Sooo, anyway, last week's hook-in went very well. Linda was away starting her classes for certification for Rug Hooking. Which by the way, she said she had a wonderful time!!! I kept the hook-in going. It's my one day away and I just love being around such wonderful people. It was just Barb and I first thing in the morning, and then she had to go take her grand-daughter to the Orthodontist. Soooo, here I sit all by my lonesome. So I decided to take a picture of myself hooking since I thought it was going to be the only picture I posted LOL. Sometimes I just crack myself up!
I brought all my worms to sort out by color. Figured it would take a while, and it did. But it's done. I had put them all into separate bags.
You can see the worms in the bags here. And I did get some work done. Finished one piece and started to outline another.
Also took some pictures of some of the New wools and Patterns Linda received in. Oooh, they are sooo nice.
Here are some of the newer wools to build up your stash, along with a sample of some of them hooked up so you can see how they will look in your piece..
Jill came and is working on her rug for her son. I would say it won't be much longer, and it will be finished.
Nancy is working on her oriental. It is just beautiful!!
Joan was working on a felting piece for the Fair and I didn't get a shot of it :(. But couldn't resist this one LOL.
We have two new women who have recently started coming to the shop to learn how to hook. And talk about enthusiasm!! They just burst with it! This is Jackie. And since this shot, she has already completed most of her background around the bird along with the leaves and cherries. It's turning out wonderful! She'll be done with this in no time and has already picked out another pattern or 2 :).
And here is Jackie with Bonnie her friend. Bonnie chose to do a pumpkin mitten and it's looking great. I'm pretty sure they will be back this week again!
Barb was working on a quilting piece.
And here is what Sherri has been working on. Her little bags for Christmas gifts. I just love them!
