This past weekend I went to Walnut Creek for a hook in. There was lots of beautiful wool and lots of rug patterns. Love seeing the rugs that other hookers brought for the show. I didn't bring an because I let a little early, it was the OSU spring football game. Had to get back to watch. This first rug was one of my favorites, I really need to hook a rug like this to get rid of all my extra strips. It was hooked by Marlene who works at Country Craft Cupboard. She also has a line of patterns she has designed.
This one was hooked by Melanie, Marlene's sister. She said she used cookie cutters and designed around the shapes.

Yesterday, my friend Chris and I got together and made bee skeps. We have been talking about making them for months. This is a picture of mine. We made them in Chris's garage,hopefully they have dried enough to bring it home today.
We used cement with no gravel,straw,peat moss and vermiculite. 1 part Portland cement(or cement with no gravel) 1½ parts peat 1½ parts vermiculite straw few handfuls cut up
Chris used the cone and I used a base from a bird bath. We covered them with plastic and I sprayed with canola oil.
