Last night, I headed out to the country to hook at eBay Renee’s. Okay, we usually hook some, but last night I don’t think any of us pulled a loop.
Blogless Sandy was looking through Renee’s ProChem dye swatch book looking for some perfect sky colors to dye……
She’s going to dye a sky for this darling pattern that she designed for her step-grand-daughter, Aspen. LOVING the pink owl! She’s envisioning her with button eyes for a great hoot-owl look.
Yes, she just sat down and drew this right on the backing……needless to say, I’m impressed!
Renee had a rug that was finished and just needs to be bound….isn’t that tree the bomb?! She spent her evening binding a rug for another hooker as well as packaging up a few things to ship to her eBay customers.
This is just a shot of an adorable box that she purchased from one of our local hookers, Judith Groff.
Here is a shot of some of Renee’s wonderful STASH! You can find her wools on SKIP TO MY EWE on eBay.
As for me, well, I sucked the friendship well dry last night :)
Renee serged around my 2nd garden rug, steamed it with her super-duper-steamer and then the quilt binding I had purchased after work…..well, I got it out of the package and I had bought the wrong size…..just so happened she had the size I needed in the color I needed…..WAHOO….then she proceeded to sew the cording into it for me as well, AND I had to borrow one of her needles to start attaching it to the rug…..now that is what I call friendship! Oh yeah, the pictures…..taken with Renee’s camera! That woman is a saint!
A great night, no hooking, but one of those nights where everyone is just simmering. That’s what I like to call it…..working on other little parts of the hooking process….letting those new ideas simmer until they are just right….I’m guessing that the next time we get together the wool will be flying and the loops will being pulled fast and furious.
