The Woolwrights’ annual hook-in was on Saturday. They always do a spectacular job organizing the day with excellent vendors, snacks galore [hookers get hungry!], and lots of opportunity to network and catch up with friends old and new.
I spent the past ten days being a bird nanny for seventeen very spoiled hens and eight guineas, so I was a little late getting to the hook-in. I took my tombstone angel to work on. I knew I had to make a beeline to Jan Cole, The Wool ‘n Gardener, to buy some of her fabulous spot-dyed wool for the tombstone background behind the angel.
I must confess that I did not do any hooking! I was much too busy shopping, talking, looking at others’ hooking projects and the excellent rug show. Although I didn’t pull one loop, it was a great day and was good for my hooking soul.
I will get busy hooking my tombstone angel this week. I should have all the wool I need [and more].
Look below for photos of a few of the many beautiful rugs in the rug show.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in a huge room full of rug hookers.
