After taking last month off from our regular second Tuesday of the month the gals showed up in full force today for a day of hooking, stitching, gabbing and of course eating! Twelve, not counting yours truely, graced the studio with new projects, rugs in progress and many many plans for new rugs to come! These hookers are serious!!
Karen, Saundra,Cindy and Betsy working away!!
Betsy hooked this adorable 3-D sheep!! OMY goodness... she explains he will be getting legs made from old square nails!!
LOVE this guy!! Sheep are our favorite thing to hook! Betsy is so creative she didn't even use a pattern! A girl after my own heart!
Cindy smiles as Debbie ( behind Cindy's rug) shows off the fantastic finish on Cindy's Great Blue Heron Rug!! I remember when we picked out some of the wools for this rug here in the studio!
Is this a fantastic rug or what!! Cindy's own design!!
Cindy is a hooking maniac!! Here's another recent finish depicting birch trees! We all ooohhed and ahhhhed!!!
Meet Tammi!! She is fairly new to hooking!! She had us all drooling over the colors in this one she's almost done hooking! Plans are to frame it but she says that may change! It is lovely as is she!! So fun to welcome new hookers into our fold!!
Sharon is starting this beautiful pattern by Sally Kallin! Wow Wow!! The wools are scrumptious! She buys a lot of wool from the studio here!! These girls keep me busy in the dye pots and stocking wool on the shelves! I love every minute of it!!
A close up of some of the colors in Sharon's rug!
Pat is working on a trio of rugs! Fun designs! Pat had us all green with envy as she is leaving tomorrow to go to Sauder Village! We all tried to sneak into her trunk as stowaways!! LOL!!
Some proddy sunflowers by me and Betsy!! These are so fun to hook!! And we all agreed sunflowers make us happy and can use up those bits and pieces of wool!
Here's Nancy with her Harvest Moon appliqué, pattern design by Heart To Hand. Nancy is an avid appliquer and always has many projects going at once! Don't you love her background wools! She'll have this done in time to display for the autumn season ahead!
Nancy, Debbie, and Tammi working away!! I didn't get photos of everyone this time! As you can imagine they keep me pretty busy writing up orders and helping to pick out wools for their projects!
It just doesn't get any better! Doing what we love and sharing it with each other!
