20150206-100651.jpgAs I walked back to my car, a man a few doors down from the shop on a mini fork lift manoeuvring crates asked me if I’d just come from “playing at rug hooking”! I laughed and replied that yes, I had. It’s was a great couple of days of “rug hooking”!

    Oh such beauties and inspiration!!! So jealous of your group and common loves and talents! I keep plugging along in the midst of freezing temperatures, snow, ice and winter isolation……roads too dangerous to get out to visit friends!! Of course, no one really lives close! But my poor golfer could stand it no more…….jumped in his truck and drove over 900 miles to San jose ca to play a weekend of golf with his brother in law! Roads outside of Washington were going to be okay…and temps there were to be great! However when he arrived, he felt chills the first night and spent his week in the stay and play hotel sick as a dog with the flu. After a couple of days he decided he wasn’t going to get better quickly and didn’t want to pay those prices without the ability to play golf… drove home without ever getting a club out of his bag or even seeing his brother in law!!! Now HE REALLY is depressed!

    Rug Hooking!! That’s so funny!! I find people call quilting “Tapestry”. All these quilts and blocks are so beautiful!! I love the variety of projects and colour/fabric choices.

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
