Yep, guilty as charged!
The problem with having hooked for twenty years is that you end up with a lot of small leftover pieces from every project you ever hooked. Mine are all jumbled together in a plastic bin, with hardly a piece larger than 1/4 yard.
So I dig through the mess and pull out the possibilities and lay them around me on the table.
Meanwhile the 'hooker's little helpers' move in.
Izzy is lounging and daydreaming in wooly splendour.
I was able to make a little progress. I'm still not sure of the background. It may be a little too dark.
Yesterday I ventured out of the house to go to the Blue and Gray hooking meeting. A lot of people showed up. Everyone must be getting cabin fever and needed a day out in spite of the frigid weather.
I took some pictures but they aren't the best. The sooner I got finished with the photos, the sooner I could TALK!
Our featured hooker for this month was Peg V. This is only a small sampling of her many lovely hooked projects.
There were many other people's rugs on display. Our meeting last month was cancelled due to the weather, so there were lots of new rugs being finished.
Here is Marion's completed peacock rug.
Doris is working on her Adam and Eve rug. She usually hooks pictorials in a fine cut, but this is proof of her versatility. Here she is using a wide cut to create this delightful primitive.
Isn't Adam cute!
It was an enjoyable meeting, with lots of conversation, sharing of ideas, and wonderful rugs on display.
I'm glad I decided to go.
Several of you asked about Zip's bluegrass workshop on Saturday.
There was a good turnout in spite of the fact that the morning started out with snow coming down. The activities got started a little late, but everyone made up for it with their enthusiasm.
Most of the class.
