Well....our two days at Sauder came and went too fast!! After weeks of anticiption and looking forward to a little getaway...it came and went like a flash! But we had such a great time! My pals, Melissa, Sue, and Pat all met up on Thursday afternoon. Lauren came on Friday morning. Between eating, yacking, shopping, and hooking...we had a wonderful time. The October hook-in at Sauder is a fairly new event, but it is gaining in popularity. Last year, there were only 30 registered, this year there were 48. I believe the capacity is 60. Some of my friends from my guild were there as well. It's just a nice and relaxing couple of days to hook and catch up with good friends!
This is Sue's rug...she designed it herself...similar to a Rufus Porter painting (Sue was a folk art painter years ago). I love it! Makes me rethink some of my old painting and perhaps put them to linen and wool....
Then next, is my buddy Pat. She enjoys the Oxford punch rather than the hook. For her, it is faster & she does a wonderful job. She uses wool yarn and wool strips. I'm not sure who's design this is...but it will be beautiful when done!
This is Lauren's rug. I believe this is a guild project, but I'm not sure. I love her colors. Lauren does a lot of dyeing and these colors are beautiful!
And last, is my hooking. It is a design from Karen Kahle. I'm going to try and get it done before December. I have a long way to go! In between all of my other projects...just not enough time in the day! I was hooking the beard in off white, when one of my friends gave me "Homespun yarn" a brand from Lion Brand yarn, purchased at Joann's. I think it is perfect for his beard and cuff!!
These two little guys, found their way to a new home. I ventured out of my comfot zone and made these two little teddies from a Druann Jeffries pattern, that she now offers on her Etsy. They were fun to make!!
And last....these are the types of texts I get from my son....not, how are you...or what's up...oh no....my second oldest has to send me a scene out of the scariest movie (made for TV movie) that has terrified me for years...UGH!! Salem's Lot...written by Stephen King...I still have a hard time looking out of a window at night....thanks Shane...love you too...:-0
Have a wonderful Sunday....and again, thank you for all of your comments and for reading my blog
