from her yard for their little legs. They have little rusty bells tied around their necks.


Jeanette found a wooden star with an opening that was just screaming for a hooked insert.


This is the project I've been working on - a penny rug that I started during the long drive to and from California last month. I'm using coat wool that felted up too heavy to use for hooking. It's pitiful, but I really haven't pulled a single loop all summer long - I need to get back to it.....and SOON!


Marliss had a lovely table set for our refreshments. Such a nice time!

Sounds like such a fun time - but, oh - I'm absolutely smitten with those little sheepies!! Too, too, sweet!!! And I'm in the same boat as you - haven't hooked at all for a long, long, time - now, I have dozens of projects I want to get to and with all that's on my plate, it looks unlikely....wish I would've made hay when the sun was shining! Have a great evening.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I've been too busy spinning to hook...but I miss it. I'm going to a hook-in on Saturday, but I'll probably just bring my flower pot rug to bind. I should try to get a new project on the frame...sigh!
I love the sheep. I really love your pennies.
Hugs!

What a fun get together - all of the projects are great, but I really think those little sheep would like to live with me!
