~Hooking With Friends~

This is Rhonda ~myglorystars. Love the rug she is hooking! The colors she chose are beautiful.

Lots of beautiful wool.

Stacy and Katie

Katie's beautiful Persian cat.

This is a rug that hangs above the mantle. It is Katie and her sister on the beach at Lakeside/Marblehead, Ohio.

This is the rug that Stacy was working on, love the colors she used.
The picture below is the rug Katie is working on for charity.

Last night I went to hook with some girls. This is a first for me. Can you believe I've never hooked with anyone?? I like to talk instead of working on hooking but, I did hook. Katie has a Townsend so, I got to cut all my wool with it. It does "cut like butter". Katie has beautiful wool. Rhonda~myglorystars and Stacy were there.
They don't hook in the summer so, this is the first one. Katie is working on a huge rug that she is going to sell and give the money to a family. When she decides to do this I will put all the info. on my blog.

~Malabar Farm In the Spirit of Friends Show~

Left to right: Lisa, Kaye, me, Lori, Sherry, Karin, Bobbie

I had a fun weekend!! First, on Friday I went to Katie's house for a wool sale. She was selling it by the bag, I bought 14 bags. Saturday morning I met Sherry and her husband and took Sherry first to Katie's house so she could buy wool. Katie still had plenty of wool. Sherry bought 14 bags and I bought 2 more. It's addictive!! We then headed to Malabar Farms, where we were meeting our internet friends. We met at Bobbie's booth at 12:00. Sherry spotted Zoe first, that is Lori Rippey's adorable little Yorkie. It was so much fun talking with everyone that you usually don't see face to face.
I got to meet Sheila, don't know why she isn't in the picture. Also, got to see Rhonda~ myglorystars, Julie Thornton~crudeblackewe, Alice~folkartprimitives. It was so nice talking to everyone. Lori and her husband drove 14 hours from Northern Michigan. Bobbie's from Michigan also but, not as far north.

Also, I met Stacy Nash. I love her patterns and her finished cross stitch pieces. I bought her book, can't wait to get started. There will be a little twist to the pattern, Stacy said it would ok. So stay tuned LOL!!

~ Another Olde Rag Doll Rug~

I listed this rug on Ebay last night. I have a hard time getting the colors of the rug to come out right in the photo. The doll colors are a grungy white and I think they appear too bright.

The Goodyear Blimp just flew right over my house. They are heading down to Columbus to The OSU VS. USC Game. I was helping Lindsay load her car to head down to the game when the blimp flew over. She and her college friends are getting together at her apartment. Go Bucks!!!

~Flag Rug~

I just hooked this rug for a birthday present for my friend Chris. The pattern is Blackbird Design, I changed the colors. I'm going to make one for myself, I love patriotic rugs!
I have been sick since last Wednesday. I have felt terrible!! I had a gallbladder, liver, and kidney scan this morning. Everything is good, I'm so relieved. One more test to come back. I'm feeling alot better tonight. One good thing I lost 10 pounds.
