Wednesday night I went out to Ebay Renee’s to get together and hook……it seems that’s the only hooking I get done is when I’m going somewhere to SPECIFICALLY hook.
Renee had “build your own nachos” and Sheri from Shabby Sheep brought THE MOST DELICIOUS chocolate sheet cake……as I said at the end of the evening….if that were my last meal I would die a happy woman!
Here are a few of the rugs from Wednesday.
Renee finishes rugs for a friend, Kathy Waddlington, and these are a couple of her rugs. I think Kathy only hooks BIG rugs! To get an idea of how big they are I had Renee sat down next to this one.
I love the combination of the burnt orange and the blues together!
Here is another of Kathy’s rugs waiting to be bound.
Here are pics of what WE have been working on. I’m still trudging along on the last garden rug, but slowly making progress…
Renee is making good progress on her crow rug…..
Sheri has finished hooking her chairpad for Jimmie Dean….okay, I say she is done, but I think she is still TWEAKING it.
This was a great opportunity, since we were at Renee’s, to show you how a lot of us here finish our rugs. We take them to Renee, and she serges around them for us.
First she draws an outline around the rug…..
Then serges it….
…..so it ends up like this……
…..then you can fold it foward and whip around it, or crochet around it or finish it however you’d like.
It’s a good thing….having a hooking buddy who’s basement is like craft-central!
