Hook-In

I attended the Utah Hook-In on Saturday, but sadly, didn't think to take very many photos. A friend snapped this picture of me with the door prize I won - a basket full of yummy wool!

And this is the project I started that day. My sweet DIL said she'd love to have me hook a rug for her, so she looked and looked to find something she liked and decided on a design from West Elm. I will hook MY version of it. It's very modern and definitely out of my comfort zone, which will make it fun to work on. With any luck I can get it finished by Christmas (crossing my fingers!)

Two weeks ago we went with two of our kids and their families to Moab to go off-roading and do a bit of hiking. We had a wonderful time in a beautiful place - people come from all over the world to see our state!

What a wonderful prize to win, I know you will have fun working with that.
Sometimes it is fun to hook something out of our comfort zone, especially for gifts.

What a cute photo of you, Gayle! And that is a yummy looking basket of wool! How lucky for you.
Really curious to see the outcome of the project for your DIL.
I haven't been to Moab and the surrounding area in years, but have many good memories of hiking there with the family. It is a very unique place.

Great picture Gayle, you seem to get younger every time I see you!
Curious what you are going to make for your DIL.
Isn't Moab awsome? I hate the crowds but the surroundings are so amazing! Your state has it all! Just 💓 It!

You look so cute with your basket of woolie treats! It will be fun to see your interpretation of a modern wool piece. I've not made it the canyon area of Utah, but it's definitely on my list.

Congratulations on winning all the wool! I went to the Denver Hook-In with my friend Debra and I was overwhelmed with how amazing it was. I'd never seen so many wonderful vendors in one place! I'm still looking forward to coming to Utah!

Lucky you to win the door prize with wool goodness. Thankfully after 3 years in a row hooking Christmas gifts this year will be for ME.
