I know that spring is definitely on the way when I go to the Woolwrights’ hook-in in Lancaster, PA. Those ladies do a superb job putting on this annual event. There were many wonderful vendors and lots of rug hookers sharing their beautiful rugs. The Magdalena Rug Hookers, the group I’m in, had a nice turnout and did some impressive shopping and hooking!
I took my Harvest Moon rug and whipped most of the border. I was so happy to find Lopi yarn to match the fuschia wool that I dyed. I will finish it up this week and fix the back of the rug for hanging. Then when I host Breakfast Club on March 29th, I will exchange this rug for a fabulous mosaic of pumpkins by Jo Alexander. I cannot wait! I will share photos when the exchange takes place.
I have finished my week of animal wifery for the neighbors’ 28 hens and 13 guinea fowl. I have a refrigerator filled with the most colorful eggs! They are destined for several quiches and the rest will be made into delicious pickled beet eggs. What a treat!
I’m still pondering what rug I’ll do next as I work on a super-secret rug for a group project. There is an idea percolating in the back of my brain.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in a room full of rug hookers and a henhouse filled with egg layers.
