Yesterday, was the annual Ann Arbor Hook In...and it was terrific!!  I met up with my Holly Hookers and we had a great time!  We didn't do any hooking, but we all had rugs to bind.  And of course, we did a lot of shopping! It was held at  Washtenaw Community College, which all of us just love!!  The lighting is perfect, it's clean,  so much room...We all wish it was held there every year!  The vendors are in rooms that are bright and you're able to see the beautiful colors of the wool without additional lighting.  Here are some pictures...I'm only going to post half of them today and them some on Tuesday.  

The above rug is an Edyth O'neill rug hooked by Lynne Kossarek, who was a vendor at the show.  She has the most beautiful hand-dyed wool.   She sells out of her studio in Romeo MI.  "Never Enough Wool" is her trade name.  I love her hand dyed wool.....simply gorgeous!
The above rug was designed and hooked by Lynne also.  

This jacket (purchased from the Salvation Army) was designed and hooked by my hooking buddy, Bonnie, from Holly MI.  It is just adorable!!  Bonnie just started  hooking a little over a year ago...unbelievable!!  She is a natural!!
                                             More views of her jacket

A sweet pillow, made by cute...Proddy...and a crochet edge.

Sue's beautiful geometric rug...I love the primitive, antique colors she chose!


Pat's beautiful pillow...She changed her edging to proddy and it is just gorgeous!

Sue's cute, bunny is adorable!

Then, I wanted to take a picture of the sheep this gal had designed and hooked.  IT is so darn cute!! It will be stuffed and be able to stand on it's own little black cloth sweet!  And
 she is also a newbie in the hooking world!!

It was a great day in Ann Arbor!  I hadn't hooking in almost two it was really inspiring to see all that has been going on in the hooking world....and just one more show what's been going on in our little world:
 Our little girl....eyes wide open!  She started using a bottle yesterday, so hopefully her feeding tube will be out tomorrow!!  Have a great day!
