Hi ho--- Hi Ho! It's off to Green Lake I go

Well the time has come to take off for Green Lake Rug Camp---almost ready to hit the road.  I still need to load the tubs on the back of the Pathfinder.  We have a lot of ivy on our tree in the front and it is dripping sap all over so I decided to wait till morning to load the tubs and I plan to get the hose out to spray it off before I do---it is a mess.

Here is a picture of what was some beautiful orange wool.  I am very thankful that the smell woke me up---things could have been so much worse.  I have a new rule---I will never leave anything on the stove---at the end of the day all pots are emptied and put away---no exceptions!
The smoke smell is gone and all  is well.

I have been working on my project for South Central Teacher's workshop---the piece is finished but I still have to write my report.  Here is a sneak peak at my version of a Grenfell hooked in wool.  I did learn that it is very difficult to make it round when hooking in straight lines.

I bought this wonderful old sewing box on Ebay and I received it this week---it had my name on it.  Check this out.

This is a picture of my mini class for Green Lake---a hooked journal cover---These make fun gifts!

One thing rug hookers like to do is eat---we have a ritual  with my hooker's from Greenwood that we eat lunch at the tearoom before class.

This ia a picture of my booth at The Greenwood Mercantile after I cleaned it up after class.

Well the buzzer just went off on the dryer so I gotta run and finish packing.

Have a great week!


  1. I love the tea room in Greenwood, especially the sweet potato fries. Wish I was there with you. Donna
