Hooking and a super easy dessert!

It’s summer and I’m all about easy!
I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted about rug hooking……
Had a few of the girls over to hook……
and eat…..
We had the grilled hearts of Romaine that I talked about HERE,
topped with grilled chicken, feta or bleu cheese, craisins, almonds
and dressing. On mine I tried this Maple Fig dressing….
Sandy is working on some cute flip-flops…..

Ebay Renee is hooking some stars…..

Dulcy of Dulcy’s Doorstep has started a new piece…..looks like a little cottage….

Sheri of Shabby Sheep is working on a purse…..

Kelly is working on binding…..

….and I’m still working on the Redbud runner….

Of course we had a little vino after dinner and got to hooking…..

Even Lonnie came and hung out with us….

For dessert I made this super easy strawberry
shortcake on a stick…..

Just alternate strawberries and chunks of angel food
cake on skewers and then dip it in whipped cream or use the
spray on kind. (freeze your cake first….it will be easier
to cut into chunks)
Found this great idea at Lemonade Makin’ Mama ……


  1. Love it girly!! I've never seen a hooking party before... that kinda sounded wrong the way it just came out.. LOL But seriously, that looks really fun! I might have to check that out. :) Thanks for the shout out too.


  2. Looks like a great evening! I'm all for the wine, perfect with that salad, and you can't go wrong with strawberry shortcake. Yum! Happy hooking, Tammy

  3. Glad to see everybody is hooking despite the hot weather! Lots of cool drinks must've been on hand! lol! I'm so glad you posted the link to the grilled romaine lettuce again because I was going to try and go back to your post and find it. I will be trying it real soon! I think with brats maybe tomorrow night!

  4. What a beautiful evening. It sounds heavenly and I love the special effect photos of the girls. It's always fun to follow you. JB

  5. First of all.... Jim love his shortcake on a stick, as did I! Great pictures, and love the hookers with wine bottles in plain view. I'm doing to romaine hearts sometime next week.... and probably.... with some chicken. Looking forward to hooking again tomorrow!

  6. Tammy, You guys are having way too much fun! I love what everyone is working on and the short cake looks so good. I hope your weather cools soon.
