Yesterday, I drove to Warsaw, MO to attend the 1st Truman Lake Rug Show and Hook-In.
All I can say is fabulous! Patty and her “flock” put on quite a stupendous event!
I spent most of my time talking to hooking friends that I hadn’t seen in a while, and did manage to get a little hooking done. I did get several pictures from the rug show to share with you. (sorry that I didn’t get pics of ALL the rugs, but I got a lot)
We got to vote on our favorite rug in the show, so I’ll also let you know which rugs got 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
I also got to meet Wendy Miller of “The Red Saltbox” and let her know that her wool covered cording technique has changed my life. Seriously….if you haven’t tried this you MUST! Isn’t it fun to meet someone that you’ve only known through the internet for years and they turn out to be just as nice as you thought they would?!
Okay, on with the show!
Below is the rug that took 3rd place in the “Viewer’s Choice”
Below is the rug that took 2nd place in the “Viewer’s Choice”
Below is the rug that took 1st place in the “Viewer’s Choice”
I’m proud to say that I know both of the women who hooked the 1st and 2nd place rugs.
1st place was Judith Groff and she hooked this from a picture of a one room school house where she went to school.
2nd place was Nelda Johnson….although this is hooked in a primitive palette, Nelda was one of the people who first influenced me to hook with bright colors.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
