I’ve set the old rug aside for a while.
Today was a scorcher, but inside the E-Plex it was nice and cool in the a/c. We always have lots of interest when we demonstrate rug hooking, but this year I was surprised at how many people asked if we were punch hooking.
I’ve demonstrated for probably the last 6 years or so and I’ve NEVER had people ask me before…this year I had at least 10 people ask me that…..odd….very odd…..at least they weren’t asking if it was latch hook.
A few days ago I jumped on April DeConick’s bandwagon with:
What a great idea! Please visit her blog for more details.
On Saturday I sat outside and ended up hooking for WAY more than 10 minutes and got my rug to here:
While I was at the fair today, I got more of the background hooked in.
I think you can see the dark background color a little better in the close-ups.
Dulcy was working on her hydrangea tote
and Sheri was working on her Shabby Sheep banner rug
I borrowed both pictures from their blogs, so they are actually much further along than in the pictures. Actually, Dulcy has the hooking of her hydrangea tote COMPLETED!
Oh yeah, COUNTDOWN!
Heading to RUGS ON THE ROCKS on August 9th with 3 dear friends and meeting up with more friends when we get there.
Maine will never be the same again!
