More hooking today

I guess I can say I'm really lucky that I have a few groups to hook with each month. I hear some rug hookers don't have any one to hook with. Wish you could be here with me! Today I was able to go to the Cumberland Valley Rug Hookers group in Chambersburg, Pa. I got some more done on my rug, but it's on the frame right now and haven't taken an update of it. Sill hooking this evening. I did however get a few shots of what the group was working on. Wish I would have gotten more. There were a few I missed....Yes Marian, I forgot to take one of yours. (Marian likes to read my blog lol). Next time for sure! And I forgot to take one of Doris' rug.
Here is Joan peeking behind her rug. It's almost done. Isn't it great?? Wonderful choice of colors.
This one here is done by Ruth, and it is a gift for her daughter. I believe she is working on a pillow right now for her daughter also. Lucky girl!

This is Peg and her rug. She's just about done and has a little bit more border to do. Very nice colors.....

And the last one is Ann with her rug. Just a little bit more on the border on the side to hook and it is done. It's just beautiful in person.
Some of the girls ended up following Linda to her rug hooking shop which was right around the corner to see it for the first time. I'm sure they loved it! I'll get back there soon enough..

Well, I'm not sure what is going on with me, but I think I may be coming down with a cold. I've been coughing all afternoon and I'm ready for another cup of tea to soothe it. I will take some cold medicine before I go to bed and see if I can knock it out of me. I was fine this morning. Weird how it came on all of a sudden.

Hope you all enjoyed more pictures! Sure is fun being able to share them with you. I will try and post another update of my rug tomorrow sometime.

Kathy, Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures of the show. It's so nice to see them when we can't attend them in person.

Yup, no one to hook with and am having a hard time finding a decently priced online source! I'll start #2 after the first of the year.

Thanks so much for sharing the pictures, this post and the last, they were WONDERFUL!
