Thanks for all the suggestions you shared for getting rid of the masking tape residue I talked about in my last post. After reading them all, I started with the easiest solution - Dawn dish soap - that's the kind I had on hand - so I just soaked the glass jar in soapy water for awhile and it scrubbed right off!
Last week I attended my monthly rug hooking meeting in SLC and enjoyed visiting with the gals there. There wasn't a LOT of rug hooking going on, but the projects that WERE there were great!
Nancy had all the wools she was using arranged in a basket for quick access and they looked so pretty that I just had to snap a picture of them. I'm pretty sure all the colors are in her dye book - Simply Beautiful Colors - available on Angela's website here.
And this is the rug they're going in - lots of fun stuff going on with this one!
Myra had hooked nearly this entire rug in 1-1/2 weeks and it was so cute. Just a simple Easter egg, but I really liked it - the pastels were so pretty together.
Yvonne came, but could only stay for a little while. So instead of bringing all her rug supplies, she brought a quilt so she could do some of the applique on it. Funny, because it's a Kim Diehl design, but it's in a different book than the one that I'm working on.
Next month I'm going to the Denver Hook-In. I was looking at their guild's website and I also visited their blog and saw this design challenge shared there - thought it would be fun to try my hand at it and hope to have it done in time to take with me. It's just 18" square so shouldn't take a long time for me to hook.
And finally, on my way home that day, I stopped at the thrift store and found this cute little felted purse - I see there is one exactly like it on ebay selling for $29 - I paid $1 for mine so think I got a good deal on it!
