Being so busy with our Christmas Show this past week I didn't get a chance to post the pictures of our second Tuesday of the month Hook-in here at Red House Wool Studio!
Sherry is a brand new rug hooker! I LOVE her hair don't you! When I was a young girl I always wanted red hair! Just like Sherry's!
She took right off on her first rug!
This is Mya! She is brand new to rug hooking also! She plans to hook a rug similar to my hit and miss square one you see on the table! She took right off as well! I know these girls are going to be wonderful rug hookers! Diving right in and learning to pull those first few loops is all it takes!
Remember Tammi? A few posts back I introduced her as she was working on her third or fourth rug! Turns out she is a FABULOUS applique'er! Look at the stitches on this wonderful pieced mat by Primitive Gatherings! I could stare at it all day long!
Many of you know Pat... a most talented rug hooker... she's working on my Merry Christmas design doing such beautiful work! She brought this Halloween rug that she had framed! It is wonderful and a design by Jody Aman and available on the Need'l Love website. We love spending a few minutes when everyone arrives for a bit of show and tell!
Had to show you my little scraggly Christmas tree! I LOVE them very sparse and with a few little red berries ( fake ones that I added)! My friend Lisa cut this one along the ditch for our Christmas show and it was left over so I rescued it! It's just the kind of tree I wanted!
So it will be a very busy few weeks now before Christmas and the end of the year! Can you believe it?! I'll be another year older in December too... Old enought to retire! Yikes! I can't decide if I should sign up for Social Security as being self-employed for many of my working years I sure won't get a big check! But maybe it's time....
Happy Thanksgiving Dear Friends!
