A room full of rug hookers.

Q:  What do you get when you combine a gaggle of rug hookers, excellent vendors, and door prizes?

A:  The annual Brandywine Hook-In.

Many thanks to the hard working members of the Brandywine guild for hosting another fun day of rug hooking and camaraderie on a beautiful October day.  It takes a lot of planning and advance preparation to successfully host such an event.

I brought along my Down to Earth meditation mat to bind.  I got a bit done, but there were too many pleasant distractions.  I will finish the whipping with yarn this coming week. This fun day was topped off with my winning of a great door prize!

Tomorrow is Halloween, one of my favorite days of the year. Since moving here to PA, I have attended an annual spooky dinner at the Olde Log Cabin Homestead in Elizabethtown, PA.  It’s a night filled with stories, traditions, and a solemn ceremony to remember our departed loved ones.  I hope tomorrow will be a special day for you, too.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the honoring of our dearly departed.

P.S.  Tune in next week when I will be doing another BOOK GIVEAWAY.

This is a room filled with people focused on rug hooking and having fun.
