Yesterday the heat came back! I decided to sweat it out (literally!) and go to the hook-in at Grant Street. Yes, it was a/c'd and the fan was running.
I haven't been very attentive to taking pictures lately, so went with all good intentions of shooting some good ones. Doris is working on the most amazing large rug with colorful flowers and leaves. I wanted to make sure I got some close-ups of the shading.
I forgot to ask Doris, but I think the shading is done with dip dyed strips. Aren't the colors great?
Just as I finished up taking these picture, my camera gives me the happy little message 'please recharge battery'. So much for lots of pictures!!!
We had a new young person working on her first hooked project that she designed herself. Her name (I think) is Jessica and she is in the tenth grade. She has drawn up a design with seashells and will be doing her background in a lovely mottled blue and white, sky and sea. Maybe next time I can get a picture of her work.
We also had a visitor from Winchester, VA who came for the first time. Jane, I hope you come back and join us again!
Darn, this isn't any fun without pictures! They sure are worth a thousand words!!!
But I do have a few kitty pictures. (You knew I would)
Penny is climbing the window screen in pursuit of a fly. By the time these kids are adults the screens will be shredded!
And look! I just printed out a cute little Isabell.
Deiter is HOT!!! But why would he be sleeping in the tent instead of in front of the fan???
As I am typing it is starting to thunder.
Oh, good! Here comes the rain! I hope it cools things off.
You can see how thirsty our grass has been getting.
