What's better than getting together with friends???
Getting together with friends to hook or eat, or both!
The week started with a meeting of the Blue and Gray hookers. What a great group of happy ladies chatting and showing their work! I was so busy talking that I didn't get any pictures and Doris's camera batteries went dead so we have to depend on Kathy from 'Rugs of Mine in Time' for the visual delights. Check out her blog, she did a great job!
On Wednesday evening my friends Willa and Diane and I got together for our monthly women's dining out night. We went to Montezuma's Mexican Restaurant on Wayne Ave. in Chambersburg. We were fairly early so I had a chance to take this shot be fore all the tables began filling up.
The food was very good, as usual. I had made whole wheat breat earlier in the day, and will admit to 'testing' it more than I should have! So I wasn't very hungry and ended up getting an order of guacamole and a spinach and cheese quesadilla. Quite yummy! Wish I would have gotten a shot of the food BEFORE we had almost devoured it!
Yesterday was the weekly hookin at Grant Street Woolworks. Not a lot of people there during the day, but we had a good time talking and checking out each other's work. Ellen came up from Virginia and joined us. She also brought a tin of scrumptious brownies!!! Thank you Ellen!!!
Doris is taking a picture of Ellen and Jill discussing hooking frames. And here is Ellen's lovely rug. It's a Gene Shephard pattern. Arent the colors delightful?
Kathy was working on her house sampler rug. I don't want that bird landing on my house!!! LOL!
This is Doris's beautifully hooked Kris Kringle. She's doing it in a #3 cut. Look at that wonderful swirly sky. I wish the sculpting of the fur trim and beard had shown up better.
This is Jill's delightful colorful rug. It's like Jill herself- Happy and Energetic!
In June Doris will be teaching a sculpting class featuring these lovely strawberries. I'm signed up and ready for the challenge! If you are interested in joining us, contact Linda at Grant Street to see if there are still openings.
I worked on whipping the edges of my small circular star mats. I want to give a tutorial in a future post on how I do them if anyone is interested.
I'm glad this post is almost finished because the uploading of the pictures is going kind of wacky and the text is slow when I'm trying to type. I hate it when you get almost done and then the whole thing gets lost!!! Yeesh!
I'm coming up on my 100th post in the near future. There will be a give-away at number 99.
Until next time, Happy Hooking!
