I am married to my wonderful husband Rob and we have two fur kids named Molly and Olivia. I love all things primitive. I have a need for making primitive stuff, shopping for junktiques and hooking rugs.
I have been missing in action I know, but I have been busy! I know that some of you can relate, but sometimes you just have to check out from the computer to get things done. I have lots of projects that are almost done and I am trying to get them all finished up. I have a busy couple of months.
First up, is a weekend away to go and hook with a bunch of wonderful ladies from The Hornets' Nest at the Caraway Baptist Conference Center on Asheboro NC. Looking forward to going and hooking for the weekend to finish up a couple of rugs.
Secondly, I am going to teach a workshop for a fun group of ladies in Urbanna, VA. I was suppose to teach there in October last year, but Hurricane Matthew changed those plans. So looking forward to seeing them again and planning some great rugs.
Thirdly, is the Stash Sister's Hook-In in Dayton TX, March 2-4, 2017. They have asked me to be a vendor there and to teach a mini workshop. The mini workshop I am going to teach is a Hooked and Sewn Collage. Here are the pictures of two of the collages that can be made during the workshop.
If you are interested in attending the Hook-In here is the contact information:
I have been hooking on a few things, I have had this rug hooked for quite sometime, but just now got it whipped around. It is called Summer Blossoms and measures 14" X 30". I will get it added to my ETSY shop if anyone is interested in the pattern.
I have been hooking a little, enough to finish this rug. Mostly I have been working on finishing some rugs. They were starting to pile up. Not that I don't like finishing, but I am excited to start the next rug!
I have been trying to finish a few rugs that have been left unfinished for way too long. The horse and the sheep rug were teacher workshop pieces (I have not been to teacher's workshop for 5 years) so that tells you how long they have been laying around. I modified them and simplified them so I could get them finished. I still have to bind them, but at least they are hooked!
